It melts my heart that children get so excited about the little things in life. Especially when we as moms find creative ways to turn the everyday things into something extra special. Like a healthy snack, for example. Baby carrots and hummus is a go to snack for kids because it is easy, tasty and yummy. With only a few minutes more however, you can present your child’s healthy snack with some creativity and fun! Here is how you can make “Carrots in the Garden”.
