Snack Hack! How to Make Portable Veggie & Dip Jars for On-the-Go! by Christine Jones
As a mom of three, I'm always running to activities and sporting events with the kids. That means I need lots of on-the-go snacks for them (and for myself) to keep us fueled up. A really easy and healthy snack hack are these portable veggie and dip cups. I use Ball Plastic Freezer Jars, but any non-breakable jar will do. Here’s how to make them:
- Put a generous scoop of your favorite spread like hummus, tzatziki, ranch dressing or even peanut butter (or another nut butter) in the jar.
- Add in pre-chopped vegetable sticks, such as cucumbers, carrots and celery.
- Screw on the cap and you're ready to feed hungry kids (and parents!).
I always have some pretzel sticks or baked chips on hand as well so they can keep dunking once they get done with the veggies. Stay powered up, no matter where you are!
