Kid-Friendly Snack And Meal Ideas Using Organic Bread

If you're looking for a healthier, chemical-free alternative to traditional bread, look for one made of all-organic ingredients, such as wheat flour, yeast and honey. Some organic breads also incorporate other types of whole grain flours into their recipes. Because it's both wholesome and delicious, organic bread can take center stage in a wide variety of kid-friendly snacks and meals.

Organic bread is similar to its classic counterpart in that it can be made with a variety of ingredients, including cranberries, nuts or even chocolate chips, to become either a sweet or savory treat. It's also versatile in that it can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Always keeping fresh, healthy bread on hand in your kitchen will ensure plenty of fast and easy food options for your kids. Although they can enjoy it on its own by the slice, the bread may also be worked into numerous easy-to-eat recipes.

Here are some child-approved snack and meal ideas using organic bread.


1. Mini Sandwiches

If your kids are feeling peckish in between meals, treat them to a choice of mini sandwiches, which are kid-friendly in that they're small and and crust-free. Start by trimming the crusts off of the bread fancy tea sandwich-style, and then assembling the snacks using any type of healthy filing.

Filling ideas include almond butter and all-natural jam, cucumber and cream cheese, mozzarella and sliced cherry tomatoes, and homemade chicken salad. You can even make several at a time and have them conveniently ready to go in your refrigerator for a day or two. 

2. Avocado Toast

Both kids and adults appreciate the combination of crunchy toast and creamy avocado, which is delicious when seasoned with just a dash of salt and pepper. You can make the toast more filling or even turn it into a lunch by topping it with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, or carrots. As a whimsical touch, cut the bread into fun shapes, such as hearts or stars, before toasting.


1. French Toast

Kids love French toast in the morning or even as a breakfast-for-dinner meal, and you can make a healthier version starting with organic bread. Instead of serving it with sugar-laden artificial syrup, top the toast with pure maple syrup or honey instead. Blueberries, bananas, or strawberries also add kid-friendly taste and color.

2. Build-Your-Own-Pizza

A build-your-own-pizza bar is perfect for kids' birthday parties or even as a Friday night treat. Start with sliced organic French bread, and then top it with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese shreds, and any combination of fresh, healthy toppings. Some ideas include diced tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, chopped onions, regular or vegetarian sausage or pepperoni, and red, yellow and orange sweet peppers.
