This one is super simple and healthy!  Spread peanut butter or cream cheese on one of the insides of a hot dog bun.  Spread the other side with jam or honey.  Seal in a container or plastic wrap and add to your child's lunchbox.  Include a banana as well in their lunch so that they can peel it and place it themselves in the bun right before they eat so it stays fresh!

For this idea simply layer on what your child loves on their sandwich such as cheese, meats, pickles, tomato, etc., with squares of bread on the end of each stick.  What a fun idea!
