Some kids like spicy, some don’t… but most like to dip food in something! Chips, nuggets or whatnot. Dips can be a way to entice kids to eat vegies! Here are some Savoury dipping sauce ideas.

 
Tomato Salsa – Puree tomato, red and green capsicum and a little onion and chilli if your child likes it – leaving some larger pieces. Mix in some lemon or lime juice and some fresh chopped herbs.
 
Sweet Chilli Cream – Mix about half and half sweet chilli sauce and sour cream. Add less chilli for milder sauce.
 
Chilli Plum – mix about half and half sweet chilli sauce and plum jam. Add less chilli for milder sauce.
 
Honey Mustard – Mix ¼ cup sour cream with 1 tb mustard (dijon) and 1tb honey.
 
Thousand Island – Mix about half and half tomato sauce and mayonnaise.
 
Hummus – Puree a drained and rinsed tin of chick peas with a few tb lemon juice, a few tb water, a clove of garlic (if your child likes it, leave it out if not), and about a teaspoon of a mixture of cardamon, nutmeg and cumin. You can add more water to make it a little runnier.
 
Tzatziki – Take a tub of natural greek yoghurt and allow this to drain on some cheesecloth/muslin to let the excess liquid drain away. Peel and chop a cucumber to remove all the seeded pieces. Finely shop half of this and grate the other half. Add 1tb lemon juice, 1 clove crushed garlic if you wish and a little fresh mint and/or chives. Mix together
