If your children are like mine vegetables are a tough sell. This is why I devised veggie mac and cheese. It is not a new version but it is my version. It is loved by my young sons and picky eating husband. This dish is a great alternative because it incorporates three food groups: dairy, whole grains, and vegetables. I like this recipe because it is orange so my littlest son does not realize it has vegetables in it. My son gets not only dairy but, a vegetable he may not otherwise eat.
