Kids Love Pickles!
Pickles are crispy, crunchy and flavorful – a great alternative to chips and high-calorie sweets. Include pickles when preparing school lunches or picking out after-school snacks.
- The USDA says 1/8th of a cup of pickles counts as one of the five recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables.
- Kids love cool, refreshing pickle pops.Make them by chilling large, juicy dill pickles and skewering them with ice cream sticks. It’s a tangy, fun snack that’s long on flavor and short on calories or fat.
- Try wrapping a baby dill pickle or sweet gherkin in a slice of salami, bologna or ham spread with low-fat cream cheese for a satisfying nibble.
