Many of today's snack foods are not only nutrient deficient, but they are also quite expensive. Since kids like to munch and dip, try fixing fresh veggies or fruit with a nutritious dip, rather than chips and dip. Keep junk food out of the house and when they get hungry, they will raid the refrigerator looking for something to munch on. Have the veggies and fruit already prepared for them, and see how fast it disappears. Carrots, celery, and apples are all good dippers. And peanut butter on celery is much healthier than peanut butter and jelly on bread. Save money and have healthier kids.
