Veggies are not the first thing my daughter goes to at birthday parties. She is always eyeballing the cake. She might even ask me 1,000 times when she gets to eat her cake. I don’t know if it is just my child, but frosting almost immediately makes her crazy. Like, sugar-induced-toddler-insanity. Bouncing off a couch, losing a shoe, and pony-tail falling out of her head nuts. Trying to get my toddler to eat her veggies can be a difficult task. She recently just exerted her threenager independence, and along with this has decided to be one of the pickiest eaters ever.

I am always quite relieved when I go to a child event and see there are a couple of better-for-you options like vegetables and dip. Recently, I have been trying to introduce more raw veggies into our diet. My child LOVES cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, and bell peppers. I loved the idea of making an easy and quick appetizer for parties that also looks cute. These veggie cups are perfect for little kid hands and easy- no spoon or messy plate required! Finding fun and creative ways to encourage kids my kid to eat vegetables has been a task for myself, and Kraft Dips made it easier. The Kraft Dips come in a fun new package and have the following flavors: French Onion, Green Onion, and Bacon and Cheddar. I got the new Kraft Dips at Walmart in the dairy section. My fave is the bacon and cheddar one.

I chose to add my daughter’s favorite- a Disney princess wand. The whole pack cost me about $2.50 for 12 of them. I can think of tons of fun ideas for birthday parties, but I went for the princess theme. I have no idea why but simply putting the veggies in a cup with dip makes them so much more appealing to kids. I had dozens several say, “Ooh- what are those?”. I just giggled because I was thinking, “What do they look like? Veggies and dip!”. To my surprise they all got eaten.  These cute veggie cups look great on a table spread of food and make a good option for kids. I will definitely be making these again for our gatherings and parties. They are really delicious and easy.

What is your favorite way to get your toddler to eat veggies?

    I too am a fan when birthday parties incorporate veggies. With my kids a nice dip always does the job. I’ll have to try Kraft’s French onion dip. It looks great.

    As a kid, give my son ketchup or ranch dressing and he would eat almost anything. Luckily, he was a good eater and still is to this day, 27 years later. Could use this for adults too.

    My kids would love if I used Kraft dips with their veggie sticks. My daughter goes nuts over dip. I can’t blame her. I love to dip as well.

    These veggie dip cups are a great idea for a fun birthday party appetizer for kids. I love this idea and adding the princess wands would totally make them appealing to the kids too. I will have to share this with my niece for her kids. Thanks for sharing.

    This is such a fun idea! My older two are so picky, but having the Kraft Dips and veggies in a cup might intrigue them enough to give it a try. Thanks! #client

    I’m loving this idea! My daughter and my nieces will love this, although I have to replace the tomato with something else.
