Little apple dippers

Getting kids to eat something good for them seems to be a challenge in my house. As a mom I have to get creative and sometimes sneaky when it comes to incorporating healthier foods into my children's meals. Here I took fresh apple slices and dipped them in various toppings such as almond butter and Nutella and topped them off with nuts and chocolate. These are always a big hit and never last long.
