Best Vegetable Dips for Kids

Image placeholder title

On my never-ending quest to get my girls to eat well, I've been on the hunt for veggie dips. Nutrition experts tell me time and again to feed them veggies and dip when they are ravenous . Here are my ideas for dip. The idea is, give them veggies and dip to munch as you prepare the main meal.



Mini Pepper Boats. From Parents Magazine.

Directions:
1. Halve mini sweet peppers.
2. Fill with ranch dressing.
3. Add broken pretzel sticks for oars.

Parenting.com takes it a step further and recommends seven store-bought dips for parents to use. I think stocking up on these will make veggie eating a fun experiment.
