Whether it’s the bright pink colour or the sweet taste, this hummus is sure to be a hit with kids of all ages. What’s more, it’s an excellent way of working some extra vegetable protein into your menu. The recipe was developed by our very own Rebecca Sly, a program coordinator here at Breakfast Club of Canada
