Grilled Turkey Zucchini Sandwiches

Turkey and Avocado Zucchini Sandwiches

Back-to-school time is just around the corner, and it is never too early to start thinking about healthy school lunches for your kids. Ever since my older son developed severe food allergies, I began to get creative with making healthy (and fun) school lunches. By packing him healthy and fun lunches, he doesn’t feel bad about never having the opportunity to buy a school lunch like many of his friends in school. One of my favorite healthy and easy school lunches to make my kids is turkey zucchini sandwiches. The kids love them, and they are packed full of nutrition to give them the fuel they need to be successful in school.

Since my son has severe food allergies, I have to be extra cautious about the ingredients used to make their turkey zucchini sandwiches. It is important that I only use meats that are all-natural, nitrate/nitrite fee, hormone fee, steroid free, and have no preservatives. One of the brands that I have grown to trust feeding to my children is the Foster Farms All Natural Lunchmeat. The Foster Farms turkey does not contain wheat, milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts or soy that is perfect for children who suffer from food allergies like my son. One of the facts about the brand that I recently learned was that they use high-pressure pasteurization to eliminate bacteria and seal in pure flavor vs. using natural preservatives which clearly stands out with the flavor.
