Whether parents like it or not, kids are snacking more than ever before. Children ages two to six are consuming the highest number of snacks and some figures show 20% of children are snacking up to six times a day. Kathy McManus, MS, RD, Director of Nutrition, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, says snacking in moderation is okay but, make those snacks count nutritionally. If like some kids, yours are getting up to 27% of their daily calories from snacks, they should be offered healthy choices. Here is a simple and delicious dip that your kids will really go for. My girls love it with honey crisp apple slices, but graham crackers would also be a hit.

Hi! I am Katie and I am glad you're here. Have a look around, have a bite to eat. My blog is all about healthy recipes and cooking. I swoon over spicy arugula and go weak in the knees for spring’s first beets but I also like a little bacon and my first solid food as a child was a Philly cheese steak. Maybe that’s why when it comes to cooking, I believe in everything in moderation. I try to buy local and I cook with whats in-season here in Vermont. And the absolute best part of my day is enjoying what I’ve cooked with my two green bean-eating daughters and husband at our family table. If you're curious about my professional work be sure to check out my food styling gallery and the published works page to see my recipes and styling in print. Read more...
