Healthy or unhealthy

How many of them like marmite?

If so do you spread it thin {like me, scraped on then off again sort of thing} or thicker {like DH does, like other spreads}?

Do they like Bovril?

How often would they have it?

What about Jam, what is their favourite flavour and how often would they have it?

DO they have salad in their sandwich, ie lettuce and tomato?

Without eggs or nuts please.

Thank you

you are funny kanga

but fwiw the current fave is marmite, quite thick, no butter (), no salad. Then a tub of carrots and cucumber on the side.

Enid Tue 12-Jul-05 09:11:56

oh and atm it has to be in a Hovis golden wholemeal roll

either ham/turkey/chicken. or thinly spread marmite with butter. nothing green.

Ds has peanut butter or cucumber in sandwiches for school. I don't buy jam but he'd have it if I did over those two I'm sure! No, he wouldn't eat lettuce or tomato, although dd loves and scoffs tomatoes happily. Dd likes marmite, ds not so keen. I don't buy Bovril either but ooh, I like it, might have to start! If they do an organic one, bet they don't.

organic Bovril

what a contradiction in terms

I suppose it could be made from organic bone shavings and hair

dd1 (5) likes best tuna with mayo (cheap mayo, not including egg) and sweetcorn or cucumber. she likes variety though not this every day.

dd2 (3) likes cheese with or without marmite (no salad in hers). she also likes variety, mainly peanut butter for a change.

dd3 (1) likes everything. all 3 love marmite thick or thin.

dd's is nutella.
as was mine and my dads when we were kids. actually my dad eats a whole loaf of bread at work, no joke, and half of the sandwiches have chocolate spread on them.

DS1 likes butter - that's all
DS2 likes marmite and Dairylea, sometimes together.

Thank you

bovril is now yeast based, not meat. i think thats what dh said anyway.

Grated cheese, finely chopped celery and peppers bound with half mayo and half greek yoghurt. Variations round that theme in their packed lunches.

I like to make sure a sandwich filling is wet enough to counteract the dryness of bread.

DS loves marmite & margerine on cheddars (the McVites biscuits), in his lunch box, instead of a sarnie.

He will eat salad cream and lettuce/raw cabbage, had it with toast for breakfast the other day.... would probably go for marmite & lettuce, actually.

I like giving him jam as a fruit serving (we buy unsweetened jam), but he gets bored of the same thing more than 1 day/row.

Ours both like bovril, but neither would dream of taking it to school because of a few adverse vocal reactions of friends! Incidently, bovril in this country is now made without beef!!!!
They take ham (yawn) sandwiches to school. If we run out they'll have cheese or ds1 will have tuna.

Aero Tue 12-Jul-05 09:24:37

Snap misdee! Is true.

expatinscotland Tue 12-Jul-05 09:25:15

Humous with red pepper. She LOVES it!

TracyK Tue 12-Jul-05 09:25:17

blended chicken. mayo and spring onion. or cheese and avacado, or cheese and pear. But usually is eaten inside out - filling first then bread after!

gingerbear Tue 12-Jul-05 09:25:53

salmon or ham or marmite or strong cheddar but definately no butter. Salad is fit only for slugs and jam belongs on biscuits not bread

gingerbear Tue 12-Jul-05 09:28:59

Don't mention Bovril anywhere near toothache.....

Is it still made with beef where you are hausfrau?

gingerbear Tue 12-Jul-05 09:34:28

Housefrau, you need emergency red cross parcels of marmite sending from UK before you are bankrupt!

RTKangaMummy Tue 12-Jul-05 09:36:30

I thought Bovril was with beef and marmite with veggies

Marmite thin and Bovril thick

Also hot bovril drink on a cold winters night <<yum>>
