Kraft introduces 'Salad Frosting' to help trick your kids into eating more vegetables

Kraft says its new dressing will encourage kids to eat their veggies. Of course, the dressing itself is far from healthy.

Salad frosting. Yes, it's a thing.

Instead of simply asking kids to eat salad dressing -- or pretending the age-old condiment bears the hallmarks of a dessert staple -- Kraft Heinz has introduced "Salad Frosting," with the sweet tooth-invoking word right there on the label.

But here's the catch: It's just a slim tube of ranch dressing, relabeled so parents can trick kids into happily eating their vegetables.

"Kids will eat anything with frosting, right?" the company states in a news release. "It's a match made for dinnertime bliss."

True, but you have to wonder: What about kids who have tasted ranch dressing? Won't they quickly blow the cover?

It's also worth noting that ranch dressing isn't exactly the healthiest option for kids -- or grown-ups. Just 2 tablespoons Kraft's version has 110 calories, 11 grams of fat and 290 milligrams of sodium. The same amount of Betty Crocker vanilla frosting has more calories -- 140 -- but just 5 grams of fat and 70 milligrams of sodium.
