QUINOA MAC N CHEESE

Tots to Teens Magazine is a great FREE magazine, focusing on all things relating to kids, from baby to school ages.  It’s available at most Kindy’s, preschools and school’s around New Zealand.  Chocka block full of interesting and helpful info, and now with a recipe page!  I’m lucky enough to have a regular page sharing some of my favourite recipe’s based on a particular theme each issue.  Last issue was Quinoa.

This is a favourite in our family, the kids love it and it’s so easy to make:
