Healthy eating habits are something all parents want to impart to their children… but it doesn’t come easy sometimes! If Nolan had his way, I’m sure he would choose sweets and sugar over nutritious anyday. So one of the ways I keep this picky eater on the right track is swapping out for nutritious options. Rather than plain white bread, we use Oroweat Organic White Made with Whole Wheat Bread.
Oroweat Organic White Bread made with Whole Wheat Bread is perfect for Nolan’s favorite sandwich – peanut butter and jelly! It has a delicious and soft, smooth texture while also providing great nutrition for kids. I love that it has organic whole grain as the first ingredient, provides a good source of vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin E, and is plant-based, so I can feel good knowing that I’m giving my son something that is wholesome, nutritious and delicious too. Plus it features Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, which definitely made Nolan do a double take and want to eat what’s inside.
Nolan really loves to help out in the kitchen, so we like to let him assist with making simple meals and snacks with us. It’s a great way to talk about food and nutrition, but also about how our food is made and about the environment. He was so excited to learn that his sandwich bread was made using renewable wind energy, and wanted to know more! We’re also teaching him about what goes into the process for growing our food so it was awesome for me to find a great tasting bread that’s USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. Oroweat Organic White Made with Whole Wheat Bread cares about the planet and donates 1% of this bread’s revenues to support environmental causes.
Nolan absolutely loves PB&J the old fashioned way, and it tastes absolutely divine with the Oroweat Organic White Made with Whole Wheat Bread. My tips are to choose an all-natural peanut butter that only contains peanuts, and no sugar, and to pick preserves, jam or jelly that contains fruit juice instead of corn syrup or added sugar. But with a great tasting bread, you could totally mix up your nut and fruit spreads to customize your creation. Here are a few tried and true combinations that are out of this world:
- Almond Butter and raspberry preserves
- Peanut Butter and banana slices (with the option to add a drizzle of honey)
- Cashew Butter and strawberry slices (with the option to add shredded coconut)
- Almond Butter and fresh blueberries
