Hannah looked curious when I was having lunch the other day so I decided to make her a version of what I was having. High in fibre and calcium, this was one recipe she thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end. Check out how we hit all four food groups!

Open Face Grilled Cheese Sandwich
1) Toast 1 slice of whole wheat bread.
2) Place thin slices of cheddar cheese on the toast.
3) Microwave for 10 seconds or until the cheese melts (not so grilled, but same idea).
4) On top, sprinkle some shredded broiled chicken and cooked green peppers.

You can easily substitute cheddar for mozzarella or marble cheese. Your baby may also enjoy mushrooms, tomatoes, or cucumber on the sandwich. Protein alternates include turkey, ham, salmon, or ground beef.

VOILA! You've got all four food groups in a quick and fun meal. I like to cut it into very tiny pieces so that Hannah can practice picking them up herself.
