DIY Creative Sandwiches for Kids

The famous expression “we eat with our eyes” is definitely true, especially for kids! The look of the food is one of the criteria that we use to decide if the dish is worth it or not. When we are cooking for kids we have to use our creativity, mainly when the dish involves things that are not as attractive to them as vegetables! In this post we will show you how to make a healthy sandwich, using simple ingredients but with a funny look: a crab! You can use this idea in your daily meals or in special occasions like birthday parties or picnics.
