4th of July flag snack plate! We’ve got veggies, fruit, two kinds of easy yogurt dip (recipes below), and cheese.

It’s really a perfect plate because it covers several food groups, flavors, and textures. Not to mention it’s beautiful and fun.

Dip for the fruit:
– Greek yogurt 1/2 cup
– Cinnamon 1/2 tsp
– A splash of vanilla (optional)
Mix together!

Dip for the veggies:
– Greek yogurt 1/2 cup
– 1/4 tsp granulated garlic
– 1/2 tsp dried dill
– Cracked pepper
Mix together (for best results, refrigerate for 30 minutes or more before eating)
If you like the flavors stronger, add extra garlic and dill.

The foods on this plate are: cucumber, strawberry, blackberry, cauliflower, red pepper, cheese, cherry tomatoes*

* Note that raw veg can be a choking hazard for kids 4 and under. Cucumber in spears are fine. Quarter the cherry tomatoes for babies, halve them lengthwise of older kids 4 and under.
