One of my goals for this year is to try and find some new ideas for my kids lunches and at the same time encourage my kids to eat some more/different fruits/veggies than they normally do.
Nathan has never liked eating celery on it's own but really enjoyed this quick and easy snack. I used 1/2 cup of cream cheese (softened) and added 1 tsp of his favorite lemon dilly seasoning from Epicure. Since Karensa did not like this it looks like I am back to the drawing board for her.
Here are some other great ways to change up this snack idea:
-use plain cream cheese and top it with dried fruit, diced veggies such as bell peppers or cucumbers
-Mix in shredded cheese and some salsa with plain cream cheese
-Mix in bits of your child's favorite fruit and add some cinnamon or honey
-Make a savory spread by adding own favorite herbs and mix in shredded carrots or other minced/shredded veggies.
What are some tricks or tips you have used to get your kids to eat more fruits and vegetables?
