Back to basics tip #12: If your child is like mine, she has her favorite foods. A staple food for Kaye is macaroni and cheese. To make it healthier, I add puree squash to it. Try it next time. My kids prefer it with the squash now. I know there are recipe books that incorporates vegetable purees into meals to make it healthier, one of which I own called Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld.
1 box Kraft macaroni and cheese
3 tablespoons butter, can be substituted with olive oil
2 jars of #2 (4 ounce) squash baby food
- Prepare macaroni and cheese as directed on the box.
- Add the powder cheese, butter and squash to the macaroni. Exclude the milk.
