Do your kids know the art of making a good sandwich?


In just weeks away, Jamie Oliver- the British Celebrity Chef & children’s food education pioneer- along with his 1600 global ambassadors are stepping outside the box of peanut butter & jelly and salami & cheese, and making veggie sandwiches with kids all around the world, on May 15th, 2015- Food Revolution Day.

Care to join?!

There’s gotta be SOME vegetables your kids eat.  I have two girls, who have their own individual preference of vegetables, so their sandwiches will look different-  and that’s okay!  You and i have our personal preferences too!

I can’t wait until the photos start rolling in on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter to see everyone’s creative take on it! Upload yours using the hashtag #FoodRevolutionDay.

My family will start with a blank canvas of a toasted bagel covered in poppy seeds, sesame seeds & sunflower seeds- which we’ll top with whipped, plain cream cheese.  And then we will whack out on vegetables from there.

I’m adding grilled, marinated artichoke hearts, zucchini squash, roasted red pepper, basil pine nut pesto, romaine lettuce and chopped chives.




My youngest daughter will add cucumber, spinach, tomato, cottage cheese, &  lettuce, while my oldest will grab the artichokes, lettuce, carrot, apple, cauliflower, hummus, and pesto.  Daddy will make one too!

What will yours look like?  Here is the official recipe for Jamie’s Squash It Sandwich.
