Powdered cheese, macaroni, butter, and milk combine to make up my favorite food. Macaroni and cheese can go with just about any meal, which allows me to enjoy it often. Hamburgers, chicken, even pork chops; macaroni and cheese goes well with all of them. Because of this adaptability and because of its easy preparation and convenience, macaroni and cheese has become my food of choice.

Every time I feast on a hearty bowl of macaroni and cheese, I am reminded of the summers of my youth. It was then that my mother allowed me to help her with the preparation of my macaroni and cheese. I soon discovered that macaroni and cheese is one of the easiest of foods to prepare. After bringing water to a boil, place macaroni in and wait until it is at your desired consistency. Once that is done you strain the noodles; place them back in the pot, then mix in cheese, butter and milk. Now the only thing left to do is enjoy the meal that you just prepared.

Besides the convenience to make macaroni and cheese, this food is economically convenient because it will not lighten your wallet. There are exceptions to this, of course, but for the most part it will cost you about a dollar for a box, and you then have an entire meal. This inexpensiveness is extremely convenient, especially for the college student like myself. I personally have a steady supply of this cheesy delight in my room at all times…...

Maggi Term Paper

...launched ‘Maggi Macaroni’ in July 1997. According to analysts,Maggi Macaroni was launched partly to deal with the growing popularity of competingnoodles brand Top Ramen. Maggi Macaroni was made available in three flavors, Tomato,Chicken, and Masala. The company expected to repeat the success of Maggi noodles withMaggi Macaroni. As with most of its product launches, Maggi Macaroni’s launch was backedby a multi-media advertisement campaign including radio, television, outdoors and printmedia with the tagline, ‘Tum Roz Baby.The product’s pricing, however, proved to be a major hurdle. A 75-gm Maggi Macaroni packwas priced at Rs 11, while a 100-gm noodles pack was available at Rs 9. According toanalysts, Nestlé failed to justify this price-value anomaly to customers, who failed to see anynoted value addition in Maggi Macaroni (packaging and flavor variants were similar to thoseof Maggi noodles). In addition, customers failed to see any significant difference betweenMaggi Macaroni and the much cheaper macaroni that was sold by the unorganized sectorplayers.

Behaviour Change Project

...because I have a bad habit of not eating as well as I should. Although I usually do not eat fast food, I eat a lot of carbs. I was raised in an Italian family so macaroni and pizza are my two worst enemies. I figured that if I used this project to get rid of my bad eating habits, I would have an easier time eating healthy after this class ends. Before starting the project I realized that there will be challenges, but this project was not meant to be simple. If behavior change was simple, then anyone would be able to change behavior whenever they wanted to. In order to translate my health goals into target behaviors I realized that I had to sit and analyze my diet so I can see exactly which of my eating habits I should do away with. Firstly, I usually drink a glass of milk before bed every night. I did some reading online and learned that humans are the only species that drink the milk of another animal and drink any sort of milk after infancy. I also learned that the milk in the grocery store is full of hormones and other toxins. Therefore I decided that it would probably be a good idea to stop drinking milk. Another bad eating habit that I have is that I eat a lot of carbohydrates, especially in the form of macaroni. Since I come from a very Italian family, macaroni has always been a staple of my diet. However, the macaroni at home was handmade which cuts out all the additives and processing that the pasta from the super market has. When I started attending Sacred Heart,......

Understanding Food Labels

...August 20, 2013 Carlene Graham Understanding Food Labels According to the video “The Food Label and You” the 5/20 Rule is a guideline to the percentage of daily nutrients your body needs. For good nutrients such as calcium, fiber and vitamins you want the daily percentage to be closer to 20%. For bad nutrients such as oils, sodium, fat and carbs you want the daily percentage to be closer to 5%. Here is an example from my pantry. I chose to use Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. These daily percentages are using the prepared figures. Total Fat 29% Sodium 30% Carbs 16% Vitamin A 15% Calcium 15% Fiber 4% Once I looked at these daily percentages and took into account the 5/20 rule, I noticed that there are some very unhealthy nutrients in Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. I noticed that the total fat is way too high for just one item and for one serving. With the sodium combined with the total fat you would really have to watch what you ate with the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. A good source of nutrient that is found in Kraft Macaroni and Cheese would be Vitamin A as well as having a good source of calcium. The six key elements that I found after reading the article “How to Understand Nutritional Food Labels” would first be the serving size and the servings per package. Serving sizes determines the amount of calories that will be taken in with a certain amount while a serving per package means if you used the whole package.

Budget Strategy of Kraft Food

...cheese market in the U.S. and was the third largest dairy company in the United States after National Dairy and Borden. In 1930, the company also began operating in Australia following a merger with Fred Walker & Co. After National Dairy acquisition of Kraft-Phenix At the time of the acquisition in 1930, National Dairy had sales of $315 million compared with $85 million for Kraft Phenix. National Dairy management ran the combined business. Following the Kraft-Phenix acquisition, the firm continued to be called National Dairy until 1969 when it changed its name to Kraftco. Historically, all of the firm's sales came from dairy products. However, the firm's product lines began to diversify away from dairy products to caramel candies, macaroni and cheese dinners and margarines. From the 1950s onward, the firm began to move away from low value added commodity dairy products, such as fluid milk. This trend would continue for the firm, through neglect and divestiture, until the primary remaining dairy product produced by the firm would be cheese. As a result, the modern history of the firm emphasizes the cheese history. In 1933, the company began marketing by radio sponsorship. In 1935, the Sealtest brand of ice cream was launched as a unified national brand to replace the firm's numerous regional brands. During World War II, the company sent four million pounds of cheese to Britain weekly. Product development and advertising helped the......
