    One sandwich filling my kids love is honey and sultanas. Great for taking to school when you’re not allowed to bring nut products, etc.

    One great way to jazz up peanut butter is to make a PB sandwich, then buy hot chips at lunch time. Put them on said sandwich – oh yum! My mum used to do this all the time as a kid and it became our familys Sunday lunch tradition. Fresh bread, peanut butter and hot chips! the PB melts a bit and goes all nice and gooey :D
