Grilled cheese tomato sandwich

Grilled cheese tomato sandwich is my son’s specialty. It is one of my kids favorite things to have as a snack right after school. My son is the one that normally likes to help in the kitchen so since these are pretty easy he likes to make them from start to finish.

I love getting my kids in the kitchen even for simple things such as these grilled cheese tomato sandwiches. Little by little this has become an important tradition in my house. Teaching my kids the importance of cooking and nourishing their bodies correctly, especially as they continue to grow, it is of most importance to me.

Also, as a mom, ensuring my kids have access to healthy hydration options, such as water, puts a smile on my face. We all know how many sugary drinks kids like to drink and how unhealthy these can be.

Did you know that a 2015 survey conducted by NESTLÉ PURE LIFE found kids who drink 4+ glasses of water per day are more likely to frequently exhibit healthy habits, such as:
    • Getting their own water when thirsty.
    • Eating their fruits and vegetables at meal times without reminders.

There is no other type of drink that I rather see my kids consume that is why water is always our number one.

Water does not need to be boring! It is an essential part of life and helps provide hydration as your family takes on the day. From the morning bus ride to the afternoon soccer game and family dinner at home, Nestlé® Pure Life® Brand is thinking outside the bottle to make water an exciting part of your family’s beverage routine. With an interactive contest and kid-friendly bottle designs that encourage families to reach for water first, NESTLÉ PURE LIFE makes drinking water more than just a healthy hydration choice.

As always, grilled cheese sandwiches are pretty versatile. I have used pesto sauce to spread over the bread before to add a bit more flavor but you can just leave the sandwiches as is. Either way, grilled cheese tomato sandwiches are the bomb. Easy, delicious and super fast to make, and don’t forget, water is always the best way to hydrate.
