I know it is still September, but Halloween is my favorite time of year, so we are starting a little early. Here is a snack that I found online. I thought it was a great way to get something healthy into your kids meal plan with all the candy around during October.
Thousand Island Dip:
2 tbsp cream cheese
2 tbsp natural set yogurt* (see recipe tip below)
2 tbsp light mayonnaise
2 tsp ketchup
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 to 2 drops Worcestershire sauce
1 to 2 drops Tabasco
Serve with Carrot Fingers:
5 medium Carrots
1 sweet red pepper
Measure the cream cheese, yogurt and mayonnaise into a bowl. Whisk until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until blended.
Peel the carrots and taper the ends. Cut a slit in one end of the carrot. Cut red pepper into the shape of finger nails and then trim the back so that it is thinner and then slide into the slit so that it stays in place. Mark the lines on the fingers using a sharp knife.
