Easy Back-to-School Snacks and Lunches

It's that time of year again - summer's out and school's back in! Do you have everything you need to get back to school, back to work, and back to fall? And when we say things you need, we mean all the snacks you and your kids need to make it through the first day of school and then, through the school year. (#uknowwhatimean)?

And nothing against grilled cheese and pb&j sandwiches, cheese roll-ups, chocolate chip cookies, or pretzels - they're easy lunch ideas - but sometimes you just want something a little more nutritious! If you enjoyed our list of 5 Plant-Based Snacks for Back to School, you're going to love this list of kid-friendly, adult-approved easy snacks and lunches for you and the kiddos. Everything listed here can be thrown in a lunchbox for a healthy lunch or eaten as a satisfying after-school snack.

Fruit Roll-Ups from Bear

Apple Fruit Yo Yos from Bear, get it here

We love fruit leathers and Bear is a good choice for all ages! They're delicious fruit rolls made from real fruit - just apple, pear, and a little bit of spirulina, and nothing else! No need to feel guilty either - your kid's lunch will have something high in fiber and super low in sugar.

Deli Slices from The Butcher's Son

Maple Turkey Deli Slice from The Butcher's Son, get it here

The Butcher's Son deli slices are a healthy school lunch idea made super easy. With these, we say just go the classic route and add a bit of mustard, mayo, lettuce, cheddar cheese, and bread for a nutritious meal! Or you can roll the deli slices up in a tortilla if you're feeling a lil' wild.

Yogurt from The Coconut Collaborative

Chocolate Ganache Dessert Pots, get it here 

These 4 pack yogurts from The Coconut Collaborative are perfect for lunchboxes or an on-the-go healthy snack! They come in a variety of delicious fun and delicious flavors like Lemon Ganache, Mango & Passion Fruit, and Chocolate Ganache, and Salted Caramel. There's something for everyone - even the pickiest eater 😏

Snack Bars from CORE Foods

Organic Probiotic Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oat Bar from CORE Foods, get it here

We can't have a list of nutritious grab-and-go snacks without giving a shoutout to overnight oat bars. And have you had the ones from CORE Foods?! These bars are loaded with yummy organic probiotic oats (just think: overnight oats - only easier!). Plus, each bar is packed with 6g of fiber and 5g of protein to get you through the day. πŸ‘πŸΌ

Noodles from Ocean’s Halo

Ramen Noodle Bowl from Ocean's Halo, get it here 

These are like the top ramen from your college years, only better. Filled with nutritious ingredients and flavors, it's 100% good for your body and 100% good for the earth. Don't deprive yourself of this belly-warming goodness - stock up on organic noodles with ramen, pho, or miso broth (you're going to want to try all three).
