Sandwich On A Stick
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m not sure why but children seem to just love food on a stick, so try sandwich on a stick to create some fun with the classic sandwich. Give the kids a range of ingredients and they can make their own (a great way to practice the division of responsibility in feeding). You can also create your own flavour combinations.

?Serves: 1
? Prep: 15 mins    Cook : 0 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread (ideally multigrain)
  • 2 wooden skewers

Variety of ingredients (suggestions):

  • 1 slice cheese
  • handful spinach leaves
  • 1 purple cabbage leaf
  • 4 chunks red capsicum
  • 2 cherry tomatoes
  • 6 slices cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon avocado or mayonnaise

Directions

  1. Prepare ingredients by cutting bread and cheese into four squares and cutting vegetables into large chunks (try using our Foost first knife)
  2. Spread one side of bread with avocado or mayonnaise
  3. Take a stick each and thread one piece of bread onto stick (thread bread side first so that when completed avocado will be on the inside of the skewer
  4. Now thread veggies and bread onto sticks, ending with a piece of bread on a end (avocado facing inwards)
  5. Make two skewers or more if you like

Notes

Toast bread if you want a crunchier texture

Try making other flavours; maybe pizza sandwich on a stick, Greek salad on a stick or Caesar salad on a stick

If your children are still learning to like some of the ingredients above, then add more of ingredients they already like (perhaps some pineapple or natural ham)

You can make tiny stick sandwiches by using toothpicks
