In a world filled with sugar and lollipops and with the childhood obesity epidemic it is more important than every to feed our kids good wholesome foods, which brings me to my son. My son David is four and very picky! We have always tried our best to feed him well, we stick to fresh ingredients and meals filled with whole grains and veggies and try to restrict eating out to only a few times a year! The older my son gets the harder it is to keep finding creative ways to introduce healthy foods to him because…well..he is just too wise to our tricky ways! So when influesnter sent me the Annie’s organic mac and cheese to try out the first person I thought of was David.
While I do cook for my family just about every night, there are some nights that are just too hectic and I have to throw something together for him while trying to keep in mind the health factor. I was sent the Annie’s microwaveable mac and cheese in the while cheddar flavor and when one of those busy nights rolled around I knew just what to feed him. While I’m easier to please I knew that the best judge would be him. I was a little nervous about this however because these microwaveable cups are comparable to the Kraft easy macs but my mind was put at ease when I read the ingredients. Organic made pasta and real cheese! Perfect!
So I served David his Annie’s Mac and cheese and instantly got his seal of approval. He literally ate the whole thing up in the matter of minutes (also letting my husband and I take a bite!) and I was impressed. It didn’t taste like how I imagined microwaveable mac and cheese would, it was creamy and didn’t taste like overly processed cheese, so it gets the moms seal of approval too.
While I will continue to make homemade wholesome meals it is nice to have another option for those lazy nights, an option that I feel less guilty about and that my pickiest of eaters loves too!
