Breaking the Sandwich Syndrome

How do you pack a child's lunch? What about sandwiches? A lot of mothers would like to know the answer to that question. Our children never did want sandwiches in their lunches everyday even in our white bread and bologna days. I had to break the sandwich syndrome, the belief that every school lunch required a sandwich, with creative alternatives offered below.

Soup in thermos, whole grain crackers, muffin or slices of a quick loaf bread, yogurt, carrot & celery sticks or other finger vegetables.

Finger vegetables, vegetable dip, whole grain chips or crackers with cheese or hard-cooked egg, or bread with nut butter or peanut butter, milk.

Whole grain sandwich on varied types of breads, leafy lettuce packed separately, carrot and jicama sticks, whole grain goodie or piece fresh fruit, juice or milk.

Banana, raisins or a dried fruit, fruit-nut, or nut mix, cheddar cheese slices or mozzarella string cheese, cottage cheese, plain yogurt, or fruit yogurt.

Easy to pack salad recipe, or sandwich spread or filling suitable to top lettuce leaf with some broken lettuce, cherry tomatoes, chopped veggies as desired, paper bowl with fork, whole grain crackers or muffin, milk or juice.
