Make it Fun!
Encourage kids to use their imagination while dipping. Where adults see a carrot being dipped in hummus, kids may see a diver jumping into a pool, a bee collecting pollen, or a plane picking up cargo!
Run out of dipping vegetables before running out of hummus? Never fear! Spread this hummus on a wrap or sandwich.
