Sandwiches for Lunch

Whether your kid’s been in school for a few weeks or hasn’t even started classes yet, getting the proper kind of fuel–the type that’s good for brains and growing bodies–can be a challenge. Over at Bon Appétit, there’s a short history about the Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. I have fond memories of mine: crunchy peanut butter (always) and jelly (grape or strawberry) on white bread (my mom made us switch to wheat as I got older). These days, PB&J equals natural crunchy peanut butter, fruit preserves (hello, Bonne Maman; check out the Golden Plum Mirabelle), and healthy whole grain bread (toasted). Whatever the iteration, PB&J is a classic and a lunchtime standard, no matter how old–or how young–you are. But for some other lunchtime options, just check out the Community Table. Highlights include Open Faced Honey Bourbon Glazed Salmon Sandwich from A Healthy Life for Me; Panzanella Cobb Salad from Food Fanatic; and Meatloaf Sandwich from My Daughter’s Apron. A couple of other lunch resources–and healthy ones, at that–our latest Doable Challenges featuring nutritionist Tina Ruggiero’s healthy lunch tips and advice, as well as SELF’s seven picks for healthy lunch foods you can buy at the grocery store.
