Nutritionally, white beans amount to a lot more than, well, a hill of beans. They're low in fat and high in fiber. And if you pair them with a grain, such as pasta, you create a complete protein that contains all the essential amino acids -- a fine alternative to meat. Kids reap the health benefit even if they eat beans and grains at different times of day.
