My kids aren’t overly picky eaters (my younger daughter loves hummus, dried mango and all kinds of crazy stuff), but they are bread snobs. They don’t want what they refer to as “bird food” in their bread (aka seeds, grain etc). As their mom, I want them eating what’s healthy and something that tastes good, so they won’t be doing the lunch hour sandwich trade at school.
I was given the opportunity to try Wonderbread’s new Smartwhite for Kids and was challenged to make an awesome sandwich my kiddos would love. I was thrilled to learn that Wonder Smart White has no high fructose corn syrup and the same fiber as 100% whole wheat bread.
No matter what’s in our sandwiches, one thing is a must- we have to use the circle cutter! My kids actually call their sandwiches “Circle Sandwiches”… “Mom, can you make me a pb&j circle sandwich? is what I hear just about every day. The circle also makes my school-aged kids pretty popular in the lunchroom!
The real-deal honest, secret ingredient to school lunches is my HUBS! My amazing husband actually is the one to make the lunches in our house. Two nights ago, I actually surprised him by making them, but the kids came off the bus and the first thing they said was, “Who made lunches?” Busted!! Since Eric makes the sandwiches, I asked him about his his secret Wonder Smart White recipe- it’s totally kid tested and approved!
Daddy’s Secret Recipe to the Perfect Sandwich
Wonder Smart White bread
Peanut Butter (we use Skippy)
Eric told me the most important secret is to apply peanut butter to both sides of the bread. You might remember that I’ve shared before how we make our sandwiches once a month, and the double-sided peanut butter keeps the jelly from leaking through.
The second secret is the tool he uses to make “circle sandwiches” We love the Pampered Chef Press and Seal.
I’m so thrilled to have been introduced to Wonder Smart White- I no longer have to worry about getting the stink eye from moms seeing my kids’ white bread. I know it’s good for them and they love the taste!
