Today I started a Twitter collaboration project to compile a list of sandwich fillings lunch ideas for toddlers. At present my children (3 years & 1 yr 5 mth) are turning their noses up at cooked meals however they love sandwiches.

I'm not the most imaginative of people, so I've enrolled the help of the lovely people of Twitter to get some help. Hopefully you can take these sandwich filling ideas to spice up lunch times for your kids too, maybe yourself at the same time!

These ideas will be updated on-going as they are submitted to me, you can use the contact page in the main menu.

Season the fillings

I've found that my kids like a touch of pepper sometimes, just like me
