Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with a tossed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing, such as Italian or Ranch.
Use Whole Grains
A whole grain is the entire edible part of any grain, such as wheat, corn, oats or rice. Whole grains have more fiber than refined grains and should make up at least half of your daily grain intake.
