Will eat noodles....for Sponge Bob

Many people know that Adam is probably the pickiest eater in the world. He didn't start out that way- actually he used to eat everything we put in front of him. Then, the stomach flu season came....and it seemed that he had a bout of it every two weeks. So, now he's a picky eater. One thing Adam does not like is noodles. We haven't been able to get them near the fork without a battle. Then I saw it....Kraft makes Sponge Bob Mac and Cheese! I thought, even if Adam won't eat it, Colin will. I made them up the other night, and Adam readily put them on his fork and ate them- one character at a time. Apparently, the marketing gimmics do work! (well, sometimes...)

This post brings back memories of my favorite character-based food item: Strawberry Shortcake cereal. It was basically strawberry flavored cocoa puffs...but they were the bomb! We tried Cabbage Patch Cereal when it first came out...I begged my mom to buy a box promising I'd eat it all. We got home and poured a bowl...crap. Edible crap. What a disappointment! Back to Strawberry Shortcake we went! Mmmmmm- strawberry!

Dude, the fun shaped macaroni is so much better! The shapes allow for excellent cheese absorbtion & a very high cheese to noodle ratio. The only downer is that they take twice as long to cook & there is not as many noodles as the regular style. fia loves the spiderman ones the best. Also, spongebob cheese-its are way better! Not sure why....maybe the smaller sized cracker
