4 + 1 Sandwich ideas for kids (and big kids)

Whoever said the month of resolutions is January did not know what they were talking about. September is the month for new beginnings. I don’t know why I said that as I’m always up for healthy eating especially for my kids, and especially when I need to innovate constantly with ways of suggesting nutritious yet delicious meals.

My latest one has been one of the most successful ones I must admit.

Tip #1 Use yummy bread (my latest obsession is Lidl’s pumpkin bread. Try it to believe it)

Tip #2 Have sweet & savoury options available, you never know (refined sugar free as always)

Tip #3 Everything is a game, have fun and introduce everything in a fun way


I used ingredients from Lidl with the highlights being

  • The delicious boiled chicken slice with a herb crust
  • The creamy cheese spread with herbs
  • Fresh  and yummy hummus
  • Last but not least, the pumpkin bread
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Cucumber
  • Peanut butter
  • 1 Banana
  • A few parmesan shavings
  • High quality sliced cheddar cheese
  • Turkey slices

Ideas for Sandwich combos 

Sandwich 1: Peanut butter and chopped bananas – be generous with both

Sandwich 2: Hummus and cucumber (you’ll be shocked)

Sandwich 3: Avocado spread (use your fork or a blender), cucumber and parmesan shavings

Sandwich 4: Creamy herb cheese spread (I used the one from Lidl and it’s super flavoursome), boiled chicken breast with a herb crust (yummy and light) and a slice of tomato

Sandwich 5: Turkey breast a slice of cheddar cheese and cucumber (go light)
