Pinwheel sandwiches

Los Angeles, Ca, August 11th, 2016-Whether you’re a grown up or a child pinwheel sandwiches are a delicious option for lunch.

As a parent there’s nothing more discouraging than a lunch box that comes home the same way it was packed.

As parents we strive to feed our child meals they will enjoy and though some days we put more effort than others it doesn’t change the fact that new ideas for school lunches are difficult. As cute as cutting out individual ingredients for smiles and bows may be, it’s not very practical.
