Mac and Cheese

Over the last month, my little guy has become a picky eater. I keep giving him vegetables, and after about 3 bites, he's over it. Today I tried something different. I bought organic macaroni and cheese (of course...he loves mac and cheese) and I mixed in a jar of organic sweet potato baby food. And he ate all of it! I thought I'd share this with you all in case one of you had a picky eater as well!

I got Annie's Homegrown Bunny Pasta-the noodles are adorable shapes of bunnies and carrots and it's easy for him to pick the noodles up!

I mixed in Earth's Best Organic Sweet Potatoes. (I usually make his baby food, but in this case jarred has a better consistency.) I cooked the noodles, added the milk and cheese, but nixed the butter. Then I just mixed the sweet potatoes right in!

And hellooooo...he ate them!!!!

Sure, we had a orange mess to clean up....but totally worth it!!!
