A Mothering Moment: Sandwiches

Here are various options on how to make a sandwich for your 2-year-old to achieve optimal results.

  • Make a peanut butter sandwich. Your toddler gets a nice lunch but may possibly hurl a milk cup at you for no apparent reason.

  • Make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Your toddlers gets a nice lunch and may refrain from ear-splitting scream for the next three minutes.

  • Make a peanut butter and honey sandwich. Your toddler gets a nice lunch and gives your plenty of sticky grins.

  • Make a peanut butter and honey sandwich, using a cookie cutter to make things a little more interesting. Your toddler gets a nice lunch and is so inspired by your creativity that he or she spends the rest of the afternoon recreating Van Gogh's "Starry Night" with crayons.

  • Make a peanut butter and chocolate chip sandwich. Your toddler gets a nice lunch, will be accepted to Harvard on a full scholarship, and will have you featured in Time Magazine as the "Best Mommy Ever!"

I still make myself PB&J sandwiches. With grape jelly, of course.

Kristina - what, no bacon?

We do things like banana slices, hide one raisin in it (because Ethan hates raisins, and we think it is funny to see him find the raisin), and sometimes we add Lay's potato chips for a nice crunch.

It's amazing how many variations one can find with a plain old pb sandwich.

My toddler and preschooler prefer peanut butter and nutella. At least it's on homemade whole wheat bread. That makes it healthy right? I feel like it is an accomplishment that they ate something at all :)

My kiddos would never want to eat my plain on pb&j if they ever ate at your house and got chocolate chips on their sandwich!!!! :) I will be sure to keep my eye out for that article here in a few years!! ;)
