Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
| 1 min read
Encourage healthy eating habits in your children by finding new ways to sneak in healthy foods into a meal, such as fruits and vegetables that kids tend not to eat. Adding substitutes to your mac and cheese like butternut squash can offer the same texture and homey flavor as pasta with better nutrition, fewer calories and carbs.
It takes seven to 10 attempts to acquire a taste for a food. With kids, it’s a great idea to make those “tries” count with recipes that are disguised as something they would otherwise enjoy like this one. This balanced meal offers vitamins A, C, E, B6 and folate along with minerals including magnesium and potassium, while still having the same great mac and cheese taste.
