Dip It, Dip It Good
DIP IT GOOD
What passes for Winter in San Diego is almost over and we're seeing baby squash, sweet peas and carrots of all colors at the farmers' markets now. Sounds like perfect snack foods for the kids, but what if your little ones turn up their noses at raw veggies?
Psssst. We've got a secret. Most kids will eat anything they can dip. The trick is not to let them dip deep fried chips, and not to use unnaturally-orange melted cheese as the dip. Better choice: hummus. Healthy, full of protein, and available in a wide variety of flavors from Baba Foods and Lisko Imports, it's an easy snack time answer. Try the cilantro or roasted red bell pepper varieties for a little kick with chilled radishes, or apple slices dipped in peanut butter hummus. Everybody likes to take a cool, refreshing dip.
