Arnold Healthfull Bread Giveaway

Every day we struggle to adopt healthy living standards, but it’s actually amazing how easy it can be if you just take baby steps!  One very important baby step (and giant leap) you can take is switching your white bread to a 100% Whole Wheat Bread like Arnold® Healthfull® Bread.

I was recently challenged to try Arnold Healthfull Bread.  I took up the challenge because I’ve always try to convert my husband to whole wheat bread.  Anytime you’re at risk or diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, or obesity, one of the first things doctors say is to cut sugar out of your diet, including the sugar in white bread and to start eating whole grains.  While hubby and I are still “relatively young” and in pretty good shape, I say it’s never too early to start trying to adopt healthy habits!

Arnold Healthfull Bread is certified by the American Heart Association

Arnold® Healthfull® variety is made with 100 percent whole grain flour, is a good source of fiber, and contains no high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, or preservatives, and it’s just 80 calories per slice!

Arnold Whole Wheat Bread

When our son’s not around, my husband and I could practically live off sandwiches:   Ham & Cheese Sandwiches, Turkey, Chicken Salad, Tuna Salad, and Egg Sandwiches….we love the all!

If you use the RIGHT KIND of ingredients, all of these can be healthy.  Start with the Whole Wheat Bread for those heart healthy carbs and vitamins.  Then you supplement the bread with a little protein. (Lean meats are a good option, and highly processed meats should be limited.)  Add cheese for a serving of dairy.  Then add lettuce, tomato, or other veggies to your sandwich (or serve up a small side salad).

But regardless of the kind of sandwich you like to eat, just swapping the white bread to Arnold Whole Wheat will make such a difference in your overall health!


Peanut Butter and Banana Toast

I used Arnold Bread to create Peanut Butter & Banana toast.  When it comes to healthy eating, this is one snack or meal that offers SO MUCH in such a small package.  AND it’s kid-friendly too!  Apart from the whole wheat bread, the peanut butter and banana are heart healthy and are great sources of potassium, fiber, and other essential vitamins.  I call it a Quick Power Breakfast!

Alternatives – If you don’t like peanut butter, a couple of substitutes I enjoy are hazelnut spread and strawberry jelly, and of course, you can always use strawberries, apples, or other fruits in place of the banana!

  1. Lisa Brown says

    Make food colorful and cut into fun shapes to make it more appealing.

  2. My kids will try mostly anything in sandwich form – that’s my secret! I’ve gotten them to admit their love for both lettuce and avocado this way, ha!

  3. I like to incorporate new foods into dishes that they are familiar with.

  4. My favorite tip is to make fruit smoothie and add veggies.

  5. steve weber says

    I would make a nice turkey BLT with the steel oats and honey bread.

  6. One of the tips is to be a positive example. When parents eat healthy kids usually start eating healthy too.

  7. I try to offer a variety of healthy choices and let the kids choose. I also let the kids help me shop and fix dinner. They are more inclined to eat it if they help prepare it.

  8. They are actually pretty good about liking a lot of healthier foods but fun shapes are always helpful.

  9. Mary Happymommy says

    We make it fun! For example, ants on a log makes for a fun snack (celery stalk with peanut butter and raisins).

  10. Nannypanpan says

    I cut things into fun shapes to get them interested

  11. shelly peterson says

    The beat way to make sure they get their veggies and fruits is to make smoothies

  12. It helps if it can be eaten without utensils, eaten outside on the picnic table, has glops of cheese on it!

  13. I’m lucky because my daughter almost always just prefers the healthy thing; more than I do actually. she’s called the amazing vegetable eating child.

  14. Amanda Sakovitz says

    I make a variety of veggies to switch things up.

  15. Angelica M says

    I like to cut fruits veggies and cheeses in small pieces! The colors make them fun to eat!

  16. My tip is to lead by example. If you want your kids to eat healthy, make sure you eat healthy yourself.

  17. I guess I just exposed my kids to as many fruits and veggies as I could when they were young. That way they’ve developed a pretty wide pallete!

  18. Melissa S says

    My best tip for getting my son to eat healthy is to keep a few cut up veggies in the fridge. If they are ready and available he will choose them for a snack.

  19. Birdiebee says

    I put a lot of veggies into stews, soups and casseroles to get the grandkids to eat them. They also like raw veggies and fruit which I always dress up with something fun or into something fun. I call these “Fun foods kids will eat”.

  20. Jennifer Marie says

    I offer finger foods and small portions so they do not feel overwhelmed in trying something new.

  21. Barbara Montag says

    What works well for us is we always say you don’t have to like it or eat it all.
    Just try it.
    thank you
