Recipe Madelene Silva, Grade 3
WINNER of the 2012 Kids’ Food Literacy Sandwich Contest!

2012 Kids’ Food Literacy Sandwich Contest Winner: “Strawberry Love”

Name: Madelene Silva

Age: 8

Grade: 3

School: B. Gale Wilson, Fairfield, CA

Entry: “Strawberry Love”

This sandwich represents food literacy because it helps the environment because you’re using the whole strawberry except for the tops so there is less garbage. It also helps the environment because you don’t have to use gas to fly it all the way to the store. It helps your health because it gives you vitamins and energy. I learned that there is a whole bunch of different kinds of peanut butter.

All ingredients available at the Davis Farmers Market:

  • 2 slices honey multigrain bread
  • 3 medium strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. creamy almond butter
  • 2 tsp. honey

Spread the almond butter and honey on one slice of bread. Top with the sliced strawberries and add the second slice of bread.
