So Easy, So Yummy Sotanghon Recipes for Homeschooling Kids

Apart from supporting healthy growth and development, eating right helps children focus and learn better. But don’t just prep meals with lots of veggies and greens! It’s equally important to cook up dishes and snacks that the kids will surely love and crave for.

In the time of COVID-19 when homeschooling is a safer, more practical approach to education, work up a meal or snack plan with an ingredient both Pinoy adults and kids love: chewy sotanghon or glass noodles.

Quick Chicken Sotanghon
