Expert Tips

Arrange the sandwiches over a thin bed of nuts (peanuts, walnuts, almonds, etc.). Decorate the salad with a flower made of olives and a red pepper in the center.

My sweet one-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter can spend hours playing with geometrically-shaped blocks. Not only does she recognize the shapes and is able to tell them apart, she also loves associating them with colors. One day, after a long struggle to get her to take more than three or four bites of her food, I came up with the idea of presenting every possible food to her in different shapes. With the help of games and riddles, she ended up with an empty plate and, at times, stammered the word every grandmother hopes for: “More, more.” I suggest you do the same here, by offering a fun option for your children’s lunch boxes, especially if they’re very young (Place lunch with Ice packs in an insulated lunch box).

Directions

  • 1 Cut small sandwiches in the different previously mentioned geometric shapes.
  • 2 Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on each half of the sandwich.
  • 3 Add two banana slices to two of the sandwiches, and the chopped grapes to the other two.
  • 4 Cook the elbow pasta according to package instructions for al dente results and drain well.
  • 5 Mix the elbow pasta with the sour cream, the honey, the olive oil, the chunks of apple, the salt, the pepper and the garlic powder.
