1. Organic Cream Cheese and Sweet Pickle Bagel

Whole grain bagels are a great alternative to sandwich bread — they’re compact and when cut in half, they fit perfectly into most lunchboxes. The combination of a smear of organic cream cheese and a layer of sweet pickles add a burst of tangy sweetness that will delight even the pickiest of eaters.

2. Organic Hummus, Cucumber, Tomato, Red Pepper and Bermuda Onion Pita

If you child hasn’t tried hummus, now is the time to introduce this delicious fiber packed spread to their meals. Add a layer organic hummus to a whole grain pita, then layer with a combination of diced cucumber, tomato, red pepper, Bermuda onion and any other veggies that you child loves. To finish it off, slice the pita into pizza-like wedges. Another alternative is to swap the pita for a tortilla. This power-packed pita will give your child the boost of energy that they need to get through their day.

3. Grilled Organic Almond Butter and Jelly

A great alternative to peanut butter is almond butter. When you place an almond butter and jelly sandwich in the panini press for a couple of minutes, you take ho-hum to yum-yum. Your child will love the familiar taste of PB&J, but with a crispy, gooey and crunchy twist.

4. Nutella and Organic Bananas

What child doesn’t love Nutella? It’s what would happen if cocoa and hazelnuts fell in love. This chocolaty nutty spread is taken to a whole new level when you add a thin layer of bananas to the mix. And what a fantastic way to work fruit into a sandwich. It’s like a banana split sandwich — almost.

    You can take organic chocolate spread instead, there are a lot of brands that exist. :-) Thank you for all these creative ideas!
