Sometimes when we want to snack on , its the usual fried stuff that we think of chips, chocolates, bondas …etc. So why not try something that is healthy and not so calorie laden snack. This is something , I love to make when my son’s friends come home. You can be quite creative by keeping some carrots and cucumber with the chips.Children will love eating them . Leftover hummus can be stored in the fridge for a day or two and can be used on toast as well. The options are endless up to where our creativity ends. Try it today for a healthy evening snack or for a child’s school snack.
