The beauty of dips – you can dip vegetables!

Children can never eat too many vegetables.

They provide the vitamins and minerals needed to support overall health.The Beauty of Dips.

Carrot batons are an obvious vegetable to dip but try to aim for a variety – the more colours the better.

  • Dips are a great way of encouraging children to eat vegetables.
  • Dips can also encourage children to try new things
  • They are so quick and easy to make.
  • Children can easily make them.
  • Most dips will last a few days in a fridge.
  • They are perfect for a mid morning or after school snack.

Children often enjoy the novelty of using a little bowl for their dip. Most children find it fun to dip their food into something.

Why not let your children make their own lunch? They can spread hummus or any other dip onto a tortilla wrap with a spoon and then add pre-cut vegetables such as carrots or cucumber before rolling up their healthy and fun to make meal. A similar snack can be made using pitta bread as a pocket. Or how about spreading a dip onto rice cakes or apples?The Beauty of Dips - Guacamole Dip

There are so many possibilities for using as a dip from things such as peanut butter or pureed fruits/vegetables to plain yogurt or cream cheese.

The best way can often be for children to be involved in making their own.

Here is a list of fun and easy to make dips:
