Short Cuts

For hungrier kids, our new Kids Meals (like our Chicken Teriyaki Dunk-Lings) can be enjoyed as a meal or shared as a snack.

5 Back to School Snack Ideas

Back to school means back to snacking… Hungry kids home from school tend to head straight to the refrigerator. Preempting their eating habits with a few fun and delicious snacks is an easy way to get them on the path to healthy eating this calendar year. But when stomach growls drown out patience, you’ll have to have key ingredients front-and-center.

Below are some foods that require next-to-no waiting, no real cooking, and usually no convincing. Find out your child’s food preference then make it easy to snack-and-go.

  • For a Mini Mediterranean Mezze: Stock stuffed grape leaves, hummus, Snack-brand tzatziki, pita chips or crackers, radishes, celery, carrots, olives, dates and almonds.
  • For Italian inspiration: Reach for marinated fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, fresh figs, sesame grissini, sliced melon, sliced sopressata or ham.

If your child is famished – looking for more of a meal than a snack, check out our eight new Kids Meals. From Chicken Teriyaki Dunk-Lings to Pun’kin Ravioli – there’s a meal for every pint-sized palate.
