School is back! Or almost back, at least for most of us. Making lunchtime exciting for your kids is one of the best ways to get them to eat their lunch. There’s nothing worse than your little ones coming home with a lunchbox of food that’s barely been touched! These Two-Tone Sandwiches are a simple way to make lunchtime fun and takes minimal effort on your end! Here are some reasons why making your little one a Two-Tone Sandwich for lunch is a no brainer!

  • Visual Appeal: Kids are drawn to vibrant and creative visuals. Two-tone sandwiches present a colorful and eye-catching appearance that instantly makes lunch more appealing.

  • Personalized Meal Choices: Allowing kids to choose shapes and fillings empowers them in meal planning, fostering ownership of their lunch.
  • Conversation Starter: Unique sandwiches create talking points, facilitating social interactions and conversations with peers.
