This whole dish is gluten free, lactose free and egg free. I generally would serve salady bits and sandwiches from 9 months but serve earlier if you feel comfortable doing so (chopping things up appropriately).
The name of this dish is inspired by the Peppa Pig episode where Peppa and George pretend to be crabs pinching their fingers and thumb together, walking sideways and shouting ‘pinch pinch’. This is our ‘go to’ impression of a crab.
It’s nice to make lunch into a fun animal or smiley face now and again 👍🏼. This sandwich contains lactose free cream cheese (as I’m lactose intolerant) on gluten free bread. I used a cookie cutter to make the circle and used the cream cheese to glue the other elements to the sandwich or plate. Mollie (3 years old) loves the extra effort put in to make lunch fun, I genuinely think she eats more too as a result! Alfie (16 months) is none the wiser!
The crab is made up of:
- legs – king prawns
- arms – red pepper and plum tomatoes
- eyes – cucumber, black olives and cream cheese
- mouth – red pepper
Served on @boboandboo bamboo dinnerware which we love!
