Breakfast fuels us for the day. It is always said to have breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen and dine like a pauper, whereas most of us do just the opposite. Most of us makes this mistake to skip breakfast hoping to lose weight; whereas research confirms that people who eat breakfast are the most successful at weight control. If we don't refuel at breakfast and break the overnight fast, we challenge the body as the brain searches for the fuel.
It's a high-time effort to pack kids' snack box with their favourite breakfast as there is so little time in the morning. Planning is crucial in such situations. All kids have different tastes ,which varies more often. When Noora (my doter) wants all chocolaty , Razin, my son, prefers cheesy.. But when coming to chicken, they both love it. So including chicken in their breakfast menu is the smartest choice that I make.They likes to be surprised when they open their box and a smiley sandwich can make them happy.
Chicken, boiled and shredded 3/4 cup
Apple ,grated 1/2 cup
Carrot, grated 1/2 cup
Spring onions 1/4 cup
Cut the bread slices and lettuces in round using a cookie cutter, a glass or anything similar.You can toast your bread if you need.
Mix together shredded chicken,grated apple and carrots together alongwith mayonnaise.(Use grater with small hole to grate apples) Mix in spring onions to it. Season it with salt and pepper. Your filling is ready to be sandwiched.
Spread butter on your bread slice, top it up with lettuce and then the chicken filling. You can keep one more lettuce if required. Sandwich with another slice of bread. You can either toast it or serve cold.
Be creative and serve the way your kid loves it. They eat with their eyes. :)
