avocado honey dip

If you’re at your wit’s end with your little eater, try adding a new element to mealtime: dip. Dipping makes dishes more interesting and interactive—and this Avocado Honey Dip is healthier, thanks to the good-for-you fat in the avocado. It’s great for veggies, fruits, pretzel sticks, and just about anything else your child wants to try.
