    I know some adults get bored fixing the same thing for their kids every day, and end up making "healthy" things their kids give away or throw away. Later my daughter told me how much she appreciated having what she wanted to eat every day.

    I still think she could have had a tidy income selling chocolate peanut butter sandwiches to her classmates.
    My kids aren't primal, and as an experiment this year, without asking what they want, I have made them peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwiches every day. On white bread. No complaints from either of them. Our school community is very 'crunchy eco homesteader'...so much so that some of the kids asked them where to buy white bread...

    The rest of their lunches is very primal....water, hard boiled egg, fruit, veggies, jumbo meat ball, venison pepperoni, yogurt, dried fruit & nuts, etc. I don't give them juice or 'treats' as the sandwich is the treat.

I'd never had it, because my mom wouldn't buy it, so I was jealous of those kids who could bring a 'chocolate' sandwich to school (looking back now, it was probably Nutella or something like it). One of my friends was British, but had lived in and emigrated from South Africa. Someone asked her if she knew what we were talking about and she said 'I think so' and the next day she said she had a 'chocolate' sandwich and offered me a taste. That brown shit was NOT chocolate. It was Marmite.

    Now, being of Dutch descent, I HAVE eaten chocolate sprinkles on toast. Looks like mouse turds.
    Heh. When I was in the states I offered some american friends some vegemite on toast, all while cautioning them that while it may LOOK like something similar to Nutella, it is no no way a chocolate spread, rather a yeast extract. Reception was ... poor.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    HAHA - that reminds me when I was living in the States (California). I was visiting some Kiwi friends who had American Flatmates and I had brought along with me a jar of Vegemite as a treat.

    One of them left the Vegemite Jar open on the kitchen bench and as we were having a few drinks in the lounge we all heard a yell from the kitchen and this loud American Accent say "F**K!!! WHO PUT SALT IN THE CHOCOLATE SPREAD!!" It was the funniest thing we'd heard in ages..

    I still laugh just thinking about it....
