White Bean Dip: The Key to Getting More Veggies Into Your KidsTwo of my three small kids love hummus and I know many, many more who do. But hummus at the store usually has lots of mysterious ingredients in it — things I can’t pronounce — and having tahini on hand to make it myself is something my pantry just can’t seem to do. Enter the easiest, healthiest dip of 2014. If you want to get your kids excited about eating a few more veggies with lunch or as a snack, this is the way to go.

All you need to do is rinse a can of white beans and add a slug of olive oil, a dash of salt and pepper, the juice of one lemon and, if you dare, mince half a clove of garlic and throw that in too (it’ll make the whole thing a little spicy so be careful with delicate palates). Then fire up the food processor — blend, eat and enjoy with your vegetables of choice.

    Get your kids interested in vegetables by planting a garden and having them participate. I did a lot of "edible" landscaping when my son was little. He wasn't so interested in the weeding but, loved to impress/shock his friends by grazing on flowers, sprouts & veggies from the garden.. Now, as an adult, he is a very creative, healthy chef and wants to expose my grandson to the same joys of edible gardening.
