homemade mac and cheese kids lunch

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

  • Homemade macaroni and cheese (see below for recipe)
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Kidney beans
  • Strawberries


Easy Mac and Cheese


  • 16oz box of uncooked macaroni or pasta of choice (here I used penne)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 2 1/2 T flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cups milk


  1. Make macaroni to package directions.
  2. Make a roux with flour and butter.  Melt butter in a pan over low heat and whisk in flour until combined.
  3. Add milk and whisk until smooth.
  4. Take off heat, add cheese and mix.  Pour over cooked pasta.

Tada!  That’s it.  Simple and delicious. I definitely recommend packing a fruit and/or veggie with this lunch as I do with all my lunches:)
