Getting kids to snack healthy can be a challenge, but these egg dippers are loads of fun! Experimenting with the toppings can be fun, too. Try different minced veggies or dips, cheeses, diced ham, anything you want! Make the eggs ahead, set out the plate of toppings, and let the kids dive in.

A fun and healthy snack for after school!


2-4 hard boiled eggs

2 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/4 cup your favourite shredded cheese

3 Tbsp finely minced chives

1 Roma tomato, seeded and finely minced

3 tbsp finely minced cucumber

Small handful of stick pretzels

1-2 tbsp Ranch dip


1. Arrange the dipping toppings on a small platter or plate.

2. Peel the eggs. I find that setting them into an egg cup for each person is fun for serving.

3. Stick a pretzel into the pointy end of the egg so that you have a handle when you are dipping.

4. Dip the larger, flatter end into the ranch dip, then sprinkle with the toppings or dip as well.

5. Eat! Double dipping is harder once you've bitten into the egg and risks yolk falling out, so it's handy to have a spoon to add more dressing and toppings to the rest of the egg.
