Does anyone have any good no cheese/ no soy snacks for a child.
She is really bored with what I have been serving.
Especially a good dip, would be great.

We have gone thru all the usual suspect-
peanut butter and honey (and every other alternative),
sweet potatoes, alvacodos, tuna sandwhichs, nothing red, nothing mixed, mostly nothign green.
You know, the ususal kid picky things

If you want something on the sweet side, go to my website and click on recipes. I have a raisin bar recipe made with no eggs, sugar, soy, dairy . . .

As for dips, how about hummus or this one - not the healthies but my kids love to dip anything from veggie burgers to roasted potatoes to carrots in it.

Just mix 1/4 cup mayonaisse with 1 tablespoon ketchup. It is great on sandwiches or veggie burgers too.

How about smoothies - also on my website is a tips page. I give lots of ways to get kids to eat veggies - there are smoothie and grain burger recipes on that page.

Hope this helps . . .

My kids are fond of cereal with milk or cereal mix with pretzels and raisins. We also eat a lot of popcorn because we know a lot of Boy Scouts and they were selling it as a fund-raiser in the fall. An air-popper makes healthy popcorn. I have found that cinnamon toast is welcomed, especially if I cut off the crusts or use fancy cookie cutters to make interesting shapes.

We have a thing that cuts apples into wedges. For some reason when an apple is cut up, they can eat a lot more of it. Some people like to sprinkle cinnamon on their apple wedges and some people don't.

Those expensive yogurts in the tiny tubs or tubes sometimes go on sale, and they are divine...

I buy the cereal and fruit bars that come in the shiny foil packages. They are not very healthy, but they travel very well so I don't have to worry about them going stale in my backpack after a few days or weeks.

Cathe- Yes, hummus (many different versions even) is another one of the things she is tired of. But she still loves to make it!!!
I am planning on trying your receipe with her this weekend. I find if she cooks with me, it ups the odds that she will eat it! Congrats on a new book!

Best Job- Thanks for the advice. We do eat a lotof ceral without the milk. In my post I should have been more specific that she is allergic to all cow milk products and soy. She wont eat goat cheese, and only occasionally goat milk (man its expensive, though!) We also buy those granola bars- but the parents devour them first usually!

thanks both

-you could make different bean dips with other beans, you could still add sesame tahini if not creamy enough. Tahini works as a wonderful base to make anything creamy.
-Nutritional Yeast imparts a cheesy flavor to anything, & gives a b vitamin boost at the same time-you could make a cheesy dressing with this & tahini, some lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, maybe some oil, flax or olive, water it down to your preference, add seasonings, maybe some pepper? or whatever you like.
-other nut butters, if you haven't already tried them, would give her different tastes
-rice & nut milks might help "replace" the cow/soymilk, if you've not already tried them
