Building Your Sandwich-On-a-Stick

This is an extremely healthy meal that you'll never get bored of!

Whichever version you choose, it’s simple to make in just a few steps! First, slice any fruit, vegetable, cheese, or meat that you need. You’ll also want to cut your bread into quarters. Once your bread is cut, you can top with any ingredients that cannot be slid onto a stick, such as peanut butter, nutella, cream cheese, or hummus. Then, start sliding and stacking! Start with the bread, making sure to put the side with toppings on the inside, then add more ingredients. You can add two sandwiches to each stick, so for example, the order could be bread, cheese, meat, veggie, bread, and then starting over again with the cheese. Have fun!
