I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of white bread. As a household we generally eat wholemeal.
My 7 year old devours a sandwich faster than it takes me to make it, while my girls pick the insides out and leave the crusts. It can be very frustrating, especially as they are then hungry an hour later. Just last week little S asked if for a special treat she could have white bread sandwiches in her school dinners once a week. She asked me so nicely I couldn’t say no. My main concern with white bread is the lack of fibre which I think is important for little ones.
Luckily for little S Kingsmill have a new loaf of white bread which contains more fibre per 100g than their wholemeal loaf. We bought a pack of Kingsmill Great White to see how it measured up.
I took the opportunity to try and get a bit more creative with the kids lunches, while my husband enjoyed making some more extravagant that usual sandwiches for himself.
My first attempt was a space scene, the actual sandwiches are just ham and peanut butter, as my children don’t like much salad on the inside a sandwich.
I was a little more adventurous on Sunday with these butterfly and rabbit creations. The ladybirds are cherry tomatoes with black icing ( not the healthiest, I know ).
My problem then was how to use up the leftover crusts, so poor Z had everyone else’s leftovers, but then said it was the best lunch EVER!!!
The grown ups of the house had yummy pastrami, tomato, cambozola, red onion and mustard mayonnaise followed by ham, egg, tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise.
What did we think?
The kids loved the chance to have white bread, and I’m definitely happy to give them Kingsmill Great White as an alternative to wholemeal knowing that they’re still getting the same about of fibre.
Little S has requested rabbit lunches every day, so I think I’m going to have to make a bit more effort with my packed lunches.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our sandwiches, I think my personal preference is wholemeal bread, but I’d still buy Kingsmill Great White again for a change.
We were sent a £40 voucher to buy Kingsmill Great White and Sandwich ingredients.
