Going Back to School With Some Help from Hormel @HormelFoods #HormelFamily

Disclosure:  I am currently a member of the Hormel Foods Extended Blogger Program and this post is part of my involvement in the Group.

Last week my kids started school and it was a big change from the lazy summer we had.  Getting three kids ready and out the door is no small feat either!  It is an adjustment for me as well and I am looking for all the help I can get. Now its pretty easy but I know any day now my boys will come home with folders full of homework and both requiring my help.  Then I have my needy 3 year old and dinner to make all at a reasonable time!

Well here are some great tips and ideas from Hormel that I am looking forward to trying out!

Deli Meat Days: Enjoy a stress-free morning with your kids after packing their lunch with a fresh Hormel® Natural Choice® ham or turkey sandwich. With zero preservatives and no artificial colors or MSG, Hormel® Natural Choice® deli meats are a fresh way to give your little one a protein boost during the school day. And remember—deli meat isn’t just for lunch! How about this Deli Meat, Egg and Avocado Toast recipe for breakfast!


After-School Pizza Party: You’ve made it through the first week of school—treat your kids and yourself with a homemade pizza party! Whether for a play date or bonding time, making pizza with fun toppings likeHormel® pepperoni, sausage crumbles or HORMEL® CURE 81 ® Cubed Ham is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Peanut Butter Cookie Surprise: Surprise your kids with fresh baked peanut butter oatmeal cookies! Slip these cookies—made with SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter—and an encouraging note from mom or dad in their lunchbox to keep the homesickness at bay!

On-the-Go Snack Ideas: Shuffling the kids from school to extracurricular activities is chaotic enough without having to worry about preparing a pre-dinner snack. Hormel® REV® Wraps are perfect for your fast-paced schedule, and are an easy way to get everyone out the door with the protein they need without spoiling dinner!
