Mealtime Magic: Nutrition Sandwiches (and Contest)

Kids perform better in school with the proper nutrition, but how do you make sure they get a well-balanced and nutritious lunch? Health authorities recommend children ages 4 to 13 need 40 - 48 grams of whole grains each day and sandwiches made with whole grain breads provide a host of essential nutrients. Plus, they’re a perfect go-to-lunch choice for busy moms on the go. That said, kids can be pretty picky, so making their lunches exciting and fun could be the difference in your child eating what you packed or trading their lunches with other kids.
Not sandwich savvy and not sure how to make a nutritious sandwich your children will love?  Nature’s Harvest® bread has teamed up with Emmy-nominated cooking show host, mom and author Kelsey Nixon, for the Nature’s Harvest Back-to-School Sandwich Art Contest, to encourage moms to have a little whole grain fun with their kids’ lunches.
Contest highlights:

      The top 10 semi-finalist entries will be posted for online voting from Sept. 14 -Sept. 20, 2015
