Unlike other holidays, Thanksgiving can be tough on kids with expectations of sitting still, hugs from distant relatives and quirky food, like green bean casseroles, and candied yams, that is only served once a year…and oh yea, no presents.With *75% of American families claiming to have at least one picky eater at home, Kraft Mac & Cheese is one thing parents can rely on to please their picky eaters.

“We want to give parents a moment of relief during the Thanksgiving stress,” says Michelle St Jacques of Kraft Heinz, “Kraft Mac & Cheese is not only guaranteed to get a smile at the table from your kids but also allows the parents to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner and the company of family and friends…and maybe a glass of wine.”
