International Children’s Day

Educo

Educo, a Non-Profit Organization, is worried about our children’s nutrition as we can not turn a blind eye believing that malnutrition only concerns third world countries. The truth is that malnutrition affects 25% of the children right here in Spain. Just to give you a ball park figures, 2.5 million children are living in poverty. There is no doubt that the economic crisis has touched all of us on some level but unfortunately children being the most vulnerable have taken an important toll. There are currently 500,000 poorer children than in 2007 and 1 out of every 4 does not eat even one well-balanced meal a day. This is definitely food for thought.

Educo has come up with a plan; let’s give families ideas on how to give a child a balanced diet. A sandwich can be a proper meal and it can be made on a low budget of 2 euros.

This is my sandwich…

Ingredients:

– bread

– goat cheese

– anchovies

– preserved cristal peppers

– chives

Instructions:

Lightly toast the bread then add the ingredients. I like to add the cheese on first so that it melts in a bit with the bread. Then I add the peppers, anchovies and finally I top it off with some finely chopped chives.

I would like to thank my husband who took interest in this project and ever so kindly made the bread and took the photos.
