Kid's Lunch
For the Kids :-)
Nik feels blessed with seven nieces and nephews and, in preparation for their weekend visit and an excursion to the museum, he is packing a boxed lunch with healthy but fun twists to some kid's classic favourites.

The Best Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

  • challah bread (suggested alternates: whole wheat, seven grain or raisin bread)
  • smooth peanut butter
  • crunch peanut butter
  • honey
  • raspberry jam
  • raisins
  • unsalted sunflower seeds
  • banana
  • alfalfa sprouts
  • animal shaped cookie cutters

  • Spread half the sandwiches with crunchy peanut butter and the rest with smooth.
  • Spread half of the remaining plain slices with jam and half with honey.
  • Evenly sprinkle raisins and sunflower seeds on peanut butter side and top with banana slices.
  • Add alfalfa sprouts if desired.
  • Pair a peanut buttered slice of bread with a honey or jam slice.
  • Gently press sandwich and place cookie cutter in centre and slowly press down to cut shape.
  • Carefully trim excess bread with paring knife before removing cookie cutter.
  • Keep fresh by wrapping each shape in wax paper and seal with a gold seal sticker.
Carrot Flowerettes

Peel one large carrot. Use a standard potato peeler with a pointed end to carve several light ridges down the length of the carrot. Slice the carrot as you would for carrot coins and a delightful flower shape will fall away from the knife with each cut. Wrap in plastic wrap.
