Better than Bread & Butter: New Sandwich Ideas Kids Will LOVE!

13 Jul

Change is good, try new things, be creative, shake things up, variety is the spice of life!  Here’s some great (easy & simple) sandwich ideas from Parents.Com that kids will love.

My daughters’ favorite “new” sandwiches are cream cheese or hummus with thinly sliced cucumber (I use a vegetable peeler and press hard to make a thick fine slice) and peanut butter with thinly sliced apple!  So, get creative and use some of your kid’s favorite things to make new healthy sandwiches!  Bon appetite!
