Pack your favorite flavored hummus + crunchy veggies for a healthy school hummus lunchbox.
We’re back to packing lunches this month for the 2018 school year and if there’s one thing I know BOTH boys will be happy with whether it’s lunch at home OR school, it’s this simple hummus lunchbox. Aka a snack lunch filled with lots of dipping, crunch, and color.
Hummus is an awesome vegetarian alternative source of protein. In fact, it’s been one of the first foods I’ve fed each of my children when they were babies. Their love for hummus has carried over into their preschool-age days, and I hope it continues throughout their entire school career so I can continue making this simple hummus lunchbox.

No real recipe for this post. Just pair your family’s favorite hummus [ours is plain] with your favorite dipping veggies + crackers. I always add milk or cheese for extra calcium and protein. You can also add fruit but I’m not sure I’d dip that in hummus!
