Serving Up Flat Bread

One of P-buddy’s favorite lunch choices is bread.  Or as he calls it (quite forcefully): “BREEEEEEAAAA”.  There usually is no mistaking what he wants for lunch.  Instead of slapping a plain ol’ piece of bread on his plate I try to spice it up a bit with some flavors, and will often sneak in a few veggies and fruits along with it.  As long as it’s served on BREEEAAAA (bread) it is most likely gobbled up!

We have three breads that we rotate through.  I figure even toddlers need things changed up a bit now and then.  His favorites are:

  • Ancient grains whole wheat bread
  • Whole wheat sandwich thins
  • Flat Out whole wheat bread

Most of P-buddy’s lunches are a combination of veggies, fruits, grains, and dairy.  Usually the grain is served in the form of bread. So you can see why I like to add some flavor to the bread because day in a day out, yep, there is bread on that plate!

Here are some ideas to get you started when boosting up the bread interest!

  1. Jelly and sunflower butter: found next to the peanut butter)
  2. Ham, mushroom and pizza sauce
  3. Melted cheese over cooked lima beans: sounds weird, but he will eat it!!
  4. Chicken enchilada meat with cheese: it’s like a baby taco!
  5. Shredded lunch meat and cheese: do you see a theme with the cheese?
  6. Jelly, strawberries, and small pieces of granola
  7. Banana slices with sunflower butter
  8. Cream cheese: (a breakfast favorite also!)
  9. Tomatoes and sharp cheddar cheese: of course melted!
  10. Cooked spinach, cheese, and mushrooms
  11. Sweet potatoes and brown sugar

This are just a few ideas, but I’m sure with some creativity we could come up with lots of  yummy combinations!

Do you have any scrumptious flat bread recipes?

    We’re in a lunch slump, but I just remembered this post so I’m excited to try flatbread and some of these ingredients. Have you had P try hummus yet? Alex LOVES hummus and also smashed avocado or guacamole.

      Glad you remembered it! P used to Luke hummus on flatbread or crackers, but has been turning away food that he used to love, and hummus is one of them! I have tried it lately as a dip for apple slices, but he would muchh rather have peanut butter! Haha
