The new year is a great time to make healthy changes for you and your family. One resolution to consider is cutting out – or at least cutting down on – junk food. This recipe for hummus with Greek yogurt is a satisfying snack that’s good for your smile! Chickpeas are packed with folic acid, which helps facilitate healthy cell growth in your mouth. And if you use celery or carrot sticks instead of pita chips to dip in the hummus, it’s even better. Celery and carrots help clean teeth with their crunchy texture.
