Ta-dah! Easy, mess-free mini bites.
For their sandwiches lately, I've been doing peanut butter and honey. They seem to like those a little better than jelly lately, but we'll revisit the jelly soon. And since they're all sick at the moment, I gave them a special treat for lunch and made sandwich buttons with Trader Joe's cookie butter (yeah, it's really like butter made out of cookies!) and some local honey. I've heard that locally-made honey contains great properties for fighting allergies and colds as they're geared toward area-specific allergens. Can't hurt!
It's the easiest lunch ever, and we've been using these for when we're out during lunchtime, like play dates at the mall. A little diced cheese, snack pouches of applesauce and honey grahams and a canister of milk and we're good to go! Another triplet mom also shared that you can soften apples for eating by soaking apple slices in cold water for a couple hours. I'll be trying that next!
