I would love to tell you that both of my children are fabulous, healthy eaters. Unfortunately, dinnertime can be a battle. As any good Mom, I want to make sure that my children are offered whole grains, vegetables and fruits several times throughout the day. While they love most fruits, I have been unsuccessful in getting them to eat most vegetables. Spinach, celery and corn is about the extent of their repetoire so I am constantly trying to find ways to introduce more vitamins into their diets.
One thing they love? KRAFT macaroni and cheese. Every time. So, when I learned that KRAFT produced a Macaroni and Cheese Veggie Pasta, I couldn’t wait to make the switch! About the product:
“New KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Veggie Pasta has the great taste of KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese that kids and adults love, now with a half serving of vegetables* per one cup of product. KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Veggie Pasta can be enjoyed in two flavors – Original and Three Cheese. Prepare creamy cheese sauce mix and pour over steaming noodles to experience the classic taste of original KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese the whole family will love.
*The equivalent of a 1/2 serving (1/4 cup) of cauliflower per cup of product. USDA MyPyramid.gov recommends 2 1/2 cups (5 servings) per day for a 2,000-calorie diet.”
Preparing the veggie pasta was no different and the finished product looked and smelled just like original version as well. But would the kids be able to tell the difference? Would they sniff out the hidden vegetables and reject the pasta?
In fact, they loved it and requested seconds as per the usual reaction to KRAFT macaroni and cheese dinners. I am so pleased that I can rest assured that my girls will get a 1/2 serving of veggies with no complaints and little effort on my part. We will definitely be purchasing KRAFT Macaroni and Cheese Veggie Pasta again!
