What better way to get your kids to eat their lunch? Make it cute! And fun! A little easier than traditional bento and involving only your average sandwich ingredients. Using cookie or sandwich cutters (specially designed for the task!), you can easily take your sandwich from blah to "I want one, too!" I've found that it's much easier to cut each piece individually - bread slices, cheese, meat (if you're using it), lettuce or veggies, etc. Quick, easy and perfect for a packed lunch! I used two different kind of bread (white and whole grain - both gluten free in this case), carrots, lettuce, raisins (eyes) and cheese slices for the sandwiches in the photo, but get creative - radishes, avocado, onion - just about anyhting you would use in a sandwich, you can use on a sandwich to decorate!
