Presentation is very important to children and sandwiches don’t have to be boring!
What you need
Your child’s favourite sandwich ingredients
What you do
- Assemble the ingredients
- Using fun shaped pastry cutters, cut sandwiches into shapes to fit the occasion. (e.g. Valentine’s – hearts; Christmas – Christmas trees, holly, stars)
Note: You could also try using letter cut outs and spelling your child’s name for an impressive edible platter.
Sandwiches with a twist
- Remove the crusts from a slice of bread.
- Spread with a small amount of mild spreadable cheese or polyunsaturated margarine.
- Add a slice of ham or other fillings depending on child’s tastes.
- Fold the sandwich lengthways into a roll.
- Wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge overnight.
- Before placing in the lunchbox next day, cut into thin slices and rewrap with cling film.
