Noodles ...... A great majority of children normally prefer a meal of noodles rather than a rice meal. I remember that once my children told me that they will not get 'jelak' (bored) even with 3 meals in a day, of noodles, especially won ton mee ...... egg noodles, be it soupy or dry. Here's a delicious and well balanced preparation of won ton mee which they will always enjoy with glee.
