Panini & Hot Sandwiches

*All paninis and hot sandwiches had aspects that made it difficult to choose which one to recommend. Be aware that all of these sandwiches had 0.5gm trans fat in the whole portion except the Spicy Asian Pork and Steak and Cheese sandwiches.

*Highest total fat content: Club Panini (36 gm) // Highest saturated fat content: Club Panini (15 gm) // Highest carbohydrate content: Cuban Press Panini (183 gm! – equivalent to 12 pieces of bread!) // Highest sugar content: Spicy Asian Pork (23 gm)  // Highest sodium content: Cuban Press Panini (3489 mg – daily limit should be 2400 mg!)

Kids Menu

*Be aware that the Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (on both the Mom’s White and Harvest Bread) have 0.5 gm trans fat!

*Recommend avoiding the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and making them at home instead! Each whole sandwich has 95-105 gm carbohydrates and 46-47 gm sugar alone, depending on the bread used.

Choose the Ham or Turkey sandwiches for a healthier option for your kids!
