Introducing children to pulses, in a form other than baked beans, can be tricky. Whilst both of my children will eat lentils in some dishes, neither will touch chickpeas as part of a meal if left whole.
Except, that is, when they’re crunchy spiced chickpeas. Then they’ll devour a tin between them!
Great as a snack or to put on the table to sprinkle over whatever you’re having to add some crunch.
So, if your little one likes crunchy textures then why not give these a go? You could even mix them with popcorn, toasted seeds (and/or nuts, if appropriate) and dried fruits to create a homemade trail mix.
Please take care as these can be a choking hazard.
