School is in session and sending my kids with the same lunch everyday is a bit boring (for them and me!). This mini ham and cheese waffle sandwich recipe is a great alternative to your typical school lunch. You can make these up in advance and keep them in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to use them.

  6. Once the waffle is finished, remove it and let it cool.

  7. Use a cookie cutter if desired to cut out the sandwiches or leave them as they are. (I wasn’t sure if my boys would mind bringing hearts to school, so we cut ours. 😉 )

I feel so fortunate that my children are able to have a healthy meal or snack anytime they are hungry, but I know there are thousands of children who go without, especially in the summer when school meal programs aren’t available.

Bar-S has made a commitment to help knock out childhood hunger.  They have partnered with No Kid Hungry and have pledged to provide 1 Million meals by the end of 2017 to feed kids during the summer months when they don’t have access to free school lunches.
