Are apples always making their way back home hole in the bottom of your little ones' lunchbags? Try an apple sandwich and see what happens...
Sandwich them with trail mix, oat meal, raisins, chocolate chips or whatever tasty fillings you have kicking around the pantry! Make sure you use school safe "peanut butter" substitute such as Wow Butter.
