Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese

The classic parental nightmare: getting your little ones to munch on more veggies. This season, Elle Penner, our Registered Dietitian has got a trick up her sleeve with butternut squash mac & cheese. Sure it’s a little sneaky but one serving of this creamy, butter-nutty dish will meet your daily vitamin A needs. It’s high in protein, great for vegetarians and kid-approved. Hurry and test it out before butternut squash season is over!
