Variety in one sitting (or standing) is what makes a veggie tray a veggie tray. Nibble on a little of this and a little of that and you won't feel carrot (or celery, or cucumber, or... you get the point) overload. So why not make an Itty Bitty Veggie Tray? Just do as you would if you were making a big one except slice and dice a little less and put them in little containers.
I would love to send these off with a healthier alternative to Ranch dressing, ie. cottage cheese or hummus... and my children will eat those alternatives. But when it comes to veggies, they are stuck on Ranch.
(I hold out hope....)
Itty Bitty Veggie Trays
- sliced carrots
- sliced red pepper
- sliced celery
- a little broccoli
- a little cauliflower
- grape tomatoes (tomatoes only go into one lunch box in this house)
- any other veggie you have on hand that your child (or spouse) will eat
- Ranch or healthier alternative
- little containers
