My kids are both going through a picky stage. I suppose everything is relative because my 4-year-old did recently choose to eat a spinach salad topped with feta, black olives, cucumbers and Greek dressing instead of a greasy piece of pizza. (Lest you think she has no food vices, a chocolate chip cookie the size of a plate topped off her lunch.) But honestly, both kids have been really tough to feed lately. Nothing appeals to them – not even the old standbys like peanut butter sandwiches.
So Mom’s had to get creative. These Rudolph sandwiches were a big hit and super easy to make. I got the idea from the December issue of Your Big Backyard and adapted my reindeers a bit since we didn’t have all the ingredients on hand.
I cut whole wheat bread into triangles and spread peanut butter on top. Then I used raisins for the eyes, two Goldfish pretzels for the antlers (small pretzel twists would probably look more like antlers), and a pomegranate seed for a nose (dried cranberries or cherries would work, too). Both girls gobbled up their sandwiches and Mom was quite pleased with herself.
