Pumpkin Dip Recipe

Pumpkin Dip

Toddlers love the “do-it-myself” aspect of dipping and participating in an activity they’ve seen older kids and parents do. Give them a bowl of tasty dip, and most children this age will eat anything you put in front of them from fruit and veggies to chicken and tofu. Don’t stop with ketchup though; use dips as an opportunity to get additional nutrients, protein, and fiber into baby’s diet.

Canned pumpkin makes it easy to whip up this sweet dip. Make sure to purchase 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.

For your toddler:
•   Serve the dip with peeled apple slices, banana slices, or cinnamon pita chips.
