Recipes by CHEF NANCY RUSSMAN

 

Messy Apple Wrap

Recipe from “Chef Nancy’s Kids’ Club Cookbook”

Remember that Sunbutter is NOT made with peanuts or tree nuts

 

Sub Sandwich

(If you are making this for one it works great on a whole wheat hot dog bun!)

·         A whole wheat baguette sliced long ways

·         Mustard on one side and mayo on the other

·         Low fat cheese slices

·         Veggies like you pack with other sandwiches (toss in some Italian dressing for an extra punch)

·         Slices of deli turkey or roast beef

·         Slice it into 3 of 4 sandwiches … depends on the size of the baguette

 

 

Veggie Ideas

·         Carrot chips

·         Celery strips

·         Red bell pepper strips

·         Broccoli flowerets

·         Cauliflower flowerets

·         Radishes

·         Other crunchy veggies

 

Pretzels

Children like salty food.  Pretzels are a good option

 

Trail Mix

I like to switch it up some, this is a basic recipe:

·         1 box of cereal high in vitamins, low in sugar.  I like cinnamon Chex

·         1 can of peanuts

·         1 jar of sunflower seeds (if there are nut allergies I use 2 sunflower seeds and no peanuts)

·         2 bags of dried fruit i.e. craisins and apples.  Whatever you child would like

·         1 bag of mini chocolate chips

·         2 cups of mini pretzels

I make this and put it in an airtight container.  It is also good with yogurt for breakfast and snacks.
