Brown Bag Lunch Ideas

As part of our weekly blog, the Cass County Reading Railroad will begin giving some fun lunch ideas for the kids to pack and bring to our Tuesday and Thursday "Brown Bags and Books." We hope that everyone finds these ideas as fun and delectable as we do. Some of them will be our personal favorites while others will be fresh new ideas for everyone to try.

Today's fun sandwich creation is one that is sure to cool you down on a hot humid day, like today.

Strawberry and Cream Cheese Sandwich

1 Tablespoon Reduced Fat Cream Cheese
1/4 tsp of honey
1/8 tsp of freshly grated orange zest
2 slices of whole wheat bread
2-4 strawberries (sliced)

Combine the Cream Cheese, honey and orange zest and spread on the bread. Place the sliced strawberries on the bread. Then chow down.

This sandwich is an easy and healthy addition to a brown bag lunch. It is easy to put together and will taste delicious to the little one when it comes time to eat. So, pack up your Strawberry and Cream Cheese Sandwich, throw in some fruit or even some vegetables on the side and stop by the park.

We hope this fresh new sandwich idea becomes a crowd favorite within your household. We will see you today at the Story House from 12-2 for our "Brown Bags and Books," with your cool new summer sandwich idea.
