Serve pre-cut veggies and ranch dressing as an afterschool snack. Or, pack in a lunchbox for a midday veggie boost. Keep things interesting by offering up different veggies: carrots, celery, grape tomatoes, radishes, sugar snap peas, bell pepper slices, broccoli, and cauliflower are all good options to try. This will allow your child to explore a range of vegetables and find his favorites.

Ranch Dressing Flavor Variations

Classic ranch dressing is always a hit but sometimes you’re in the mood for something a little different. With a few modifications, you can change up the flavors. Our favorites flavor variations are Cajun ranch and avocado ranch.

To make Cajun ranch dressing, simply replace the fresh herbs with Cajun seasoning.

To make avocado ranch dressing, add one avocado to the recipe and blend all the ingredients together with a blender or food processor.
