Kids love anything on a stick. I have decided that if I want my kids to eat something, the chances of them actually eating said food improves greatly if it is on a skewer of some sort. Case in point - I showed my non-fruit loving son these fruit kebobs and he made a cute little noise of excitement and declared that I made him a wa-bob. Get it? Waffle kebob? And you know what? He ate it. Because he liked that he had a fruit sword.
I also am a big believer in dips for kids. Sweet and savory. My children love to dip just about everything that they eat in something. Yogurt dip is very handy as far as dips are concerned. My children think that it is about the best thing ever, and it is as simple as stirring a few extras into some yogurt. Greek yogurt is always my base because it is thicker than regular yogurt and has more protein. It is so easy to take a little vanilla yogurt and make a new flavor. Play around and see what you can come up with. Same with the kebobs. Use whatever you have, and customize it to suit your taste. If you want to use full size Van’s waffles, rather than the minis, just cut it into wedges with a pizza cutter.
, toasted (I used Mini Chocolate Chip Waffles)
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest (optional)
Thread fruit and mini waffles onto skewers. Stir together yogurt dip ingredients. Pour dip into a small bowl for dipping.
