Breakfast Wafflewich Bento Box

Breakfast for lunch is always a hit with kiddos. This fruity “wafflewich” is stuffed with pineapple and SunGold kiwi for a fun tropical spin on a sandwich (even non-sandwich eaters will love this one!).

Nutrition Tip: An excellent source of vitamin C, pineapple got its name from the Spanish word for “pinecone” thanks to its prickly skin. One cup of pineapple packs as much vitamin C as a medium orange!

Tip: cut the pineapple and SunGold kiwi into thin slices and don’t layer on too much cream cheese to keep this sandwich from getting too messy.

  1. Thanks for the idea. I am going to try this substituting strawberries for pineapple with the kiwi and cream cheese in the wafflewich for the one with an allergy.  

    One tablespoon cream cheese is a small enough portion for most people with mild or moderate lactose intolerance. There is an organic lactose-free cream cheese for people with more severe intolerance and a few dairy-free options that open this recipe up to people with dairy allergies too.

      Strawberries are a great substitution! Most fruits will work well here 🙂

      Agreed – there are some great dairy-free cream cheese alternatives if you have an allergy. Feel free to use whatever one works best for you!

  2. Amanda, in the photo you show the cantaloupe Crispy Green Crispy Fruit. Is that the fruit variety you used for nutritional information to calculate the total for the recipe? 

    • Amber Gray

      Yes, all ingredients listed are accounted for in the nutritional information.
