My son is a very good eater. He’s always willing to try new foods and loves to eat his vegetables. But….it wasn’t always this way.
There was a period of time when he would only eat about 4 different foods. As frustrating as it was, we kept offering him new foods and encouraging him to try different things.
It took a lot of coaxing but eventually, one day, he just decided to expand his menu. Now, he loves things like enchiladas, short ribs, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
One thing, though, has always remained constant. He loves chicken nuggets. He loved them during his picky phase and he still loves them today.
BackBake when he was a picky eater, I started making these homemade chicken nuggets. They quickly became a family favorite. They are tender and flavorful and use all real ingredients.
Another thing that has remained constant is my son’s love of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. This was one of the 4 things he would eat then and he still loves it today.
Kraft Mac & Cheese is an iconic brand that has been a staple on American tables since 1937, and it’s been a big part of my family dinners for as long as I can remember. It’s a brand that I grew up with, and something I can always count on my family loving. Kraft Mac & Cheese is always on my grocery list.
Imagine how thrilled I was to find out that for the past three months, Kraft has been conducting the world’s largest…and quietest…“blind taste test.” They’ve been selling their new recipe, and my family didn’t even notice!
Seriously, no one in my house realized that the mac & cheese they’ve loved changed their recipe. Gone are the artificial flavors, preservatives and dyes.
Now that the news is out, Kraft is thanking its fans for participating. They’ll be surprising thousands of consumers with thank you gifts, including free product, celebratory T-shirts and even an oversized macaroni-inspired body pillow.
I encourage you to share this great news on Twitter with the hashtag #didntnotice or on the Kraft Mac & Cheese Facebook page you may receive a thank you gift!and you’ll be entered to win these fun prizes!
Kraft Macaroni & Cheese goes great with my easy, baked chicken nuggets. This wholesome meal is any kid’s dream. And, as a mom, I can feel good about serving it to him.
It’s a smart choice for a balanced meal. And the entire meal can be made in under 30 minutes.
