HOW CAN I MAKE MY OWN NOODLE STATION?
1 – Choose what ingredients you would like, it is important to have noodles, a broth, vegetables and some protein options. Dumplings are an exciting addition to this.
3 – Cook each of your ingredients and place them in separate bowls on your serving bench
4 – Make sure you have serving spoons for each of the pots
5 – Everyone takes a bowl and ‘makes’ their own noodles

Many home cooks have used them to showcase desserts, breakfast meals and even special occasion buffet meals for guests.
The mum who posted photos of the noodle station said it is great because her three-year-old feels like he is helping with dinner when he picks his own ingredients for his bowl.
‘He loves to help, but I struggle with being patient enough,’ she said.
‘I am a grumpy pregnant woman too, which doesn’t help,’ she said.
