Toasted Ham and Cheese Bagel Sandwiches

Thin bagels are perfect for smaller appetites and are easier to eat as part of a sandwich. Make a complete lunch or breakfast meal by pairing this sandwich with baby carrots or orange sections and a cup of low-fat milk to meet over half of most kids' daily calcium needs.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
