    Default Favorite 'dips'?

    Lane had been lukewarm about eating bananas until dh had the brilliant idea of dipping them in yogurt. What other sorts of dips (traditionals dips or otherwise) does your toddler like?

    In the same vein, at what age did you start offering raw peppers?

    Benjamin is very fond of Italian salad dressing. We use the brand in the 3-sided bottle, Romano Cheese flavor.

    We use it for any type of meat or starch. Ketchup is of course another favorite.

    some favorites (which aren't all particularly healthy, but they do get her eating healthy food!)

    ketchup
    ranch dressing
    BBQ sauce
    yogurt
    applesauce (she loves this with her chicken?!!)
    caramel apple dip (for a special treat)

    Hummus (for vegetables)
    Salsa (for tortilla chips)
    Tomato Sauce (for bread sticks)
    Ketchup (for everything else LOL)

    I can't remember exactly when DS started eating raw bell peppers. It was around 1. He was definitely younger than Lane is now when he started. He likes orange and yellow peppers the best.

    DD has been eating raw peppers since about 18 months or so. I worried about the skin at first, but she didn't seem to have any problems with it.

    Ryan won't go for it, (but he is so picky) but what about a bean dip? Like a white bean puree or a regular refried bean kind of dip.

    We do Annie's ranch dressing, ketchup and apricot preserves that he dips his bread into.

    The only dip DS seems to like is ketchup. He usually dips the food in the ketchup and licks off the ketchup and doesn't eat the food though! I haven't had much success with any other dips yet. He did like salsa on some tortilla chips at a Mexican restaurant a couple of weeks ago, so I guess that counts too. I haven't tried that on anything else yet though, maybe I will now!

    My dd will only do ketchup. My ds current fave is tzatziki. He also loves bleu cheese dressing, caesar dressing, hummus, ranch dressing, sweet & sour sauce, things like that.

    Grated parmesan cheese (he likes to "dip" anything in it)
    Olive tapenade from Trader's Joe (mostly for chicken)

    Queso - melted cheese - is often a big hit.

    Edited to add - he often just eats the cheese off of the cracker or other food he is dipping in the cheese!
