Running out of ideas for snacks? Try this simple & healthy version of the pink dip children love and that we usually make with ketchup and mayo, ready in less than 5 minutes, when your veggies are prepared ahead of time.
1 container (175g) of 0% fat Greek style yogurt
2 tbsp of tomato paste
1 tsp of organic mayo
1 tbsp of chopped chives
Kosher salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients together until you get a smooth consistency.
Serve with lots of veggies.
This will keep for 4 days, covered in the fridge.
Tips: Cut your veggies ahead of time and keep them in airtight container, ready to use for the entire week. Use a lot varieties and colours to make it appetizing for kids. Chives are aperitifs, they will enhance their appetite unlike something sweet, like ketchup, for example that will compel them to feel full and no touch their food.
Variation: If your kids are all boys and they won’t get close to anything pink, add paprika to the dip and it will turn orange. You can then call it the ‘Sunset Dip’.
My Personal Story: Kids prefer raw veggies to cooked one. If you present colourful raw veggies with a dip they like, they will it their veggies and ask for more. Try it!
For Mummys: This is also a low calorie, no guilt, healthy snack. You can even take some to the office. And you can eat as much as you like, it’s even good for you!
