Toddler Meal Idea - Macaroni and Cheese


One of Lil' C' s favorite food is macaroni and cheese. I try not to use the boxed ready made ones because I think there's a lot of artificial coloring in the boxed mix. So I try to make my own. It's actually very simple. Just boil some pasta (the fancier the shape, the better) & while boiling, add in some peas & corn to cook together. Then drain the water & add cheese (amount of cheese depends on how cheesy your child likes) & 1-2 tablespoon of milk to the macaroni & mix together.
Serve in a little turkey roll house with some "bear cheese" & "carrot sun" and it's another fun meal for a happy kid.
