Need ideas on what to dip?
Kids love to interact with their food. It helps to make mealtime fun and this can get kids excited to try new foods. One of the best ways to avoid food jags in children is to keep offering different types of food, preparations, textures and flavors.
Food jags are prolonged periods of time your child is refusing a particular food or foods he or she used to like to eat. It is very common with kids, but there are things you can do to help prevent and/or reduce food jags.
By making food fun and interactive, you are helping to turn your reluctant eater into an adventurous foodie.
We have created a whole series of what to dip. Do you want your kids to eat more protein? Check out the protein dipper ideas to make proteins more fun.
