Mac and cheese

Does anyone have any mac and cheese recipes that I can hide veggies in? My son loves mac and cheese but not veggies.

  • u could also puree cooked carrots and use white cheese, that way it doesnt get too orange...your best be is to just experiment on your own instead of following recipes. also, my older son is super picky, but he will eat broccoli if its cut up into small pieces and mixed into mac and cheese (be sure to steam the broccoli first!).

  • Instead of hiding the food, you are better off just making him eat his veggies......he'll get used to it and develop a taste for them as time goes on...

  • I don't hide veggies. He should learn to eat healthy foods, hiding vegetables teaches nothing ... well, aside from poor eating habits.
    I suppose if you chose to, you could "hide" veggies in any old mac and cheese.

  • I heard you could puree cauliflower in the blender after steaming it, and then mix it in with the cheese sauce before adding to the noodles.

  • Better off to just offer them. My son hated broccoli and refused to eat it. After 3 months of offering it over and over...well he loves broccoli now. (: He actually will order it when we eat out.

  • My son is 14 yrs old, he is NOT going to eat them just because I keep offering them to him. And before anyone says anything, he WILL starve if I just don't feed him.
