Salad frosting?  What the....?  It's just repackaged ranch dressing from Kraft.  The idea is that if you call it frosting and put it on a vegetable your kids will eat the vegetable. 

Sounds pretty sneaky and I'm not sure how well it will work.  Maybe, if your kids are very young, but the older they get the less gullible they become.  Not to mention the trust issues that may arrise when you try to pass of ranch as frosting.  Your kids may never forgive you.  The real benefit would come from teaching kids to eat vegetables without ranch dressing.  Or any dressing.

Plus, actual frosting on a baby carrot sounds like a terrible idea.
