Eating healthfully and making foods the whole family will love can be a challenge to say the very least. But it's not impossible! Take our Baked Macaroni and Cheese for example. Everyone loves Mac & Cheese, and we've made it healthy with a few simple tweaks. The cheesy sauce is made with low-fat milk. Low-fat cottage cheese is added to the sauce to give a boost of flavor and texture making it less necessary to add loads of full-fat cheddar. And now the best part - we've added a middle layer of frozen spinach so everyone can get their veggies.
