You don’t have to be able to sculpt melons into creatures or pears into bald eagles in order to present fun foods to your kids! Heaven knows I could never be that clever. But, what I can do, is stick some broccoli into a mound of hummus, and so could you!
It is our favorite way to eat raw broccoli, dipped in hummus. Our favorite hummus recipe is this:
- 1 15oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas) drained and rinsed
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 2 TBL lemon juice
- 1 TBL olive oil
- Blend up in food processor.
So, give it a try! Hummus and raw broccoli is a perfect healthy snack for your little ones. It has a delicious blend of carbs, protein, fat, and a variety of vitamins and minerals, more easily absorbed than supplements ; )
