The girls absolutely loved this paella recipe. You would think that sea food is a complete no no for young children but my 3 year old twins and 6 year had clean bowls at the end of the meal and it is definitely going to have a regular spot in our meals. I have served a variation of this for a few years without the seafood so I thought I would try something a little more authentic. I bought a pack of mixed seafood where the shells had already been removed. This definitely made it more palatable – both for me to cook and the girls to eat.
