Zucchini Noodles For Healthy Kids

Zucchini noodles are long and delicate and will help to curb the craving for traditional wheat pasta, especially when paired with your sauce of choice and the options are endless.  Zucchini is packed with nutrients to support healthy kids including the B vitamins to support energy metabolism, Vitamins C and A, potassium, folate, and fibre.


  • 4 zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • Pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil, for frying


  1. Use a spiralizer to make the spaghetti or cut slices lengthways using a vegetable peeler or mandolin, stopping when you reach the seeds.  Turn the zucchini over and continue to peel discarding the seeds. 
  2. Slice the zucchini into thin strips to look like spaghetti.
  3. In a pan over a medium heat, add olive oil and sauté zucchini for 1 or 2 minutes.
  4. Add water and cook until zucchini has softened and season with sea salt, pepper and lemon juice.
  5. Serve with basil pesto, Bolognese or favourite sauce.

Serves: 4

Children’s Health Tip: 

It’s worthwhile investing in a spiralizer.  Healthy Kids are more likely to eat food they prepare and making veggie noodles is great fun.
