I don’t know what it is, but kids have a fascination with dipping things into food - be it crackers, fruit or veggies.

Dips offer you the opportunity to increase their nutrient intake and introduce them to some new foods.

This Vibrant Beetroot Dip contains not only beetroot, which is high in antioxidants and a great source of fibre, but also cannellini beans and tahini.

Cannellini beans are a good vegetarian source of protein and are packed with B vitamins, along with iron, potassium and zinc. Tahini, made from sesame seeds, is an excellent calcium source for those who steer clear of dairy. It also contains healthy fats and fibre.
