New school year, new lunches! A way to spice up your child’s lunch:

With the new school year approaching, are you trying to think of new ways to incorporate healthy food into your child’s lunch? We are! At Mama Gaia, our top priority is to provide our customers with the best food with the highest quality ingredients to better their lives. Ramping up the nutritional value of your child’s lunch doesn’t have to be a pain. Actually, it’s quite simple!

Typical lunch boxes consist of store-bought items that aren’t always the best for your child. Instead of putting a bag of chips into your child’s lunch, why not try incorporating organic raw veggies and hummus? While chips are full of fats and other harmful things, hummus is packed with nutrients that have been found to have countless nutritional benefits. Hummus pairs well with carrot sticks, celery, bell pepper and more. Just chop up your kid’s favorite veggie, pop in a serving of hummus and you’re done!

What is hummus? Hummus is made out of chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans. This food is packed with tons of nutrients that fight inflammation, encourage good digestive and gut health, and control blood sugar levels through its low glycemic index. It’s even great for those with food intolerances, as it’s gluten-, nut- and dairy-free! The best part? It’s incredibly tasty! 

This new school year, try making the switch to hummus and pita wedges or organic veggies for dipping. Stop by Mama Gaia’s Crosstown Concourse or Ballet Memphis location today to give our organic, all-natural roasted red pepper hummus a try!
