Working from home, I’m almost always home for every meal. I thought it was difficult planning out dinners every week, ha! I’ve had to get creative when it comes to lunches, especially with the twins. I switch fruits, take advantage of leftovers, and even play around as I did with these Shape Sandwiches for Toddlers!
(I partnered with Nature’s Harvest® for this week’s sandwich art creation.)
Shape Sandwiches for Toddlers
Now that the big kids are back in school, it’s just me and the twins during the day. We are doing Toddler School during the day and working in all sorts of ways to learn. Colors, numbers, letters, and shapes are the focus of our lessons and even our lunches!
I used one of the twins’ shape sorting toys to make Shape Sandwiches for Toddlers! The kids can even help make these by smashing down the bread and pushing the shapes into the sandwich.
Depending on how hard they or you push, you may need a toothpick to help get your Shape Sandwiches out of their shapes.
The twins enjoyed watching me make the Shape Sandwiches and were eager to dig in when they were done.
If you are looking for sandwiches for toddlers, these shape sandwiches are great. Easy to make, and using Nature’s Harvest Honeywheat Bread means whole grains! Families can count on at least 8 grams of whole grains in every serving if Nature’s Harvest Bread.
You won’t find any artificial flavors, colors or high-fructose corn syrup in Nature’s Harvest, and ALL Nature’s Harvest varieties carry the whole grain stamp. Whether made with Whole Grain White, Honey Wheat-or any other variety, moms can be sure it’s made with whole grains because it says Nature’s Harvest.
We go with wheat bread almost every time we shop. We enjoy the taste, and whole grains are a great thing to eat. Every one of Nature’s Harvest bread is baked with whole grains and at least 8g per serving. With lots of varieties, all Nature’s Harvest bread are a good choice and “The easy choice for whole grains” as their slogan says. I agree.
Did you know that *57% of American consumers eat whole grains at least every two weeks in their diet? It’s #2 in their list of BFY eating habits after “Reduced/No Fat”. I know I eat it at least every other day, but my kids not as much. I wish they did and I’m working on that, like many other parents.
According to a recent nationwide survey conducted on behalf of Nature’s Harvest bread, nearly 75 percent of moms have employed creative methods, such as styling food into fun shapes, to get their children to eat more nutritiously.
