Hummus, the Perfect Dip for Veggies
Hide Video Transcript
SPEAKERSnack time, the perfect time for a serving of veggies. Yes, really. Think your little old carrot sticks can't compete with these treats? Think again, because kids can't resist the dip.
We're talking hummus, the perfect pairing for chopped peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, whatever you have on hand. Traditional hummus is made from chickpeas, but you don't have to stop there. Flavor it with peanut butter, lemon juice.
You can even boost the veggie value by making it with spinach, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, or roasted peppers. Tasty options like hummus and veggies can convince your kids to go for healthier snacks.
And when they make better choices at snack time, they'll feel more motivated to make other good fit choices too, like playing outside instead of staring at a screen. With so much flavor and dippable fun, we bet your kids won't even notice they're snacking on veggies.
