Mac and Cheese Fun with the Kids in the Kitchen!
While we love homemade mac and cheese, some days are just boxed mac and cheese days, ya know? We recently discovered Horizon Classic Mac; since it has 10 grams of protein and is made with organic pasta and cheese, it makes for a quick kids’ meal that I can feel good serving them. But I do like to add stuff to our mac and cheese to make it a more balanced – or even just more FUN – meal. Check out these ideas for fun mac and cheese add-ins…

Kids in the Kitchen – 13 Fun Mac and Cheese Add-Ins
- Canned Tuna
- Cut Up Hot Dogs
- Crumbled Bacon
- Steamed Broccoli
- Steamed Peas
- Steamed Carrot Coins
- Diced or Stewed Tomatoes
- Horizon Organic Cheddar Cheese Shreds
- Horizon Cheddar Sandwich Crackers
- Horizon Original Snack Crackers
My cracker-loving kids got a kick out of the cow-shaped Horizon Snack Crackers on top of their mac and cheese. And they loved the crunch it gave their creamy macaroni, too; almost like cripsy breadcrumbs.
Have a kiddo that’s gluten-sensitive or -intolerant? Horizon just came out with a boxed Gluten-Free Macaroni and White Cheddar Cheese that you should give a try, too. It would be perfect with one of the meats or veggies added in.
