DIY Ninja Turtle Sandwich: Enter The Sandwich Art Facebook Contest
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nature’s Harvest® and Sverve. All of the opinions expressed are 100% my very own.
One of the most common complaints I hear among other moms is how difficult it can be to get their young child to eat. I know I personally struggle with getting my five year old to eat his entire meal, he is such a busy little guy that I am constantly having to remind him to return to his seat and finish his meal. One way I have always been able to peak my children’s interest when it comes to meals is making their food fun. I am a mom of three, one is a toddler, so I completely understand the lack of time when it comes to creating a fun meal for the kids. Go for simple, grab a cookie cutter, cut out a shape and create your masterpiece from there. My son’s latest craze is Ninja Turtles and I decided to quickly put together this DIY Ninja Turtle sandwich for him, it literally took all of five minutes! I am always looking for ways to balance my family’s diet with plenty of delicious, nutritious whole grains, and it is as simple as adding their favorite Nature’s Harvest® breads to their grocery basket at Walmart! We have been using Nature’s Harvest® breads for years and they have such a great selection to choose from.
When purchasing Nature’s Harvest® breads for your family, you can always count on at least 8 grams of whole grains in every serving. Their breads contain no artificial flavors, colors or high-fructose corn syrup, and ALL Nature’s Harvest® varieties carry the whole grain stamp. Whether Made with Whole Grain White, Honey Wheat-or any other variety, you can be rest assured that it’s made with whole grains because it says Nature’s Harvest®. Their slogan isn’t “The easy choice for whole grains” for nothing!
Nature’s Harvest Honey Wheat, is currently on rollback for $1.97 nationwide, an exclusive offer at Walmart!
Did you know that 57% of American consumers eat whole grains at least every two weeks in their diet (#2 in their list of BFY eating habits after “Reduced/No Fat”.) I bet you didn’t know that 56% of American consumers are already trying to add whole grains into their diet (#1, Fiber and Protein #’s 2 and 3 following.) According to a recent nationwide survey conducted on behalf of Nature’s Harvest bread, nearly 75% of moms have employed creative methods, such as styling food into fun shapes, to get their children to eat more nutritiously. In a recent survey of moms with children ages four to 13, Nature’s Harvest learned nearly half of moms are concerned about their children’s nutrition and that 52% consider whole grains one of the most important nutritional considerations when purchasing food at the grocery store.
I want to know what you think about whole grains! If you take the 10 minute shopper research survey, you will be receiving a $5 Walmart gift card if you are one of the first 100 people that fully completes the survey (U.S. citizens only, must be 18 years or older to participate).
To celebrate “good taste” for back-to-school, Nature’s Harvest® is hosting a pretty awesome Sandwich Art Facebook Contest, and that celebrity chef / mom Kelsey Nixon is a judge. The contest is live now, with a KITCHEN CRASH with Kelly Nixon as the grand prize and backpacks filled with Crayola products for second prizes.
