Disclosure: I have partnered with YMC and Annie’s and have received compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.
Now that back to school is in full swing and the work days are quite hectic there are days that we get home from school and I just don’t have the energy to cook a full blown dinner. And trying to whip up a quick healthy meal that I feel good about giving to my kids doesn’t come easy, in comes Annie’s Yummier Than Ever Mac and Cheese (in classic cheddar).
My kids are major Mac and Cheese fans. I try to make a batch from scratch but this is a time consuming process and on busy days just won’t work.
The best part about making Annie’s Mac and Cheese is that my kiddos jump right in to help. They love the whole process, boiling and salting the water, pouring the noodles in, pouring the cheesy mix and incorporating all the ingredients together. And of course the best part, we get to eat together and spend more time connecting than me in the kitchen while the kids are in their playroom.
It feels good that Annie’s tastes just as good as a homemade version, being 80% organic without any artificial flavours, synthetic colours or preservatives.
Whether you are on a budget and need to prioritize your organic purchase Annie’s Yummier than Ever Mac and Cheese is a great option. Its affordable and I feel good they are eating something that is sourced from natural organic ingredients.
Not only is it good for the kiddos to eat, the improved recipe tastes cheesier, the texture is creamy and the noodles are made with wheat so you’re getting some fiber in the kiddos, can we say mom win.
