Crudités and Dips

This is a great option for picky eaters, who may be discouraged by a larger meal.  Sliced carrots, cheese and sliced apple work well and you can add hummus or peanut butter to dip.  Pop in a juice box and some crackers and you’re ready to go.  Crudites are also great as a snack to keep them going between meals, happy campers all round!
