Portion Control and convenience for you and your kids

Hummus ( chickpeas and sesame seeds) comes in 2 ounce single cups ( four cups in a package) This is an example of portion control and convenience shopping. Add a slice of bread and you have a complete protein, a complex carbohydrate. The hummus is low in sodium, saturated fat and should be considered as a part of a healthy eating pattern. It adds variety to diet, in moderation, with good balance of nutrients.
