Do you cut the crusts off your kid's sandwiches?

 My son is in the fifth grade and his classmate came over for lunch one day recently.
The kid hesistated when I brought his sandwich to the table. He quietly asked if I would cut the crusts off. I never cut DS's crust off to avoid this happening.
Do you cut the crusts?

No.  Generally my kids don't eat the crust but, unless I use a sandwich cutter (in a cute shape) they get the crust along with the middle of the bread.

No but if a child wanted it I would, my dd got in a phase for a short time she wanted hers that way

 heck no!!  if they don't want the crust they can eat around it or pick it off themselves, which is what my daughter does as she won't eat the crust on most breads.

I don't cut it off but they can eat around it. I don't mind that. Usually we serve sandwiches with soup and they just dip the ends into their soup to make it yummy.

 No. To me it is wasting bread

I do cut the crusts off of my dd's sandwiches but she can do it herself as well. I can't imagine her ever asking anyone else to do it for her.

I cut the crusts off with scissors.
