Sometimes, getting kids to eat their veggies is a battle. If you have a child who’s less than thrilled to eat his veggies, you may have to get sneaky! This yummy mac and cheese recipe hides three whole cups of butternut squash. The butternut squash blends right in with the cheddar cheese, literally, so grab your blender!
Butternut squash is a great source of vitamins A and C and a good source of fiber, potassium, magnesium, and manganese. It’s fat-free, cholesterol-free, and sodium-free to boot. But your child doesn’t need to know any of that… all he’ll know is he’s eating cheesy, gooey mac and cheese!
