Strawberries and Cream Sandwich


Makes 4 servings

4 ounces cream cheese

2 teaspoons orange zest

8 slices whole-wheat or nut-free multigrain bread, toasted if desired

12 medium strawberries (about 1/2 pound), thinly sliced

1 cup baby spinach leaves, lightly packed

These fruity, whole-grain treats will satisfy 
a child who likes a sweeter lunch—plus deliver a healthy dose of vitamin C and fiber. Mix it up by switching out the plain cream cheese for another soft option, like goat cheese 
or strawberry cream cheese.


1. In a medium-size bowl, stir together the cream cheese, honey, and orange zest until well blended.

2. Spread about 1 Tablespoon of the cream-cheese mixture on each slice of bread. Layer strawberry slices on four slices of bread; top with baby spinach.

3. Top with the remaining slices of bread. Slice.
