With the kids back in school (Noah returns to preschool next Tuesday!) I don't make a lunch for them everyday because they like to eat what their friends eat in the cafeteria, but sometimes they do ask me to make them a lunch, and it's usually a last minute thing...and of course I make it for them! Our school is a peanut-free school so it's usually meat and cheese for us.
I found these new Hillshire Naturals Lunch Meat at Walmart the other day and was immediately drawn to the packaging - they have no artificial ingredients, preservatives, colors or added nitrates except those that are occurring naturally in celery juice ( I didn't even think about that before! You learn something new everyday! ) Hillshire Farm wanted me to try them and to see what I thought. They have four varieties including Slow Roasted Turkey Breast, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Breast, Honey Roasted Ham, and Black Forest Ham. I snagged a couple packages of the Slow Roasted Turkey Breast.
I made a couple of sandwiches to take along with us during Anika's practice in the evening and then Noah and I split a sandwich for lunch. All of the kids have been on a pickle kick, so I made the sandwiches with mozzarella, honey dijion mustard and sliced pickles. I toasted Noah's and mine in the broiler and we sat down with some fresh cantaloupe and grapes.
We both loved it - and so did everyone else. I love finding products that I know are wholesome for my kids and great- tasting too! The packaging on the lunch meat was handy too, because the Hillshire Farm Naturals are packaged in double-sealed, re-sealable tubs that help keep them fresher longer.
The Hillshire Farm Naturals can be found in the packaged deli meats section in grocery stores nationwide. I would totally buy these again, because I love the peace of mind I get knowing that there's not a bunch of stuff added into them.
What sandwich combos do your kids crave?
