Last year, when my son Cal was in first grade, he wanted a turkey sandwich with cheese and mustard packed in his lunch box every single day. I went along with this for a few months, eventually convincing him to let me add a few leaves of lettuce or baby spinach.

I always offered other options. He always insisted on his "usual." But I couldn't help but notice that most days the "usual" came back half eaten, at best. We needed a change, so I set out to come up with some new, exciting sandwich choices to break out of our turkey rut. 

If your kids are stuck on a boring sandwich,  these ideas might help them make a break from the usual.
