Fall is here and it’s time for everyone to head back to school for the year. That means choosing between school lunches or home-packed meals. In many cases, school lunches can lack the proper energy and nutrition needed for your little ones to succeed. Luckily, packing a delicious, healthy meal to send to school is easy when you’re working with Randall Beans!
This tasty, protein packed take on traditional hummus is one of our favorite healthy lunchtime snacks. All it takes is a jar of your favorite Randall’s Garbanzo Beans, some ranch dressing mix and creamy Greek yogurt. Send this tasty treat to school chilled alongside carrot sticks or celery for a filling, energy filled alternative to junk food.
