This is a partnered post with Jif.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Kelly Ripa, a Jif spokesperson, about heading back to school. A busy mom herself Kelly shared a fun story about how her son loves new Jif Hazelnut Swirled Spreads so much that he would eat it on anything. After trying the spreads myself I say I have to agree, they’re simply delicious and goes great on any snack.

Her best tips for busy moms like me is staying organized every week. She said that if you just take the time once a week to make a schedule the entire family knows expectations and the schedule for the week. It helps everyone move through the day smoother and helps her stay on track. She also shared some of her favorite uses for new Jif Hazelnut Swirled Spreads.

With our little ones getting ready to head back to school I am getting organized. A monthly calendar, new backpacks and lunch boxes. I feel like we’re finally ready to head back to school.Jif Chocolate Cheesecake Hazelnut Spread Kids lunch snack ideaOne thing I struggle a lot with is making sure I have everything for easy lunches. With multiple kids heading off to school I found myself rushed for time, especially as our girls settled into school and their morning routine. Being simple and creative is what lunch is all about and I like to send my girls off with lunches they actually want to eat.

New Jif Hazelnut Swirled Spreads come in flavors like Chocolate Cheesecake and Cookies N’Cream. The Chocolate Cheesecake Flavored Hazelnut Spread is one of our favorites and perfect for simple lunch ideas like sandwich roll ups. Jif Chocolate Cheesecake Hazelnut SpreadSandwich roll ups are fun for kids and delicious too. Our girls aren’t big fans of the crust on their sandwich so this is also a great way around that.Jif Chocolate Cheesecake Hazelnut Spread (3)Just cut off the crust, slice a banana and add some delicious Chocolate Cheesecake Hazelnut Spread. Jif Chocolate Cheesecake Hazelnut Spread (4)Roll together and it’s a simple and delicious lunch that our girls can’t get enough of.
