Nut Butter Sandwiches

The basics: 2 slices bread; 2 tablespoons nut butter, such as natural peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter

The upgrade: Berries

Perk up nut butter by adding 1/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries. The fruity flavor mimics a PB&J while giving you a great way to include fresh fruit in your child's lunch. Your kid probably won't even notice that sugary jelly has been replaced by a whole food.
