Condiments

Creative Condiments


Condiments are highly underrated. Some kids won't touch a burger without ketchup, so they might be more likely to enjoy their entire sandwich if it has some flair, like a bit of spiced-up mayo or sweet honey mustard. Does your child love barbeque sauce or hot sauce? Add a dash to a tablespoon of low-fat mayo or plain yogurt to add new life to a sandwich. And guacamole or cranberry sauce paired with deli turkey will soon be a favorite. Just keep an eye on the nutritional information, and make healthy choices. Some condiments have high sugar, fat, or salt content.
