Sometimes you want to be a fun mom and throw everything involving good food and nutrition to the wayside! Nothing says Yum and Fun like a Fluffernutter sandwich! But your kids can have this and still have a fairly healthy treat. Shhh, don't tell them though! My kids were brought up on whole wheat bread and as a result do not care for the soft white kind that gets all stuck in your teeth (thank God!) so using a good 100% whole wheat bread. I like Peppridge Farm 100% whole wheat as it has no high fructose corn syrup and many other whole wheat breads do, and Skippy Natural (as opposed to regular Skippy) contains no hydrgenated oil. Fluff isn't too terrible, just plain ol' corn syrup, sugar, dried egg white and vanillin. Not sure what that last ingredient is, but it must be related to vanilla. This isn't a sugar-free snack, that's for sure, but let me tell you, I would rather my kids gobble up one of these than a bologna sandwich -- Let's not go there!
