The Healthiest Snacks To Pack In Your Kids’ Lunches July 29 2014

It’s time to start prepping your family for their back-to-school routine! While you’re out buying new school supplies, you should also be focused on your kids’ nutritional needs. Sending your kids off to school with healthy snacks is important because this is going to help them grow into healthy young adults. Here are some of the best snacks to pack:

 

Fruit

Pack various fruits in their lunches. Fruits contain fundamental vitamins and minerals that are essential for your kids’ health. Fruits are also sweet and can help minimize their sweet tooth cravings throughout the day.

 

Veggies

Like fruit, veggies also contain important vitamins and minerals. If your kids aren’t fans of veggies, try packing something to dip them in, like peanut butter or a light dipping sauce.

 

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is full of protein. This will keep your children energized and full throughout the rest of the school day. Some stores actually offer kid-sized Greek yogurt containers, in case the full-serving size is too filling for your little ones

 

Whole Wheat Crackers

Whole wheat crackers are a great alternative to potato chips. They’re crunchy, filling, and hold some nutritional value. Some brands are high in sodium, so be sure to read the labels.

 

Granola

Don’t forget to pack granola! Bing's 'Nola is a filling snack that is packed with Omega 3's, healthy mono-unsaturated fats and it’s made with all-natural ingredients. It’s salty, sweet, and kid-approved! You can stock up on granola here.

Get your kids’ school year started out on the right foot! They’ll not only have the hottest new school gear, but they’ll show up with healthy lunches that will keep them energized and alert throughout the day. Focused kids equal better school grades!
