It’s Official: Kraft Mac & Cheese Is Approved for Breakfast
Kraft Removes “Dinner” from Iconic Blue Box for the First Time Ever
PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–These last few months have not been easy, and the struggle is real for parents with kids who are picky eaters. It’s hard to find a food that their kids will eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner – except for Kraft Mac & Cheese. In fact, 56% of parents have served their kids Mac & Cheese for breakfast more often during COVID-19 related state lockdowns than previous months.*
It’s all about the small parenting wins these days and serving Kraft Mac & Cheese as part of a balanced breakfast is a sure-fire way to start the day off with a smile. Kids are full and far less cranky, while parents can peacefully work from home, teach, and do the millions of other tasks required of them. So for the first time, Kraft is replacing “dinner” with “breakfast” on their iconic blue box of macaroni & cheese because it’s acceptable to enjoy deliciously cheesy Kraft Mac & Cheese for breakfast – or any time of day.
“As a brand loved by the entire family, we’ve learned Kraft Mac & Cheese isn’t just for dinner,” says Kelsey Cooperstein of Kraft Heinz, “A Kraft Mac & Cheese breakfast is a win-win for families at a time when they need all the wins they can get.”
Starting today through August 7, Kraft is giving away a limited-edition Kraft Mac & Cheese “Breakfast Box.” Each box includes a placemat for kids to color while the mac & cheese is being prepared, a magnet with breakfast topping suggestions, like crumbled sausage, bacon or scrambled eggs, a mug for serving and – of course – the original Kraft Mac & Cheese with special “Breakfast” packaging.
To enter for a chance to win a breakfast box, simply use #KMCforBreakfast and #Sweepstakes on Twitter and a reply will be automatically sent with a direct link to see if you are a winner, or you can enter for the chance to win at the microsite here: https://mac-n-cheese-for-breakfast.fooji.com. And, because breakfast is important to everyone, Kraft Mac & Cheese will donate 10 boxes to Feed the Children, a leading global hunger relief organization, for every #KMCforBreakfast on Twitter up to 1 million boxes.
