Celebrate America’s birthday with fun and healthy snacks from Dippin’ Stix.

 

Take yourself back to where it all began and remember those in the armed services who fought hard so we can enjoy our freedom and independence. Kids and young adults often emulate what their parents do at an early age. Be a role model and show them good eating and snacking habits by:

 

  1. Eating plenty of fruits. Fruits are, without a doubt, one of the best foods for a body. They provide vitamins, fiber, nutrients, and they taste good, too!
  2. Incorporate vegetables into meal plans and snacks. It’s often noted that young individuals shy away from certain vegetables. However, if vegetables are incorporated into meal plans and snacks from the beginning, their taste buds will grow to enjoy all types of veggies for many years to come.
  3. Make food displays and presentation fun. Who would choose a pile of carrots or peas tossed on a plate vs. those displayed in fun animal shapes or something enjoyable? Make food presentation fun so kids are encouraged and excited to eat their share of fruits and vegetables.
  4. Lay low on the sweet treats. We understand that America is celebrating a birthday in July, and what’s a birthday celebration without cake, right? However, cutting back on serving sweet treats will be beneficial to everyone involved, whether young or old.
  5. Mix food colors. Be creative and mix food colors for something fun. For example, for the Independence Day gathering, arrange strawberries or apples in rows to form a flag and incorporate blueberries in the corner for the stars.
