By Family Features

August 31, 2023

Back-to-school season brings change to routines and often makes each day slightly more hectic, especially for families with little ones. This year, despite the hustle and bustle, you can make quick and easy lunches for your kids (and yourself) that are both simple and better for you. These sandwich suggestions can brighten busy school days with a taste of home.

Brighten your children's day with a fun, colorful Caterpillar Sandwich inspired by the experts at Nature's Own. This tasty snack calls for Ham, Lettuce, Cheese, Tomato,Cucumber and fresh, soft, fluffy Bread before using a cookie cutter to cut out sandwich rounds and shape them into a creepy-crawly (yet delicious) "caterpillar."

For an even simpler lunch you can enjoy at home, grab to go or send off with your little one to savor in the cafeteria, this Fluffernutter Sandwich calls for just three simple ingredients. Spread the Peanut Butter and the Marshmallow Fluff on two slices of Bread then enjoy a flavorful break from the office or classroom.

Both lunchtime favorites are made using Nature's Own Butterbread, baked with a simple buttery flavor to take sandwiches to new heights. Plus, it's made with no Artificial Preservatives, colors or flavors; no High Fructose Corn Syrup and 0 Grams of Trans Fat.
