Kraft sneaks veggies into its Mac & Cheese
One cup of the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese with cauliflower, called “Veggie Pasta” on the box when sold in the United States, has only a half serving of vegetables in it. In order to get the equivalent of one serving of cauliflower (a serving of cauliflower being one-half cup), a child needs to eat two cups of mac & cheese. That’s a lot of mac & cheese. In fact, it’s two full servings. So in order to get kids to eat a serving of hidden vegetables, a parent would need to double up on the serving of processed grains (not even whole grains at that).
