Everyone knows that kids could be picky eaters, my baby is no different. Before getting ready for work, I make her meals for the day. Preparing lunch can be challenging because of certain limitations. Since daycare doesn't usually reheat her meals, I have to send ready to eat lunches. I try to be creative and switch things up whenever possible. Princess can be a bit fickle with her food, like mama.
I came up with an interesting combo that I'd like to share. It's an apple, cucumber, and cream cheese sandwich. Here's how it's done:
First I cut an apple into small pieces and steam them. I find that cooking them for about 10 minutes prevents the apples from turning brown, and it's easier for Princess to chew. If your little one doesn't mind the tangy taste, you can add lemon juice instead.
Then I slice cucumbers into small pieces.
Once the apples and cucumbers are prepped, I spread cream cheese onto whole grain bread.
Finally, I cut the sandwich into small cubes and it's ready to be served. Princess couldn't wait to try it. Here's how she did:
A yummy, healthy snack! Who knew?
If you have a tasty and healthy lunch or snack idea, please send them my way.
