Double Dippin’ Cheese Sticks
String cheese is not usually a food we need to convince our kids to eat, but this is a fun way to enjoy it. It teaches the kids about different textures, colors, and tastes—and they can double dip all they want! Choose some of the dips from the list below or create your own ideas. Remember to teach them only double dip if it is your food, not shared!
Makes 1 serving
1 piece string cheese
Choose 4 of the following ingredients:
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon applesauce
1 tablespoon crushed pine nuts, almonds, or peanuts
1 tablespoon crushed tortilla chips
1 tablespoon crushed crackers or goldfish crackers
Put the dipping ingredients in separate small dishes on a plate with the cheese. Have your child dip the string cheese into each dish and discuss the different tastes. Take a bite and dip again.
