My five-year-old nephew and I were enjoying peanut butter and jelly sandwiches while taking a break from swimming and I told him sometimes at work I get so excited to eat my sandwich, I take a few bites before lunch. He giggled. What I didn’t tell him is that this is usually because I’ve gotten up early that day to workout so I’m ready to eat lunch at 10:30am. But I don’t really want to take my lunch break at 10:30am, so I grab a bite, a slice of my apple and head back to my desk.
Making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich like sushi makes it even easier to pop a few bites. I know school kids have limited lunch breaks so they do better with finger foods and the smaller the bites, the easier it is for them to grab and eat. I make mine four rolls out of one piece of bread, but you’ll see I really love peanut butter*.
*No one in my office has a peanut allergy, but I realize this is a concern in classrooms and workplaces.
