It’s that time of year again – school is back in session. So many transitions, albeit familiar, are underway to help kids ease back into school; shopping for new clothes, checking items off the supplies list, packing lunches … If both you and the kids are getting tired of the same old lunch routine, why not mix it up! Little tweaks to humdrum school lunches can add an element of fun and interest, for both brown bag packer and eater.
Start with the sandwich. Instead of the classic white bread, introduce your child to something new. There are a multitude of often-overlooked elements that can take one bite from boring to brilliant, such as grain, color, loaf, size, texture, scent and of course, flavor. Rye bread is an excellent option that immediately grabs attention – and it’s loaded with health benefits, too. To make lunch easy, here are three ways to help you become a perfect packer.
3 Steps To Becoming A Sandwich Superstar:
1. Reach for Cincinnati Dark Rye
2. Mix Up the Mustard – Instead of Yellow, use honey or Dijon
3. Say Cheese – Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on one slice of rye.
