You try to get your kids to eat wholesome, nutritious meals…But how do you make sure that the food you pack makes it all the way to your child’s mouth? You know that sandwiches are a great way to integrate a variety of food groups into their diet…But how do you keep them from becoming boring?
Help stop the swap by making lunchtime meals exciting! Kids love to create things, so why not make lunch time, craft time? Try out the below recipes as a fun way to turn the typical “boring sandwich” lunch into a creative meal your child will enjoy eating. Say goodbye to meal swapping – now their lunch will be the talk of the cafeteria!
Better Lunch Recipes:
No need for premade meal kits when you can make your own, using the ingredients you love! In a bento box or multi-compartment container, arrange your favorite pizza elements: pizza sauce, pepperoni slices, mozzarella cheese, and toasted Martin’s Potato Bread circles. When ready to eat, build your pizza and enjoy!
Ham & Cheese Sandwich Stackers
These sandwich stackers are a fun alternative to regular “boring” sandwiches. Use a star-shaped cookie cutter to create cut-outs of deli-sliced ham, Swiss cheese, and Martin’s Potato Bread. Then, arrange all of the ingredients separately in a container and let your child stack their own sandwich when ready to eat.
Crustless PB&J Sandwich Pockets
Make lunch fun with these DIY sandwich pockets! Start by removing the crust from two slices of bread and cutting them into circles using a cookie cutter. Then spread on your PB&J (or desired fillings), form your sandwich, and crimp the edges with a spoon or fork. Your kids will love guessing what’s inside!
These deconstructed sandwiches are a fun and simple way to switch up your lunch routine! Simply cut up slices of your favorite Martin’s bread, deli meat, cheese, and veggies, then stack them all on a wooden skewer.
