The easiest (and the cheesiest) recipes are typically the best ones to get your children to eat. In fact, these are also the types of recipes that get them in the kitchen and actually help you out! Although easy to cook, this doesn’t mean, of course, that the nourishment aspect should be sacrificed. There are a significant number of meals that can be easily consumed by children while still contributing the right amount of nutrients needed according to the Food Pyramid. One good example is this yummy mac n cheese, which can be put together in just minutes and also fed to or consumed easily by a child. Serve this with a delicious glass of Lactum 3+ or 6+ to help ensure 100% nourishment*.
Mommy tip: You may opt to add ham, bacon, or even cauliflower and peas for a healthy mix.
1. Boil the pasta with a tablespoon of salt in a pot over high heat for about 8 minutes.
2. Warm 1 cup of milk in the saucepan over medium heat. Whisk together ½ cup of milk and 3 tablespoons of flour in a bowl until smooth. When the milk in the pan is hot enough (starts to show steam), whisk in your milk-and-flour mixture. Continue whisking for about 3-4 minutes.
3. Mix handfuls of cheese into the milk on a pan in low heat. Stir in the salt and mustard, and keep stirring until cheese is melted. Adjust the taste according to your child’s liking. Remove the sauce from heat.
4. Combine the pasta and cheese sauce in a large serving bowl. Add the extra add-ins your child enjoys like ham, bacon or add some veggies for extra nourishment.
