The brand found three families with children heading off to Kindergarten and first grade this fall. These parents have been preparing their kids for their first year of full-time school for weeks. So, Oscar Mayer Natural surprised the parents by turning the tables and helping the kids prepare mom and dad! From a first-day-of-school outfit, to a perfectly prepared bag lunch complete with a love note, these kids pull out all the stops to make sure their parents are just as ready as them for school.

The Oscar Mayer Natural Back to School video highlights the real and relatable moments that families experience during this hectic time of year, including the thought that goes into school lunches.

“The back-to-school season can be an emotional time for families, especially when it’s the first year a child goes off to school. We know parents have a lot on their minds,” said Oscar Mayer Brand Director Whitney Shaw. “Because Oscar Mayer Natural never uses any artificial ingredients and has a taste everyone is sure to love, it’s one thing parents can check off their list so they can enjoy those final days of summer and focus on making more family memories.”

Having kids go through the back to school preparations for mom and dad, including making a delicious Oscar Mayer Natural sandwich, was the perfect way to show parents that all their work and preparations have paid off. Now the whole family can feel ready to take on the year.
