For parents of school aged children, August can be one of the busiest and most hectic months of the year. I know for our family we’re struggling with the sudden schedule change that starts by sending two kids to school (at different times), picking them up from school, our son’s football practice and of course my husband’s unpredictable work schedule.

Even the simplest of tasks like putting a hot meal on the table can present a challenge when everyone is scattered with their own activities. While I love to put together “from scratch” dinners and snacks, I’m not above a quick fix meal. In fact, I welcome a meal I can throw together in 15 minutes just so we can all sit down together to eat, even if it is rushed.

Kraft Foods has some new Velveeta Cheesy Skillets dinner kits that make that possible.

Just this week between my husband getting home from work and our son needing to get to football practice I was able to throw together the Lasagna kit along with some steamed broccoli and potatoes for a meal that took 15 minutes to get from the box to the table. The best part … it was surprisingly tasty!

And of course there’s never a bad time for dessert, even if it is before dinner. The kids always come home from school “starving” (so they say) and I like to give them a small snack to hold them over until dinner which could be at 6pm or as late as 8pm. One fun and easy snack is turning some simple Chewy CHIPS AHOY! made with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups into a mini ice cream cookie sandwich with some frozen yogurt.

You’ll also find a few other Kraft Foods products on store shelves that will help simplify your first week back to school …

CAPRI SUN Super V Fruit and Vegetable Juice Drink (Fruit Punch): CAPRI SUN Super V is a new refreshing fruit & vegetable juice drink that kids will enjoy and moms will feel good about serving. The new ready-to-drink beverage, which comes in the popular CAPRI SUN pouch, contains a combined serving of fruits and vegetables (3/4 from fruit juice and 1/4 from vegetable juice) and is a good source of fiber, offering a perfect blend of nutrition, great taste and “kid cool.”

LUNCHABLES with Smoothie: New Turkey and Cheddar Sub Sandwich with Chiquita® Strawberry Banana Smoothie and Double Stuf OREO cookies is the perfect first-day lunch time option that combines all of your kids’ favorites! You can also try the new Chicken Strips and Deep Dish Pizza options to add some variety to lunchtime!

JELL-O with Mix-Ins Pudding Packs: Feed your family a snack you can feel good about with new JELL-O with Mix-Ins. Mix your favorite toppings into your favorite pudding flavors to create your new favorite dessert. Kids will love trying the six fun flavors like Strawberry Shortcake, OREO Dirt Cup, Birthday Cake, German Chocolate Cake, Turtle Sundae and Banana Caramel Pie. And you’ll love that they’re made with real milk.
