I was just telling a group of parents about this pretty pink dip recipe (a.k.a. beet dip - shhhh, don't tell)... It was at a local private school here in Austin where I was invited to speak about child nutrition and the million dollar question... how to get kids to eat healthy food without making… Continue reading Pink Dip (a.k.a.
