I quite like Sharwoods, not that I'm convinced I could taste the difference between brands though. Something else I need to taste test the supermarket own label I think....

Or do you mean the ones with flavours added?

I use egg noodles if I am using for a meal, with sweet and sour etc, but the older ones like the asda 9p ones for a snack!!!

dd is a funny eater and at the mo -likes spaggetti so i though i'd try noodels - i've heard one or two people say they give noodels so i wondered if it's the packets with flavours or sharwood type noodles.

I often use the fresh noodles in tesco or sainsburys - around 99p a pack. Just stir fry them with a sachet of sweet and sour sauce and some cooked cut up chicken. Takes 2 mins.

either the fresh noodles which are normally in the veg aisle at the supermarket or the dried sharwoods or supermarket own brand egg noodles, then add my own veges and sauce to try and control fat and salt (more for me than the kids on the fat front) and maybe some chicken. ds's have been eating these since they were about 16 months old, good finger food, although very messy.

sometimes as a lunch time snack in cooler weather we have the supernoodle variety, chicken or bacon flavoured and sometimes the tesco value oe asda ones which are about 8 or 9p a packet. but not when they were little as too much salt in them.

The only thing to watch, fairydust, is the salt content of the flavoured ones. I used to give Supernoodles as an occasional lunch treat to ds1, but we've not had them for a few months now as a drastic attempt to cut our processed food intake. Had them again the other day during a stock cupboard crisis and I nearly gagged on them because they were so salty - I'd never noticed before!

The flavourings do come in a seperate sachet though so i just cook the noodles without adding the sachet which is where most of salt content is i think and then add some grated cheese, tuna, sweetcorn tnat sort of thing and they love it

LOL, I thought this was going to be a cunning variation on "baby pasta"!

I have Thai Kitchen and Suzi Wan noodles in my kitchen atm. Like to buy rice noodles also.

Never buy the small one packet ones with flavour because I don´t like the flavours and being a vegetarian household not much option.

I use them for spring rolls (inside and to place underneath the rolls). With Miso soup. Padthai with egg, tofu, tahini rather than peanuts and vegetables

I use Sharwoods usually - medium thickness, stir-fried with a little garlic, virtually minced cabbage, celery, spring onion and, if I have it, cooked chicken. Carrots would be nice too, but DS1 can't have them. I chop the veg really small so that they stick to the noodles!
