When I want a quick-and-easy lunch option, I often turn to the sandwich. Let’s face it: I often need our lunches to be quick and easy. Sometimes we are out and about during the morning and I get home with only a few minutes to throw together a healthy lunch. I try not to get too dependent on Meghan’s favorite sandwich, the standard peanut butter and jelly. I think it’s important to add variety to a toddler’s diet and and this sandwich is super kid-friendly, yet very nutritious, so it’s a great way to switch up your regular sandwich routine.
Tahini is ground sesame seed paste; its most popular use is as an ingredient in hummus. Tahini is high in B vitamins and is also a great source of calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, protein, and fiber. You can find it in the ethnic foods section of most well-stocked grocery stores.Print

I gotta tell you, as much as I created this sandwich for Meghan, I love it. It is so tasty. You can use the other half of the banana to make yourself a sandwich, or just slice it up and serve as a side. Enjoy!

Tried this new sandwich combo with my 2 year old son today and he devoured pretty much all of it! Thanks for giving me another healthy lunch option I can use 🙂
You’re welcome! 🙂 So happy to hear that.
My 4 y/o loved this sandwich so much that he had it 3 times this week! Thanks, Maryea, for a great sandwich idea.

What a creative sandwich! I bet my daughter would love this 🙂
Sounds delicious! Too funny that you posted this, I was going to request more meatless toddler sandwich ideas! Perfect timing, thank you Maryea!
This sounds good and easy! Love it. I need new sandwich ideas. We have been eating lunch outside or at the park lots lately and I usually just make sandwiches.
