My Kid Doesn’t Know It, but I Hide Veggies In the Mac & Cheese! (Giveaway)

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

As much as I have tried, I have a hard time getting my family to eat vegetables. Maybe it’s because of the color, some of them I’m sure it’s because of the taste or maybe it’s just some anomaly that I have no control over. I try and ‘dress’ them up as much as I can, with sauces and spices. The thing is – they still know they’re veggies, and because they ‘see’ them, it doesn’t matter how good they might taste, they pick and poke and fuss about them. My family could definitely have coined the words from a TV commercial that say “Why do vegetables have to taste so ….vegetable-ly?”

Last night I made the new Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Veggie Pasta Dinner. I decided we all needed some veggies for dinner. Making the Veggie Pasta Dinner is just like making any other box of Kraft’s Mac & Cheese, the instructions are the same. What is different about it is that each serving (1 cup) has a half serving of vegetables in it.

In this case the vegetable ‘hidden’ in the product is cauliflower. I do have to say that I noticed the ‘scent’ of the cauliflower while cooking it; well more specifically while draining the water from the pot. Once I served it, my daughter did say she noticed that it tasted just bit different on initial contact with her tongue, but once she started chewing it was just like regular Mac & Cheese.

Regardless, both boxes I made of the Original Flavor (it also comes in a three cheese variety) were eaten. For this one moment, I felt like a great mom! I think I’m going to serve the Kraft Veggie Pasta Dinner whenever I feel like we have vegetable deficit in our diet!

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Veggie Pasta retails for about $1.49 a box which when prepared makes two 1 cup servings. If you are interested in trying it out you can PRINT a coupon for 75¢ off your next box of Kraft Veggie Pasta Dinner.

Disclosure: I was provided with samples of the New Kraft Mac & Cheese veggie pasta for the purpose of my review. Kraft will be providing the winner with the prize.

One reader will win 4 boxes of the new Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Veggie Pasta Dinner (two of each variety – Original & Three Cheese) to try with their family!
