Bite Size Lunch & Tips


This little lunch is for my three year old.  She loves using chopsticks!  Here she can use them to pick up little peanut butter and jelly sandwich squares.  I used a FunBites sandwich cutter to make the perfect little squares.  It is one of my favorite tools. 
I cut an apple into bite size chunks.  The fastest way to do this is to use an apple slicer first, then cut up the slices.  I also sliced up baby carrots to finish off this bite size lunch.

Here is a tip for cutting pb&j sandwiches to keep the jelly from squirting through the bread.  Spread the peanut butter (or peanut butter substitute like SunButter) on BOTH slices of bread first.  Then put a layer of Jelly in the middle.  The peanut butter helps keep the jelly safe inside and keeps the bread from getting soggy.  There still may be some minor jelly squirts (ha ha jelly squirts), but it helps. :)
