Basically, all my daughter will eat right now is boxed macaroni and cheese. She gets the boxes out of our pantry almost every day and asks for it. The only vegetable she will eat right now is peas and I wanted to give her some variety. I haven't tried other vegetables yet, but I'm sure they would work.
