Put an Apple on It (Instead of with It)

Chef and caterer Kate McMillan, who has three daughters, makes sandwiches with fruit for everyone in her family. Some of her favorites include mashed avocado with sliced Asian pear or pomegranate seeds; strawberry jam, strawberry slices and goat cheese; honey, almond butter and banana; and apple, Cheddar and peanut butter. (If peanut and almond butters aren't allowed at your child's school, try NoNuts Golden Peabutter, I.M. Healthy SoyNut Butter, Omega Nutrition Pumpkin Seed Butter or SunButter Sunflower Seed Spread.)
