Easy to Make Healthy Lunches for Your Children

School lunches are notoriously low quality and unhealthy. Although the situation across the country is getting better, Great Harvest Bread Co. in Newtonville suggests giving your children only the best by preparing their lunch at home, for them to take with them. Here are two healthy sandwiches your children are bound to enjoy!

Egg and Tuna Salad Sandwich

This high protein sandwich is delicious, and will definitely give your young learner a brain-boost in the middle of the day!
  • First, combine two finely chopped hard-boiled eggs and pickles with mustard and a little bit of lite-mayonnaise, then spread on a slice of Great Harvest multi-grain bread. Next, combine drained canned tuna, finely chopped celery, a little onion, and lemon juice. Finally, spread on another slice of bread, sprinkle with torn basil leaves and assemble the two sides. Tip: Cut the sandwich diagonally for easier eating and include a frozen ice pack to keep everything chilled through the morning.

Almond-butter and Dried Fruits

If your children prefer a little sweeter sandwich, don'f fall for the creams and jams packed with fats and sugar! There's a much healthier option, and it;s incredibly simple.
  • First, spread a layer of organic almond-butter on one side of your multi-grain bread. Add dried fruits such as cranberries, apples, mango, or apricots on top of the almond-butter. Take your second slice of bread and spread another light layer of almond-butter on one side. Finally, assemble the two sides together with the fruits stuck in the middle. This sandwich doesn't require cooling, but the almond-butter may melt a bit if it gets too hot.
