My kids love making sandwiches out of crackers.  There’s something about the ritual of making it.  They get excited about what they are going to put inside the sandwich and it becomes a step by step game for them. They also love the crunch!

Sometimes, they get slight skin reactions from snacks that have wheat and gluten in them.  You don’t know what you’re buying when you get the premade processed stuff. But I found a way to get them to make these fun snack sandwiches by themselves using fresh ingredients that are wheat and gluten free.

You shouldn’t have to settle for taste or variety when it comes to snacking so I got some Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins to make the cracker sandwiches with. Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins don’t have artificial flavors or coloring and are made with real California almonds.

I also buy the pre cut cheddar cheese so they can just reach for it without using knives.  I slice some tomato and cucumber and put it in a storage container in the refrigerator.

But Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins are also available at Kroger, Ahold, Wakefern, Target, Shoprite, and Safeway/Albertsons.

It’s so simple and so fun and my boys feel like they are taking care of themselves.  They want to be self sufficient. This is the best way to start.
