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.
- Bell Peppers
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Kraft Dips: French Onion, Green Onion, or Bacon and Cheddar
- Wash veggies
- Cut and prep vegetables by cutting. Be mindful of the size of the cup you are using and cut sizes accordingly to fit.
- Add about two tablespoons of Kraft Dip in either French Onion, Green Onion, or Bacon and Cheddar to the bottom of the cup. *Tip: Use a funnel so that the cup stays clean and pretty!
- Add your veggies inside the cup, arranging in a way that they are easy to eat and look nice!
- Decorate by using cute kids wands, colored toothpicks, or small paper flags!
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.
