Egg Free Dairy Free Nut Free

Serves: 2 1/2|Prep: 5 min

This red earthy hummus dip is a nutritious addition to sandwiches, flatbread chips, veggie sticks and can be enjoyed on its own. It can be introduced to little ones right from the start (omit the salt for babies under 1 yr). Hummus is such a fabulous option as it counts towards your child’s protein, carbohydrate and vegetable intake. With the addition of beetroot, you can be assured that they are receiving a whammy full of antioxidants and vitamin C with each mouthful.
