Let's face it, if we gave our kids the option, they'd probably eat mac and cheese for every meal. We want to make our children happy, but not at the expense of feeding them unhealthy food, right? Well, with this mac and cheese, everyone can be happy. This recipe uses real ingredients like milk, peas, brown rice pasta and REAL cheese -- not the bright orange powder that comes in a packet. The best part it is it doesn't take much longer to prepare than the boxed varieties. Now that's what you call a win-win!
