Fun snacks for kids

Kids love to have fun, so why not make the dreaded mealtime more fun?

Dip - Kids love to doubt about it. It is my experience that if you give a child dip with anything, they will eat it. Here are some awesome recipes for healthy, yummy dips

Kabobs - With a little wooden stick you can turn any meal into a kabob. It's fun, different, and your kids will love it. If  your meal doesn't work on the kabob, try using a toothpick. They are fun to eat with too.

Quesadillas - You can hide almost anything inside a quesadilla and your kids will eat it. My favorite is sweet potato, black beans and carrots. Not all together of course, but just one petit serving with cheese underneath that tortilla will do just the trick. I also put in a little cilantro to add some flava flav.

Yogurt pops - If your little one isn't a big on eating a particular fruit, throw it in the freezer with some yogurt and a pretzel as the stick, and bam. You have a popcicle. I even prefer these over ice cream now. The combo of the sweet and salty is perfect. So yummy, and healthy.
