Vegetable Ideas for Snacks and Lunches

Kids like to dip their vegetables. Try our recipe for reduced-fat ranch dressing, or hummus. Peel the stems and steam broccoli spears for 30 seconds. Steaming and then chilling softens those "hard to chew" veggies.

Roll-ups anyone? Wrap meat or cheese with lettuce or spinach. The crispy texture is a treat.

Pocket sandwich - Stuff finely chopped green veggies (green peppers, broccoli, or spinach) and shredded cheese into pocket bread. Try tomatoes and shredded carrot too. Top with yogurt or dressing to complete this yummy sandwich.
