McDonald's is currently testing the idea of offering a mac and cheese option for kids. Although macaroni is a beloved comfort food, the dish has remained absent from most fast fast menus. Now McDonald's is testing out the cheesy entree as a healthy option for kids.

At select locations in Ohio, McDonald's is giving customers the opportunity to order mac and cheese a-la-cart or as part of a Happy Meal.The dish costs $1.75 and clocks in at about 190 calories per serving. Other details about how the dish will be prepared are shrouded in mystery as the product is still in the early stages of testing.

While there is no word on whether McDonald's will make its mac and cheese option a menu staple, the dish could serve as a healthy alternative to some of its other signature products.
