It’s PB&J time again
My kids are heading back to school next week which means I need to get on the ball to make sack lunches every day. It’s kind of tough to make a great lunch for my kids because they are both so picky. The girl pretends not to like peanut butter and jelly and neither kid will do a sandwich with meat or cheese. The boy doesn’t want chips but will eat as many Cheez-Its as I can cram into a baggie. They’ll both eat fruit until they explode, but I’d like to get something substantial with a little protein into their bellies too. Last year they liked Slim Jims, but that really isn’t a very healthy option. So what’s a gal to do? Some Google searching, that’s what.
Here are some of the things that I found that I think will work well for my two:
Spread cream cheese on a tortilla. Lay out a single layer of pepperoni slices. Roll up and cut in to one inch pieces.
The kids love cracker sandwiches and their favorite version is with Nutella.
Other variations include PB&J, turkey and cheese, pepperoni and cheese or cream cheese.
Ants on a log
I totally forgot about this one and loved it when I was a kid! Take celery stalks, cut to desired sizes, fill with peanut butter and top with raisins.
In all the searching I’m doing I really wonder what kids on this planet are eating avocado, pear sandwiches and waldorf salad and beets. Not a single kid I know. Happy back to school time!!
