Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with Veggie Mobile

This veggie car is so fun! It will entice your kids to eat more vegetables!

First we made the axle and wheels by using carrots and olives. We attached them to each other with a half a toothpick placed in each end of the carrot then slipped on an olive.

Then we cut the cucumber in half for the body of the car. We placed the cucumber cut side down on top of the carrots.

Cut the small tomato in half and place it on top of the cucumber to represent the driver.

Create a veggie mobile to entice your kids to eat more vegetables.

We then added a half of a small orange to create a balanced meal which included Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, vegetables and fruit.

This is the perfect meal to start empowering your kids to cook. The directions are simple and straight-forward. The cooking time is minimal to keep kids attention.

    What a cute idea. Although my kids are grown they still love Kraft Mac & Cheese. Heck even I do! It’s great that they are trying to make it a better product.

    A blind taste test? I had no idea and I know that we have had some Kraft macaroni and cheese since the change. Wow! I’m so glad they made a positive change. I can’t wait to try some more “knowing” about the changes they have made to improve their ingredients.
