Are you tired of the same old square sandwiches? If your kid is starting to roll their eyes at yet another boring peanut butter and jelly, then it’s time for some sandwich art! And not on just any regular bread, either. Make it on Nature’s Harvest®.
Nature’s Harvest breads are all baked with whole grains. Whether made with Whole Grain White, Honey Wheat, or any other variety, it’s â€œthe easy choice for whole grainsâ€, with at least 8 grams of whole grains in every serving. There’s also no artificial flavors, colors or high-fructose corn syrup.
And Nature’s Harvest Honey Wheat is on rollback for $1.97 nationwide, an offer exclusively at Walmart!
I picked up 3 varieties of Nature’s Harvest Whole Grain breads while at Walmart, including Honey Wheat. There wasn’t going to be any regular peanut butter and jelly sandwiches here, though. I had other, more creative, plans. In fact, according to a recent nationwide survey conducted on behalf of Nature’s Harvest bread, nearly 75 percent of moms have employed creative methods, such as styling food into fun shapes, to get their children to eat more nutritiously.
First, we made our sandwich. Yes, still good ol’ peanut butter and jelly. Only so much better! It’s a Bird in a Tree!
Then, we took a pizza cutter and cut out the shapes for our bird. Give the bird a bit of rounded shape, but otherwise a fairly simple cut. Pizza cutters are lifesavers when it comes to slicing breads and waffles, by the way. So much time saved! Leave the crust on top of the bird’s head and his feet.
For his wings, slice the crusts of bread off at an angle.
Position on the plate. A couple candy eyes, a carrot for his beak, and some celery, broccoli and more carrots make the tree this Bird in a Tree is perched on.
Before we started, I also cut a circle of blue paper to fit the plate. Spread a couple oyster crackers about as either clouds or stars, and you have a complete and delicious sandwich art scene!
- PB&J sandwich of your choice
- baby carrots
- candy eyes
- oyster crackers
- Cut a piece of blue paper to fit your plate.
- Slice your bird body into a rounded shape from the middle of the sandwich. A pizza cutter makes this easier. With the 2 leftover sides, slice the crusts off at an angle. Position on the plate.
- Apply candy eyes. Slice a piece of baby carrot into a triangle shape for the beak.
- Lay celery down at the feet of your bird. Use broccoli as leaves. Carrots make the trunk of the tree.
- Spread oyster crackers around the blue sky.
