Kids love to dip their food! Dips are a great way to entice children to eat fruits and vegetables. Instead of giving them unhealthy cream based dips try this dip instead!
It contains a secret ingredient that’s so good for them…beans!
Not only are beans loaded with fiber and protein, they are a great source of iron which is often deficient in a child’s diet. They are also a great source of phosphorus, magnesium and potassium….all important for those little growing bodies!
This dip paired nicely with oat bran pretzels and baby carrots however, it would make a great spread on a veggie or turkey sandwich!
Honey Mustard Dip
1 15 ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons yellow mustard (preferrable organic, gluten free)
3 tablespoons raw honey
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
-Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy.
note: children under the age of one should not have honey because it may contain spores of clostridium botulinum which causes botulism.
