Sticky Stacky Sandwiches
The kids love it when we make the same old boring sandwiches, with a new presentation! Skewering your sandwich ingredients is fast, fun, and for kids who normally don't eat tomatoes on their sandwiches, they just might when it's on a stick!
We've got some
- Whole Wheat bread
- Cheese (cut with cookie cutters)
- More cheese
- and another piece of whole wheat bread.
You can get creative and stack any type of sandwiches this way. The key to making a sandwich healthy for your little ones is to make sure
- You are using 100% whole grain bread!
- You include a protein (if using lunch meat, watch for sodium content, or cut your own from a home cooked turkey)
- good proteins include peanut butter or other nut butters, meat, a bean spread like hummus, etc.)
- Include fruits or vegetables!
- Vegetables are a great combo with any bean spread or lunch meat. Fruit is great to slice on nut butters.
Stick your finished Sticky Stacky Sandwiches in Styrofoam, put in a flower pot, and use as a centerpiece. Your kids will have fun pulling one out for their mid day meal!
For more of our skewered meals (cause we think they are awesome)
- Breakfast Date Bread (On a stick)
- PB&J (on a stick)
- French Toast (On a stick)
- Olive and Cheese Snack
You can even place these beauties in a lunch box to be eaten at school, if you wish.
Here is where I'm supposed to ask a question, so as to get this community interacting and so I can find out who the people are that read my blog, and then visit your blogs... but most days, I can't think of a question, like today. Maybe you can just pop in and say, "Thanks a lot Amy, we tried the Sticky Stacky Sandwich, and my son poked his skewer in his little sisters eye!" And then I'll say, "Oh my goodness!!! I'm so sorry! It's horrible". and for safety reasons, I'll be forced to remove the entire post. Ugh, what's a blogger to do?
