If you are not currently in school, close your eyes and think back to a time when you were: Wearing a backpack bigger than you are, you climb off the schoolbus and are suddenly very aware of the rumbling in your belly. It's been three hours (if not longer) since you ate your cafeteria pizza or tenderly assembled tuna fish sandwich, and there's no way any homework is getting done until snacks happen.

So let snacks happen: Whether you're the one who's ready to break out the carrots and the pita chips (hey, big kids need snacks, too) or prepping a snack for smaller fingers, these 12 creamy dips will tide you over until it's time for dinner:
