Roasted Carrot Dip

A dip is a fun way of adding variety to the week of lunches. Pack about 1/2 cup (125 mL) of this dip, wedges of pita bread, carrot and celery sticks or your child's favourite vegetable in separate containers. Add a few rice chips or potato chips and your child will think it's a party.
