Cinnamon Pita Chips with Cream Cheese Dip

Cinnamon Pita Chips with Cream Cheese Yogurt Dip

Liam's daycare recently implemented "Snack Share Wednesday" — every Wednesday, each child in the class brings a healthy snack to share.

This is the third week of Snack Share, and I thought I would share the snack that Liam is sharing today. It's one that kids and adults alike would love.

When we recently went out for brunch on Mother's Day, Liam surprised us by asking to dip his tortilla chips in salsa. It seems they've been encouraging the kids at daycare to eat their veggies by dipping them in different dips and sauces.

These cinnamon pita chips are super easy to make, and so is the dip. You can make both in about 30 minutes!

I used whole-grain pitas from Trader Joe's. Since the pita chips are coated in honey or agave syrup, there's no need to add refined sugar. The dip gets flavor from the vanilla extract, and also contains no added sugar. You do get protein from the Greek yogurt. So snack away!
