Convience Without High Fructose Corn Syrup!!!

My son loves his PB&J sandwiches.  I would often buy the kind Smucker's makes.  They are yummy.  He loves them and they even have ones made with whole wheat.  They look like this:
One problem, flip over the box and you will notice HFCS is right there as one of the top ingredients...  So I made my own P&J sandwiches.  Very healthy ones and I can freeze them and then pop them in his lunch in the am!!! 

What's in them: 

Nature's Pride is one of the only breads on the shelf that I could find that did not have HFCS in it and had only natural ingredients.

Polamer All Fruit Jelly

Naturally More PB&J (He gets some flax seed and doesn't even know it)

Cut with a sandwich cutter and you have a ready to bag sandwich.  Place in a ziploc baggie and freeze.  Take out of freezer in the am and place in lunch box.  EASY an no HFCS or other "not so good for you" ingredients!

That is a great tip. My son doesn't like bread. He does not eat it, even without the crust. But I will keep this in mind for my daughter. So far she will eat anything.

Thanks for the bread tip. I had no idea! I'm so confused when it comes to breads and carbs. Everyone recommends the Ezekiel bread...but my family doesn't eat it. This looks like something they would eat.
