Make Vegetables Fun By Having Kids Dip Them

Get Your Kids to Eat More Vegetables: Tons of Vegetable Dipper Ideas

Veggies don’t have to be boring! And something I’ve learned through my own experiences and through my research, is that kids love to be interactive with food.  Having kids interact with food takes the intimidation factor out of trying new foods.

One of the best ways to ensure kids eat their veggies is to make veggies taste yummy. And, make veggies fun!   Below are some super yummy ways to prepare veggies for kids and adults.

And, remember to keep changing up how you serve your vegetables by steaming, baking, frying or offering them raw to your kids. It takes countless exposures for kids to grow to love to eat vegetables.

You can pack these veggie dippers and dips with your chid’s lunch or offer them during snack and mealtimes. You can even offer these veggies as appetizers before dinner. The more times your child is exposed to vegetables, the more comfortable he or she will be to try them.

Beet Fries

Beet Fries: Foods for Kidsimage credit: Renee Seltzer

Recipe: Cut beets into fry shapes. I used golden beets here, but red beets work too. Cover in coconut or olive oil and sprinkle garlic powder on them. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes. Turn midway (if you remember to) if not, you’ll get some brown spots like me 🙂

Works with all root vegetables: potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, rutabagas, etc. Mix and match seasonings. I normally put cinnamon on the carrot sticks. Share your favorites below in the comments.
