Do the Dipping
Kids love dipping; and raw vegetables paired with tasty dips make the perfect lunchbox treat, after-school snack, or first course at dinnertime. Young children served vegetables before anything else ate 47% more (of the vegetable that is).
Try a healthy dip, such as hummus. Bonus: It's made with chickpeas which do count as a vegetable!
