My kids are picky eaters. So when Kidfresh contacted me and asked me if I wanted to try out their healthy frozen meals, I was game. My oldest child, Ben, started being picky at 18 months of age. Suddenly I found myself serving way to many versions of Macaroni and Cheese to him (something that my mother NEVER served my brother and I growing up). I would puree veggies and hide them in the M & C (which is what the cool kids call it). But I don’t always have time to make a cheese sauce, steam veggies and puree them and pasta. While I’m pretty careful what brands I give him — most macaroni and cheeses on the market aren’t that great for kids (with tons of sodium and ingredients I can’t pronounce), I hadn’t found an easy frozen brand that I could keep on hand for those nights when I didn’t have time to cook (hey, it happens).
Enter Kidfresh Foods. I’ve wanted to try their kid meals for a while and excited we finally got a chance. We sampled three of their meals; Rainbow Rice and Chicken, Wagon Wheels Mac + Cheese, and Muy Cheese Quesadillas.
Because my children LOVE Macaroni and Cheese so much, I decided to serve it to them last. My kids will eat rice, but they usually prefer pasta, so I was really surprised when they went nuts over the Rainbow Rice and Chicken. My oldest child doesn’t like to eat chicken or meat, but he really liked this dish (maybe I didn’t tell that there was chicken in it – and he didn’t notice it).
Next I cut up the quesadillas and served them. They were a bigger hit. Then I served the Macaroni and Cheese and they nearly fell out of their seats. Instant hit!
Then, we tried Kidfresh’s newest product, Super Duper Chicken Nuggets to try.
