Jump-start this school year with the perfect recipe for success Start Aug 13th, Last week in Both

After a summer filled with sunny beach days and sleepovers, getting kids motivated to head back to school and adjust to a new routine is often a challenge. To make the transition a little easier for kids and parents, here are some tips and fun ideas to get creativity flowing and wake-up brains for learning. Serve up originality Inviting children to help in the kitchen is a

great way to get them thinking and building life skills. From math and measurement to nutrition and following directions, the kitchen provides an opportunity for kids to practice the skills that not only contribute to a family meal, but they can also

use in the classroom all year. Take some time to spend in the kitchen and get those creative juices flowing by encouraging your kids to use their taste buds and imaginations to whip-up something original. Now through Oct. 22, parents can enter their kids in the Ninth An- nual Jif (R) Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest (TM), which invites parents to share their kids’, ages 6 to 12, creative sandwich recipes. Last year’s winner, Rachel G. of Clovis, Calif., com- bined chicken, grapes, honey and peanut butter in a lettuce wrap to create her “PB & Fruity says ‘Let Us Rap.” Finalists go to New York to compete for a $25,000 scholarship fund.

year by encouraging kids to make a collage of all the fun activities they did over the summer. Use photos, bro- chures and souvenirs to create a family photo book, table- cloth, placemat, or calendar to reminisce about summer memories all year. Asking kids to share their collage of favorite summer activities makes great family mealtime conversation.

Make mealtime master- pieces: Let’s face it; if kids recog- nize it, they most likely will eat it. Ensure that kids are making smart choices by involving them in planning what goes go into their lunch- box. Let kids contribute to the menu for a week’s worth of lunches and practice making decisions about what foods are best for them.

Plus, make dinnertime fun and get the whole family involved. The youngest can practice measuring flour, salt or sugar, while older children can

act as sous chef. Preparing meals together gives you the opportunity to explain the importance of healthy food choices that will help kids at school and later in life. Moms – and those observing moms in action – can have a chance to get creative, too. From now through Oct. 22, the Jif (R) Moms Voice Their Choice Contest (TM) is asking moms (or those inspired by one) to submit their stories, in 250 words or less, of how they, or a mom they know, make the best choices for their families. One grand prize winner will win a seat at the judging table in New York for the live Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest event in March 2011.
