    I agree! It's all WAY to high in fat, cal, carbs, sodium. However, I figure since my kids love mac n cheese and I hate the hefty price tag, I opted to attempt a low fat, more healthy recipe using the same measurements to feed my family of 5. It turned out pretty good.
    Use: low fat cream cheese, low fat cheddar cheese, and sea salt
