If the flavors of jelly in our PB&J sandwiches competed, strawberry would soon be overtaking the original grape jelly choice! Smuckers is a well-recognized brand that kids know they can count on for great taste. Smuckers turns our raw, shelled commodity peanuts into the creamy richness we all recognize as Jif peanut butter.
The three ingredients, jelly, peanut butter and whole grain bread, meet the Child Nutrition Program requirements. Although it is offered as the alternative option for lunch, it is often the first choice for many of our students. We love that it’s a healthy choice!
