LUNCH

The trick to good sandwiches for toddlers is not to have too much bread or too much filling. It’s a good idea to flatten the bread slightly by rolling with a rolling pin. Try mixing tuna with a little mayonnaise, tomato ketchup and sliced spring onion. Cream cheese and cucumber or peanut butter with mashed banana are popular fillings. For toddlers it is best to cut the sandwiches into bite sized pieces but as your child gets older it’s fun to cut the sandwiches into shapes using cookie cutters
