Monday: "Hey James, what do you want for lunch?" "PBJ!"
Tuesday: "What do you want for lunch James?" "PBJ!"
Wednesday: "James, do you want a quesadilla for lunch?" "NO! PBJ!"
Thursday: "I made you grilled cheese" "I don't want grilled cheese! I want PBJ!" (insert hangry toddler meltdown)
Friday: I'm just making PBJ, resistance is futile.

 

We've all heard - 'they go together like peanut butter and jelly.' What they really mean is toddlers are to PB & J sandwiches as (insert your favorite comparison phrase here). PB & J's are a fan favorite over here - easy to make, almost always eaten with no hassle and delicious enough that both you and your toddler can munch away in communal snack-time happiness.

The downside? Sticky fingers, but one could argue toddlers are just sticky anyways, and peanut butter and jelly showing up in the oddest places...how on earth did this end up down your siblings back?! But these little sandwiches carve their place in the annals of childhood memories.

Regardless of the day, if there was a PB & J sandwich waiting for you on a plate when you get home alongside carrot sticks and apple slices - not once did anyone ever say 'pass.' Except those of you with peanut allergies, of which we're sorry! Our kids may eat too many PB & J's per week, but...how many is too many anyways?

Fun fact for your day! Americans eat an estimated 2,984 PB&J sandwiches in their lifetime* - that stacks up to be taller than the Statue of Liberty. The passion for the PB & J really is for life!
