I have two boys who eat like they’re training for the NFL. Seriously, they are never full and always like to end their meals with a sandwich or a banana. When we’re home on weekends, an hour after lunch they suddenly need another meal and honestly, I think my older son should be able to make himself a quick snack – he is almost nine and I’m trying to encourage him to be more independent. I’ve recently discovered easy-to-make sandwiches that are packed in protein and can satisfy the hunger of my always-starving sons.
Sandwich Bros. flatbread pocket Chicken Melts are made with 100% white-meat chicken and Wisconsin American cheese. They’re super-easy to make – just take out of the plastic wrapping, wrap in paper towel and microwave for about a minute. The protein helps with satiety and I like to add cut-up veggies for extra vitamins and fiber.
My sons tried them as an afternoon snack and loved them! The sandwiches are individually packed in halves, so you can make two halves per person or just one, for those who are not very hungry. These are also great for playdates and sleepovers as they’re so easy and quick to make.
I love that each sandwich (which is really a half) has 11 grams carbs and 11 grams protein. Protein-to-carb ratio is important as too many carbs can make you sluggish. My sons are always running around and playing all types of sports so I wouldn’t want them to eat “empty carbs” and have a “food coma” before they play. Two sandwiches (two halves) are 22 grams carbs and 22 grams protein, so my kids are covered!
