Christina Milian knows a clever idea when she sees one.

The singer — and mom to 4-year-old Violet — regrammed this creative take on a regular PB&J sandwich from her sister Liz’s Instagram feed.

“PB&J Sushi w/ Strawberry Coulis. This is a great way to convince kids that they like sushi,” read the original caption.

Even if you’re not angling for your little ones to dig into your spicy tuna rolls, the presentation of these pinwheel finger sandwiches may also work well for kids who are in a food rut and refusing to eat their old favorites. Sometimes, all that’s needed is a fresh (and fun!) look.

Better yet, this “sushi” couldn’t be easier to make:

1. Trim 2 slices of bread to form 2 long rectangles. (If you’re using thick-cut bread, you may need to flatten the slices with a rolling pin.)

2. Spread one side of the bread with a thin layer of peanut butter, followed by a thin layer of jelly.

3. Starting at one end, roll the bread until you’ve formed a coil.

4. Cut the roll into bite-size piece.

“Yummmm!” Christina wrote. And we couldn’t agree more.

Seriously, this is news? People have been making these for years.

Or just feed your kids actual sushi and actually be healthy. Who still eats white bread anyway?

KathyL on

This is wrong on so many levels: white bread and sugar overload. This isn’t rocket science – it’s a rolled sandwich!! Nothing creative or clever about this recipe. Must be a slow news day.

OMG people it is a cute sandwich for kids, they don’t care if it was first made 23 years ago. Get over yourselves!
