1. Sweet Bean Dips

They may sound weird, but sweet bean dips can taste really good and can add yummy protein into your family’s diet. Choosing Raw’s sweet bean dips include one that uses azuki beans and another that uses black beans. This type of dip is ripe for experimentation, but if your kids’ tastes are slightly tamer, you could always try one of many savory bean dip versions, which taste great with veggies and Mexican food.

2. Hummus

Hummus is an amazing spread as is, and kids love its creamy, smooth texture. It makes a great canvas for other veggies and seasonings. Try this orange hummus or consider adding spinach, roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes, even pumpkin. You can also get creative with what beans you use instead of the traditional chickpeas. We love making a black bean hummus seasoned with cumin and cilantro, for example.

3. Ajvar

This sweet red pepper spread goes great with quesadillas, paninis, or even tossed with pasta. It’s exotic enough to keep kids and adults interested, but it’s also comforting and with a texture that even little eaters can enjoy.
