It’s that time of year where we’re all searching for great lunchbox friendly snacks, right? I know it’s always a struggle to find snacks my kids will enjoy that also fit easily into their lunchboxes, so I figured what better time of year than now to share with you some of our favorite picks for this Back To School season.
Welch’s Fruit Rolls are the newest thing we’ve come across that my kids (and husband) absolutely love. These super fun to eat fruit rolls deliver the same quality my family loves in Welch’s Fruit Snacks, in a new, irresistibly fun format. Featuring fruit as its first ingredient, they come in three mouthwatering flavors: Berry, Tropical Punch, and White Grape Strawberry. We’ve tried the Tropical Punch and Berry which were AMAZING, and now I’m on the hunt to try the White Grape Strawberry…that one sounds absolutely incredible!
Don’t let size fool you, The Little Kernel may be miniature popcorn, but the flavor is big and the ingredients just can’t be beat. The Little Kernel keeps it real with no artificial ingredients. Popped in olive oil and using only quality ingredients, the Little Kernel is on a quest to bring you the best. Prepare your taste buds for their arrival at the frontline of fun with his lineup of adventurous flavors. Each kernel is gluten-free, non-GMO, dairy-free, kosher and certified whole grain.
Go Organically Fruit Snacks are one of my favorites to send my kiddos off to school with. These fruit snacks are USDA-certified organic, made with real fruit, GMO-free, gluten-free and preservative-free. Even better, these tasty and smart snacks are only 70 calories for each individual pack, so no matter who you’re shopping for or what their dietary restrictions are (or lack thereof) everyone can enjoy these tasty treats.
Viki’s Granola On-the-Go Packs are perfect for little ones who need a crunchy treat to get them through the day. Viki’s granola is made with 100% all natural ingredients, gluten-free and baked with love. With a fresh, soft and chewy texture, Viki’s Granola is great to enjoy on its own or with yogurt for a nutritious snack. From a successful bake sale adventure to a delicious treat enjoyed by thousands…you simply can’t go wrong with Viki’s granola.
My oldest son LOVES olives, so I was really happy to find these Gaea Organic Snack Olives to toss into my sons lunch. These olives are packed in a handy re-sealable package, without liquid, allowing the convenience of snacking now and later…perfect for a constantly-hungry teenage boy. These olives are 100% natural, containing zero additives or preservatives and very low salinity, Gaea’s Organic Olives make for a delicious savory snack.
Those super active kids are going to need refreshing drinks to get them through the day, right? I have a few staples that I keep on hand for my kiddos that I think yours will love too!
Skip the soda by opting for Sparkling Ice’s 8oz. Slim Cans. Perfect for lunchboxes or backpacks with it’s compact size! This slightly carbonated light and refreshing beverage contains Zero Calories, Zero Carbs, is Gluten Free, and is Sodium Free.
Brooklyn Organics is the perfect beverage for those looking for a sugar-free drink option. Whether I’m planning lunches for my children or even just a delicious snack for myself, Brooklyn Organics is a MUST! Each contains a bold fizz in a svelte packaging and is USDA Organic-certified, non-GMO, Kosher, Gluten Free and Caffeine Free.
If you have young children, chances are you already know what Aqua Ball is. Aqua Ball drinks are my daughter’s favorite drink to take to school. AquaBall’s naturally flavored water is the only zero-sugar, zero-calorie, zero-preservative children’s beverage around. Available in four flavors and featuring fan favorite Disney and Marvel characters, AquaBall is not only fun for kids, but also smart for parents.
I hope you try some or all of these snacks this Back To School season and let me know what your kiddos think of them!
