When my boys were younger, lunch was as hassle-free as breakfast. I always made sure we had a good supply of kid-friendly favourites like macaroni and cheese, soup, sandwich meat and oriental noodles and when lunch arrived, I just asked my boys what they wanted and they chose from the array of products in the cupboard and fridge.
But now Zackary is in Grade One and that means that I need to find ways to keep his lunches interesting and appealing so that he gets the nourishment he needs for a long day. The snacks are easy; I simply choose from a variety of Zackary’s favourites including pudding, applesauce, fruit slices, granola bars, raw veggies and fruit snacks to make sure that he gets different healthy snacks and treats every day. But keeping the sandwich interesting…now that’s a challenge.
I had been experimenting a bit with different shapes of sandwiches and wraps but I was starting to run out of ideas, so I did what I always do when I need a little inspiration for my meals: I visited the Life Made Delicious website and searched for lunch meals. And that’s when I found a recipe that would be a perfect replacement for Zackary’s sandwich…Ham and Cheese Muffins!
