Today’s sandwich is an oily little fish powerhouse: smashed sardines (lightly smoked, packed in oil), sweet pickle relish, mustard, and mayo. We are a fish loving household and the kids will eat pretty much anything with scales and a tail. Sardines are a great alternative to tuna—they are tiny little fish, low on the food chain, so mercury contamination is not a concern (or, so I’ve read). I’ve also included honey whole wheat pretzel twists and farmers market fruit (strawberries and grapes). For the treat: Halloween fruit snacks from Target. “Fruit” snacks is a bit of a misnomer. They should just call them gummies.
