Healthy Alternatives to French Fries


Planning your holiday menu? We've got a healthy recipe for your kids to share. We know your kids love french fries (but the MacDonald's kind is 90% fat and super high in calories). We also know it's a project to get them to eat their veggies. What if you could turn carrots into fries? Genius eh? Combine the two and you and kids get the best of both worlds! You will feel great knowing you are giving them something good for them and they will love these tasty dipable veggies.
