Carrot purée is a wonderful addition to whole wheat based white sauce, as it makes it creamier and colourful too. Add to it some cheese and a dash of pepper, and you have a perfect base that kids will love. Throw some macaroni, seasonings and herbs into this creamy sauce, and there you have a yummy treat that kids will devour willingly. The Macaroni in Cheesy Carrot Sauce, prepared as per the given specifications, will stay nice and tasty in the tiffin box for at least 4 hours. Also pack Orange and Tutti Frutti Loaf ( Tiffin Treats for Kids ) in another tiffin, your kid will just love this double treat.
