tahini-honey-lemon-dip-2You can make this recipe even healthier by using organic and raw versions of all 3 ingredients, if you can find them.

Avocados, I see as a superfood for children.  A great source of fat, calories, high in protein, dietary fiber, folate, vit C and K.

My daughter eats them straight but for my son I blend them with sweet foods such as fruit.
