Back To School Snack Essentials
*I received some of the products listed to be included in the guide, but regardless all opinions are my own.
Back To School Time is a very busy time of the year but this year we decided to do a Back To School Snack Essentials Mini-Guide. Here are some great snacks to have on hand for packing lunches, after school snacks and just all around yummy treats. If you haven’t checked out the Back To School Guide, be sure to check it out too!
Capri Sun Sport
When my son packs his lunch, we need to be careful about the drinks he brings to school. His school has a policy that the kids cannot have any red juice or drinks that can stain the carpet. That’s why I love the Caprisun Sport drinks! Not only are these drinks tasty, they’re also healthy and don’t have any artificial colors. This makes the perfect drink for my son to pack for his lunch.
Pocky sticks make the perfect snack for school. These biscuit sticks are covered in delicious flavors such as banana cream, Oreos, strawberry, chocolate, and more! Not only are they delicious, they’re also convenient for the lunchbox. They’re packaged in individual snack packs, so my son can just grab it and go. Put them in your kid’s lunchboxes for a fun treat that they will enjoy this school year. Pocky Sticks are available online and stores near you!
If you’re looking for a delicious snack for your kids to take to school, then look no further than Setton Farms pistachio chewy bites. Not only are these bites delicious, they’re also gluten & dairy free. Since they’re also high in dietary fiber and protein, you know that your child is getting the brain food he needs to do well in school. What more can a parent ask for?
Let me tell you about a granola bar you will want to have on hands at the time. They are called Junkless Chewy Granola Bars and they are amazing. They come in a variety of flavors and you won’t be able to stop with just one. There are four flavors: Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, 100% REAL Strawberries and Cinnamon Roll. Each one is equally delicious. Our favorite part of these bars is there is no JUNK! Kids and parents alike love these bars. There are no hard to pronounce ingredients. Just super simple ingredients that make up an equally delicious bar. The granola bars are available nationally on Amazon and in select grocery stores around the country. You can grab for them for $3.99. Find out more about these awesome Junkless Chewy Granola Bars today.
Community Coffee Company
If you have followed me for very long you know I’m powered by coffee and love it especially in the winter months. But I recently fell in love with a new to me brand and their caramel coffee is just what the Dr. ordered when I need a jolt of java to help make it through the day. While I’m technically an Empty Nester and this is my first year not having to prepare for the insanity of another school year, I’m glad Community Coffee is right along side me in my cup cheering me on.
Nothing says back-to-school like a good cup of coffee! As the largest family-owned and operated coffee company in the U.S., Community Coffee Company offers high-quality blends featuring 100% select Arabica coffee beans in a variety of yummy flavors. From the intense, bold flavor of their French Roast to the smooth, velvety taste of their Private Reserve Sumatra blend, Community coffee is sure to help make mornings for mom and dad a little easier. Community also offers an annual Cash for Schools program that helps participating schools earn money by collecting UPC labels! So when my coffee is gone and it won’t be long, I will help the local school by giving them my UPC labels.
My son loves popcorn, so he was super excited to see that we have some Angie’s BoomChickaPop popcorn for him to pack for a snack at school. We have big bags of popcorn that we can eat at home or put in baggies to take to school, but we also have the individual popcorn bags that are already packaged and ready to pack as a snack. Boom Chicka Pop makes it easy for me to make sure my picky eater has food he’ll actually eat at school.
I’m always on the lookout for a delicious and easy snack for my son to pack. That’s why I’m so excited to try Buddy Fruits! These delicious and healthy snacks are in easy to use packaging to so my son can grab and go. I love the fact that they don’t need to be refrigerated until you open them, which means I don’t have to worry about it spoiling in my son’s lunch before he has the chance to eat it. When you add in the fact that Buddy Fruits are filled with both fruits and vegetables, I know that Buddy Fruits will be on my shopping list all school year.
Don’t forget to treat your child to a delicious snack this school year. My son loves his sweet treats, which is why the mini loaf cakes and cookies from Otis Spunkmeyer are the perfect addition to his lunchbox. My son loves the fact that they come individually wrapped so that he can just grab one and put it in his lunchbox. I love the fact that they don’t have any “funky stuff” in them. This includes no artificial flavors or colors! Otis Spunkmeyer treats should definitely be on your back-to-school shopping list this year.
Slammers is a must for this back to school season. Simply put some of the Slammers fruit packs into their lunchbox for an awesome after school snack. You will see our Slammers in the lunchbox for an actual lunch item. Kids need nutrition and these fruit packs can help your child get the nutrition you need. Not to mention, they love them, so it’s easy to make this a staple in my kitchen this year. Let’s not forget to mention that these Slammers are organic and packed with healthy fruits, veggies, and vitamins. On the go has never been easier. Check out all the flavors and order yours here.
