4 Kid-Friendly Dips

These 4 kid-friendly dips are easy to make and perfect for dipping everything from meat to vegetables at dinner or even eating with a spoon for a healthy snack! 

Hi friends!

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve probably seen some of these dips pop up in my food prep posts for the past couple of months. I initially started whipping up dips like that to give Squish something to dip his meat into. Turns out he likes a few of them so much that he generally just ends up eating them with a spoon. However, he’s recently developed an affinity for ketchup and has pretty much mastered dipping his chicken in that, so I’m hoping that his dipping prowess will soon extend to these dips as well! If not, by the spoonful is just fine with me!

These are super simple recipes and are so easy to make! Dips are a fun way to add some extra nutrients to your child’s plate and it’s fun to experiment with different flavor combos.

Here are the recipes for these four:
