When you ask your child what they want for lunch, and they say grilled cheese, you are probably thinking that is not the healthiest choice right. If you are, you need to change your thoughts. Grilled cheese is excellent for young children to have for lunch as a sandwich because it contains the nutrients a child needs to help maintain and grow strong healthy bones and teeth. Not only that it keeps their tummies full because you are giving them protein, which is essential for energy and building lean strong healthy muscles.
The nutrients in cheese and bread alone help keep the nervous system and brain healthy so it can develop properly. However, whole grain and organic cheese are always best ingredients to use for making a grilled cheese sandwich. After all, you do not want to be feeding your children preservatives, artificial growth hormones, dyes and other unnatural ingredients.
When a grilled cheese sandwich is made from purely organic ingredients, it is one of the healthiest options to give your children to eat at lunchtime. Along with some veggie sticks and slices of fruit too as well. After all, a well-balanced meal included fruits, vegetables, protein and grains.
Remember your child is growing and needs all the nutrients they can possibly get. So, the next time your child wants a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, grill one up using organic whole foods and you can know for sure your child is eating a healthy sandwich that will nourish his belly, bones, and brain.
How to Make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich
To make a grilled cheese sandwich you will need some soften organic raw butter, organic American cheese and organic whole grain bread. If your child likes tomatoes, why not sneak a slice of that into the sandwich as well to help give they a dose of fruits too. You will also need a heated up skillet pan and a spatula for flipping. To make the grilled cheese sandwich take two slices of bread and coat one side of them with butter. Then, place the cheese between the slices of bread on the sides without the butter on them. Place the sandwich butter side down in the pan and grill it up into a nice golden toasty color. Then flip and repeat until the other side is golden brown and crispy too. Once both sides are golden brown the cheese in the middle should be melted. After, you will have a tasty grilled cheese sandwich to serve up to your little one, but don’t forget serving up some veggie stick and slices of fruit along the side of it too. Oh, and do not forget to make yourself a sandwich too. After all, parents get hungry to and need nourishing.
