Snacks are high on the priority list for most kids! Ensuring you have healthy snacks on hand is key. Having pre-cut fruits and veggies makes it much easier for kids to grab them and run out the door to summer camp, daycare or even to play. Veggies with dip are usually more enticing to kids. Rather then trying the standard dressing why not try a simple recipe of guacamole? When making dressing from scratch we can control every ingredient in them, guacamole can be as simple as an avocado mixed with lemon juice. Avocados are super healthy and full of nutrients. Kids usually love the sweet taste of guacamole as avocados are actually fruit not a vegetable – who knew! Enjoy a simple snack this summer of veggies and guacamole to satisfy those hungry kids!
