Affordable and creative sandwiches ideas

Getting your kids ready for school in the morning can be a stressful time; particularly if you also make it a point to personally prepare their lunchboxes. It is not easy to cook a delicious menu that is different throughout the week yet also packed with enough nutrients to power your kids through each day.

One of the simplest and most fun solutions – especially if they are picky eaters – is actually the humble yet healthy sandwich. With so many ingredients available for any budget from your nearest FairPrice store, sandwiches are a great way to feed them a balanced and tasty meal that is also fuss-free to create.

The best part about sandwiches is that they do not have to be boring, because they can be made into little pieces of art that will brighten up your kids’ day. All you have to do is get a little bit creative with your planning!

From making their favourite cartoon character or animal out of slices of cheese and ham to pretty landscapes put together with bits of vegetables and meat, each sandwich can be an edible postcard of love for your kids.

Better yet, you can even make it with them by waking up a little bit earlier to squeeze in some quality time together before you both go your separate ways!
