Mac n' Cheese, Safer Please
Despite being somewhat lactose-intolerant, I have a weakness for the occasional Kraft blue-box of Macaroni & Cheese. It's fast, it's easy, and you can make it with soy milk even though it makes it taste a little funky. But I now hear that Europe has a better version of this American dish than we do in the States. The European version has no artificial colors or chemical sweeteners (aspartame, anyone?) because European food standards require a warning label for products that contain them.
The dangers of some of the ingredients in the US version were apparently covered in a book called The Unhealthy Truth. Now that the word's out, MomsRising.org is encouraging people to e-mail their Congressional representatives to get the European version on US store shelves. No word on whether the eye-catching box will change as well: in Canada it's called "Kraft Dinner."
