Instead of grabbing for a typical bottle of barbecue sauce with a list of ingredients I can't pronounce, I'll make this homemade version with fresh fruit and no added sugar. I know my kids will love it with grilled ribs or chicken. It's easy to make and can be done within ten minutes.

If you're going to buy a prepared sauce, make sure it's Not Ketchup! These are their newest varieties, and they're incredibly delicious and sweetened only with real fruit. My kids love them on burgers, and they're also fantastic for dipping, grilling, glazing, roasting, simmering, and stir frying.

Made with Greek yogurt and just a touch of honey, this dip is healthy while still sweet enough for kids to love it. When I offer this with a tray of veggies, my kids will gobble them up. It's also delicious as a salad dressing or on a burger.

With sweet summer strawberries and the oh-so-good-for-you chia seeds, this jam is too good to pass up. It's just as sweet as store-bought but with no added sugar or preservatives. It's delicious on toast, pancakes, or even in a smoothie.

Made with low fat cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, I would love serving this nutritious dip to my kids. Instead of a packaged dip mix, the recipe calls for a few delicious spices and herbs that take it to the next level. It's an excellent appetizer dip for your next gathering.
