I've read these healthy food variations for kids and I would like to share it to all moms like me who are reading this blog.
These recipes and tips will help you perks up those lunch time brown-bag basics. As far as we know, kids love a good peanut butter or grilled cheese sandwich, but giving it to them everyday? It's not only boring but also its not encouraging nutritional variety. So, I'll share to you suggestions of having a nutritional sandwiches.

  • Cashew or almond butter and honey on 12-grain bread

  • Add dried cranberries and walnuts to your favorite chicken salad

  • Stuff a salad in a pita (keep the dressing on the side if it's going in a lunch box)

  • Give them a Gobbler! Turkey, cranberry sauce, and a thin layer of mashed sweet potatoes or leftover stuffing

  • Grilled vegetables with goat cheese on toasted wholegrain bread make for a tasty and healthful combination

  • Grilled portabella mushroom with melted Swiss cheese, avocado, and honey mustard is a big hit with the older kids

  • Instead of the standard mayonnaise or mustard, use pepper jellies on ham, turkey, and chicken sandwiches

  • Skip the bread and use some Boston Bibb lettuce leaves as sandwich wrappers

  • How about a fruit sandwich? That might even make for an interesting new breakfast & slices of your favorite fruits between thin slices of a Banana Bread.

Try also setting down with your kids and ask them a sandwich idea with you. You might be surprised with the combinations they'll come up with. :))
