    What about if you gave him pita triangles or mini pitas and he dipped them in peanut butter? Instead of a pb sandwich Reply

    It's a good idea but he just doesn't like it. He'd eat the pita and leave the PB. :( Reply

    maybe! I don't focus on meat/no meat just protien so I don't think he's ever really thought of it before. Reply

    I have a bag of edamame that I have not cooked yet. I have never tried it but heard it is the snack of snacks. I am going to cook it this weekend so I have some for my adult lunch box! Reply
