wow- chocolate sandwiches! i can imagine she was the envy of all the small children. All through my childhood, I had home-made bread with vegemite and cheese inside. and i always liked that, it didn't get too soggy like anything with tomatoes or chutney can get. egg sandwiches are arlo's favourite. good luck with the school lunches- i'm looking forward to getting some future ideas from here.

I am laughing so much at the chocolate sandwich and the look on my children's teachers faces if they pulled one of those out. How funny. Bikkies and slices are the go around here. Anzacs are a favourite and a Donna Hay slice, sultana and coconut. Also little muffins, blueberry or banana, baked in a mini muffin tin. And I always cut Beth's sandwiches out with a cookie cutter. Come to think of it, I cut nearly all my kids food with cookie cutters...

if you want to send a chocolate sandwich, why not try Nutella? It's hazelnut spread.

also, try adding some ricotta cheese to make it oh -so cheesecake-like!

i didn't like sandwiches b/cc they got soggy.

Oh wow - she must have been one spoilt Greek kid!! I always got mortadella and cheese...Oh how I wanted peanut butter sandwiches......we used to swap sometimes....

I have been having the same dilemma with Lottie's preschool lunches. No prepackaged food is allowed and I am fine with that, but all home baked goodies are also forbidden! I was devastated. I had visions of glorious little squares of sweetness all wrapped up in greaseproof paper. Oh well it's not to be so I am afraid she ends up with either vegemite and cheese or diced chicken with chopped fresh herbs and mayo. This week I am also going to try a little salad in her lunch book with chicken, cucumber, cherry tomatoes etc. And maybe some crackers or pita bread on the side.
Her favourite morning tea is chopped mango sprinkled with blueberries.
I wonder if I try the chocolate sandwich if it will pass as not prepackaged?

i am not going to be much help
but i just had to say
that my daughter has been taking
a baloney and mustard sandwich
on white bread every day for
SIX years now...

apparently she is a little
"harriet-the-spy-tomato-sandwich"-like.
heh.

good luck with the lunch search, though!

As a special treat my older cousin used to make us peanut butter and m&m sandwiches! MMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!

Luckily my 5 year old's school allows peanut butter. But sometimes I pack other things for her. Crackers and cheese sometimes, potato rolls with deli meat...

Jeannette

sometimesI send her with leftover pizza, mmmm

Hey, I could quite happily lose the bread and just eat the chocolate filling all on its own!!!

Hi,

Well, my comfort food is condensed milk sandwiches. They are sooo good.

And now for the real reason I came here. I read your blog every chance I get, and really appreciate it.

I'm really sorry to intrude on your space like this, but I came to proposition you and everyone who reads your blog. Now, don't delete me, hear me out.
I've just started a new blog, it's Oh, what a preeety world, and here is a little something about it:

I recently had a conversation with a friend on the differences between our countries’ different habits, dates and customs. Which led me to the following idea:

A blog where all we do is discuss our national treasures, ie, the people in it. What they do, how they live, how they celebrate.

I know there are a lot of personal blogs out there, telling all about the person’s life, what they eat and all. But I thought it would be nice to have a place for just that, where stories converge.

Please stop by and comment on this week's topic. We would really appreciate your view on the subject.

My oldest takes a cheese sandwich everyday...and it has to be toasted so that the cheese and bread stick together!!! Now my youngest I send a yogurt and banana, with an icepack in the lunch box. What about carrot and celery sticks to dip in peanut butter or ranch dressing?

oh how timely. My boy has started doing longer hours at kindy this year and this includes lunch. I forgot all about the 'nut free' kindy policy and sent him off with a peanut butter sandwhich...and on the same day forgot his sheets. I was frowned upon by the staff.

what about a boiled egg. peeling the shell keeps them quiet too. or is there a no egg policy??

some healthy dips with bread sticks, carrots, celery etc.

pita bread pockets filled with yummy things.

a carrot.
rolled up cold meat, cheeses, olives, cherry toms.

Sushi rolls.

good luck

Just wanted to say that when I was little (we lived in France then) I would get a chocolate sandwich for snack time at school...the school served it to us. ;)
My daughter is super picky and will not eat in preschool ;( Except when they offer her sweets and cookies...or do you call them biscuits

Zelia

Whoa! sounds heavy:)

jessica

wow that is an interesting story. having grown up in hungary i do remember eating bread and chocolate together, not as a sandwich..just a hunk of bread and a piece of chocolate. maybe it's a european thing.

nel

oh my gosh, chocolate sandwiches? Really?? Lol! My youngest is in year 5 and she doesn't like sandwiches. I usually pack her a 'special'. Carrot sticks, cherry toms, cucumber sticks, cheese and crackers. She loves this and it's easy to eat. Throw in a treat now and then and she's pretty happy :-)

Hi there! You welcomed me to the blogging world ages ago, but I didn't even know until today! I just signed back on and am trying to get back into this. I'm a chronic lurker but am intent on participating--starting this very day! So thank you for your lovely welcome, and please come visit again soon. :)

Without the bread that would be my perfect lunch :)))

mela

i had to laugh when i saw that sandwich in your post :o)
when i was little i got sometimes a "chocolate bread"
( http://www.germandeli.com/saessc.html ) to school but the chocolate was much thinner! still....

Michelle

The picture made me chuckle. I sometimes catch my kids making peanut butter-Nutella-marshmallow-chocolate chip sandwiches. Why mess with anything remotely wholesome like bananas?

Nutella is tasty though, tastes like chocolate and hazelnut and it just heavenly.

Thanks for the entry, I'll get it added.
