What is more comforting than a bowl of mac & cheese? When cooked properly mac & cheese can be a nutrient-dense dish, fit for kids and adults, too. So naturally, I set out to find a from-scratch recipe that would provide him with the most nutrients possible. Before you start telling me how mac & cheese can’t possibly be healthy, think again. Fats are an essential macro-nutrient fr the body but particularly for a developing brain, and your child’s brain could be lacking this important nutrient.   Fats are the precursor to hormones and are good for heart health.

So it is important to source good ingredients, you can read here my post on what Real Food is with a simple chart to decode it.
