Cheesy Chicken Casserole

Babies love cheese! It’s easy to pick up, soft and has tons of flavor. Nutritional yeast is a pretty cool ingredient that comes in a flakey form which also happens to have a cheesy flavor. You can sprinkle it into casseroles, soup, or sauces to add tons of nutrients and cheese flavor. In this dish, I’ve added it along with Colby cheese, so that the kids will get the protein and fat from a little cheese, plus the vitamins and nutrients from the nutritional yeast.
