Perfect for Picky Little Eaters

by N. Nancy , Saint Charles, MO on Mar. 2010

I have two preschoolers who can be very picky about food. However, they like to dip their vegetables and chips. I wasn't sure if they would eat this because of it's color. However, my 4 year old loved it and even got my 3 year old to try some. I can feel good about this healthy option for my little dippers!
