Chickpea mayo sandwich filler and cassava crisps.

As the kids head back to school, a lunchbox that both they and you can tuck into is ideal. The sandwich filler can be placed into any type of bread, whatever is easier for those small hands. The cassava crisps are both tasty and healthy as they are baked in the oven.
