Kids love Chips and Dips

IMG_1852

Chips and dips have been enjoyed by Mediterranean kids for hundreds of years. After World War II, chips and dips got popular in the United States. Throughout the world, snack sales are growing at record breaking rates with wider and wider margins of profit. However, the snacks are often full of empty calories and loaded with sugar, salt, fat, additives, preservatives, and toxic chemicals. The food industry spends billions to addict the world to these impulse purchases. Fortunately, kids can make delicious healthy dips and chips quick and easy at home for a fraction of the cost. Kids can make nachos with all organic ingredients. Kids can grow an organic avocado tree in a container on the patio, which will provide a yummy guacamole dip with garlic, tomatoes, and cilantro from the organic veggie garden. Yams can be sliced thinly in a food processor, placed on a baking sheet, brushed with olive oil on both sides, and baked at 475 degrees for 15 minutes, turning once. Kids can enjoy nutritious yam chips and guacamole dip that they can make themselves from a small garden in a few minutes.
