Some of the "picky" substitutions seem be more on the picky no-no list than the thing they are replacing (lettuce) (e.g., a salad made with oranges, celery and white vinegar). I wonder if the author was working from her own children's "off limits" list. For instance, tomatoes, cucumber, mayonnaise, mustard are used frequently. These are more off limits in my house than lettuce.
Also, the author suggests combinations that look yummy when prepared, but may not stand up to the rigors of a lunchbox. For instance, sliced bananas and sliced apples. She doesn't address the extra preparation that might be involved (i.e., for apples) to make the cool open face sandwich not look nasty by noon. And, I am not even sure there is anything you can do for sliced bananas to keep them fresh. I wonder if she tested the recipes to see if they would be appealing 4-5 hours later.

Lots of good ideas in here, but also a lot of things I would never expect my kids to like or eat. I guess if you don't have picky eaters it would be good for you!Published on August 25, 2013 by Hannah
