Food Literacy Sandwich: Sunflower Seed Butter & Apple Sandwich
It’s Food Literacy Month! We’re inviting restaurants and bloggers to help us spread the word about Food Literacy Month with their own versions of a Food Literacy Sandwich. We’re also inviting kids to submit their own recipes in a contest. Let the food literacy love begin! Here’s our signature version of a Food Literacy Sandwich, which we make in class with K-5th graders.
Kids (and adults) will enjoy the sweet nutty flavor of sunflower seed butter combined with the sweet-tart crunch of the apple slices. This is a delicious, hearty sandwich that is packed full of protein, fiber and vitamins. Sunflower seed butter is a great alternative for peanut butter, serving as a replacement spread in recipes given to children with nut allergies.
We made these sandwiches with 100 K-5th grade students at a local charter school. Read all about what the kids thought of the sandwich in our curriculum update.
Serving size: 1 sandwich
- 2 slices whole wheat bread
- 2 Tablespoons sunflower seed butter
- 4 apple slices
- Place one slice of bread on a plate.
- Use a butter knife to spread the sunflower seed butter evenly over the slice of bread.
- Top the sunflower seed butter with apple slices by laying them in an even layer.
- Lay the second slice of bread on top of the apple slices.
