There are certain times during the day that parents know when crazy-ness is about to hit the wall...
Those longing hours when naps are over, school is out, dinner isn't for a few more hours, and the kiddos bellies are grumbling. One child has discovered the convenient water release button on the fridge, and now there are full glasses of water all over the place. (Kind of like that Alien movie with Mel Gibson...) While the other baby fends for her self in the pantry, opening a bag of dried beans and an almost empty bag of tortilla chip crumbs.
Come to think of it...Maybe my life is a movie about aliens?
It's that moment in the day where sitting the kids down for a nice snack is probably the best idea, unless of course you have Disney Jr. on, well then...that's a good idea too. ;)
Snacks should be quick & easy, and draw in the attention of your littles! Which is why we love this Sweet Dip! Your kiddos can pick the mix ins and dippers so that it pleases their picky taste buds! Have them put it together, and watch them gobble up their latest creation!
Sweet Fruit Dip-After School Snack
Right between lunch & dinner, right after school, is when the kiddos start rummaging the kitchen for something to fill their bellies. This Sweet Dip is perfect for fruit skewers, pretzel sticks, etc.! And there are so many variations of the dip, which can please any picky child!
- Greek Yogurt-Plain
- Shredded Coconut
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Chopped Nuts
- Chia Seeds
- Ground Flax Seeds
- Spices-such as cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.
- Pretzel sticks
- In a bowl, mix together the desired amount of greek yogurt with desired toppings.
- You can get really creative with the mix-ins, depending on the preferences of your kiddos!
- Drizzle and fold in your favorite sweetener!
- Grab your favorite dippers, and enjoy!
And while the kiddos are munching away, you will have plenty of time to go around the house collecting those random cups of water.
Unless of coarse...you may need them later...
