Back to School Lunchspiration: Checkerboard Sandwiches

My kids went back to school today. They are lunch boxers so I will continually be looking for “lunchspiration” . We’ve shared our GOLDFISH SANDWICHES, and PB APPLE SANDWICHES & NUTELLA “SUSHI” now we’ve come across this adorable checkerboard sandwich. It’s simple to pull together {especially in those morning when we’re trying to get out of the door last minute, please tell me I’m not the only one ; ) } and a sandwich that the kids will get a kick out of eating. There are two variations of this sandwich after the jump! Checkerboard Sandwiches {Recipes & Photo compliments of Sara Moulton for the Grain Foods Foundation}
