Preschool Lunch Menus & Ideas for Kids

Preschool Lunch Ideas: Grilled Cheese with a Twist
http://www.preschoollearningonline.com

This is a great kid’s lunch idea when you feel like you are in a rut making the same things over again. You don’t need a whole menu change; sometimes adding things to your own menu is all you need.

Adding protein to this all-time favorite sandwich makes it tastier, and keeps those tummies full for longer periods of time.

What you will need:

Real Cheddar cheese or slices if the children prefer that
Butter
Whole Wheat Bread
Sliced Chicken or Turkey Breast or Ham

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place butter side down on a napkin. Slice very thin slices of cheddar cheese (or use cheese slices…one slice of cheese for each slice of bread) until you have enough pieces to cover each side of bread. Put the chicken or turkey breast or ham over the cheese on one slice of the bread. Then add the remaining cheese on top of the meat. So now the meat is in between both slices of bread.

Put the other slice of bread on top. Pick up the sandwich and discard the paper towel.

Place in a med. heat frying pan and cook until both sides are browned and the cheese is all melted.

I usually serve this sandwich with a side of veggies and ranch dip, or a fruit salad.

Drinks: Milk, Juice, or Water
