Fun fact: kids are way more likely to try new types of food if they make it themselves. Present them with a bowl of kale chips or crispy roasted chickpeas for example, and you’re likely to get dubious looks. Most youngsters would consider brownie bites a more appropriate treat. But if they’ve had a hand in putting it together, snacks can be much more enticing, especially if they’re spruced up with the deliciously familiar flavor of ranch.
Prepping snacks with the children also gives parents a way to engage kids and toddlers, teach them new skills and give them an activity – always a challenge when stuck at home.
