You can't compost PB&J? I know putting a huge amount of meat and oils into the compost is bad, because of animals, but I've never heard of not putting peanut butter or jelly into the compost.


Back on topic, I can only eat crust if it has sandwich filling. I'll spread all the way to the edges and put more than is really needed just to have some fall out so I can eat it with the crusts at the end.

Ooo, I just thought of a pretty idea. Cut the middle out from a sandwich. Then, in the hole piece, put another piece of lettuce in it. You get a green shape in the middle of the bread! And for extra decoration, set the shape piece onto a piece of lettuce.

Yes, to compensate for the dryness factor.

I don't eat the top and bottom crust from my bread or sandwiches (but I will eat the side crust, weird huh? Have always done it this way!), my partner always eats all of her bread crust and will eat the butt ends of the bread too, if that's all we have. So, when it comes to my kids I won't care if they eat their crusts or not, it'll be up to them. The place we plan to use for daycare requires them to eat their crusts if they have a snadwich so I guess it'll be their battle! :-)

How do they enforce that requirement?

The crust can be very unhealthy due to acrylamide formation.

I never knew eating the crusts on pizza and sandwiches was such a big deal.

I often don't eat the crusts. Quite often.

Then you only get one piece because you didn't finish your firsts.

I can honestly say this is not a topic I have ever even thought about! My kids eat until they are full. I don't inspect their plates to see what's left.

This can be solved by cutting the apple or pear into 4ths or 8ths, and throwing the core parts away.

Squares? Man, I don't get your dd. I even cut my sandwiches into triangles now. Mini-triangle sandwiches rule!

Not if the person throws a hissy fit about wanting a big pear/fruit and refuses to eat it once cut.

My son eats his crusts, my little girl sometimes does, sometimes doesn't want to. I wish they would all the time- somewhere along the line, I heard the were the most nutritous part, so whether or not it's true, it drives me crazy when they don't. That being said, I can't force them, because I can't seem to force MYSELF to eat the crusts on MY bread,

It is the carcinogenic formed when starch-based foods are heated at high temp. I remember the researcher on one study saying his kids would never eat another french fry- its pretty toxic stuff although i try not to think of it too much!! Found in grain-based food esp. (cereal, bread crust, crackers). You can reduce your acrylamide production in baking by keeping the heat lower when baking and taking out bread before crust gets really dark. and by not toasting so not eating crusts can be a healthy choice.

well, there ya go. Maybe I'll have to start encouraging my kids to NOT eat their crust... Like, you can have seconds or dessert if you don't eat it all
