Cucumber Sandwiches

This quick recipe for toddlers was recommended by Laura at Call Me Laura Jane, she also happens to be the one who designed my fabulous blog!

After she told me about this easy recipe, I hurried and made it and my son loves it.
First, I shred cucumber using a grater, then I use 2 pieces of toast and some cream cheese to create the sandwich. I have read that you can either mix the cream cheese with the grated cucumber or you can spread the cream cheese on the toast first then add the cucumber. Either way makes a perfect meal for toddlers!

I end up cutting mine in very small pieces. We tried 1/8′s once and it did not work so well, I typically will rip small pieces off for my son to eat a little at a time.
I also grate enough cucumber to last me a while and put it in a Tupperware dish to save for later.
Thanks Laura, for this easy and healthy toddler recipe!
