Salem Community Patriot 10 - August 20, 2010
Jump-start this school year with the perfect recipe for success
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.

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 en- couraging 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 Annual 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 Clo- vis, Calif., combined chicken, grapes, honey and peanut but- ter in a lettuce wrap to create her “PB & Fruity says ‘Let Us Rap.” Finalists go to New York to compete for a $25,000 schol- arship fund.

ily photo book, tablecloth, 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 rec- ognize it, they most likely will eat it. Ensure that kids are making smart choices by involving them in plan- ning what goes go into their lunchbox. Let kids contrib- ute to the menu for a week’s worth of lunches and prac- tice 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.
Open to legal residents of the 50 United States
and D.C., 18 and older. Contests void where prohibited. See Official Rules for complete details. For Official Rules, entry form, and recipes or to

your family’s taste buds, try Rachel’s prize-winning peanut butter wrap recipe.

Though these majors are popular, the Princeton Review notes they are not necessarily the majors that garner the most demand in the job market, particularly in the current economy. When choos- ing a major, it’s best for students to choose a field that interests them, regardless of how popular or potentially lucrative that field might be.
