“My daughter loves cheese but to avoid giving her too much like most of the prepackaged mac and cheeses have, I can control how much she gets. I think this recipe has just the right amount, and it is a good way to sneak in other veggies if your child doesnt like them yet. My daughter loves broccoli and carrots but if you need to hide them for your child; use an orange cheddar cheese which may camouflage them a bit. This is a good base recipe to play with and make it work for you by adding or changing what fits for your child. We always whip this up together so measurements are an estimate. I also use organic foods for her but conventional can work too. Note that this will not be an overly gooey mac and cheese; just enough to give it flavor.”
