My son likes ham and cheese sandwiches but the most he will eat is a slice of bread if it's with sliced cheese even if in cute shapes. However if it's with ham alone, he can eat two slices. So I gathered that it got to do with cheese.
I tried Parmesan Cheese and guess what? He can eat more than three slices! Sure he likes it. It smells nice and is crunchy too!

Today we had cut-out little men and flowers (not shown here) on the remaining bread. It was really easy to make too.
Just butter the bread. Have a bowl of grated Parmesan Cheese ready. You may want to use unsalted butter since Parmesan Cheese alone is salty enough. Then press the bread with butter side down to the cheese. Shake off excess cheese. After which, you can toast it in your oven, cheese side up.
I was too lazy to bring out my oven so I used frying pan instead. Toast the plain side first then turn over to toast the side with cheese. Remove them once they are slightly brown. Cool them on the rack before giving them to your kids.
Oh! Your kids can do this too. It's fun! Just remember to do the toasting for them.
