This one is a twist on bagels and cream cheese because we are using Laughing Cow light spreadable swiss cheese.  We like it a little better because the hint of tang from the Swiss (there’s really not much at all compared to Swiss slices, for example) is just enough to go well with the sweet from the preserves.  As with all jelly choices, we try to buy the no-sugar-added, organic preserves rather than the preservative and sugar-laden alternatives.

The trick here is to keep the bagels tight in the container so they don’t slip around.  You could alternatively send the jelly in a little covered container along with a spreader so they can add the jelly at the table.

I sent him with some organic strawberries and whole-wheat Goldfish crackers and some VFusion by V8.
