#1: Healthy Bars

I keep a large canister on my kitchen counter stocked with my son’s favorite gluten-free healthy snack bars such as Kind, Clif, and Larabars. These are great for those mornings when we are running a little behind – you can just grab one and go. They are packed full of nuts, seeds and fruit making them great for those mid-afternoon energy boosts. They are also perfect for sticking in the backpack or gym bag for after school sports practice or dance class. These bars are also ideal because they are offered in a huge variety of flavors, so you are sure to find something that your child will love.

#2: Popcorn

Who doesn’t love popcorn? I know it’s a favorite snack at our house. It isn’t just for movie nights either – popcorn is great because it is so versatile. You can season it with any spicy or sweet spice you like. You can make it in large quantities, it’s packed with tummy filling fiber and it’s fun to share. My son loves it because it is easy to eat, and he always has enough to give some to his buddies while he studies.

#3: Nuts + Seeds

Nuts and seeds are a fantastic snack for school because they are packed with amino acids and are great for those mid-morning cravings. We usually buy many different kinds of nuts and seeds and then mix them all together in a large glass container with a scoop. This way I can just scoop out a portion, place it in a reusable container and pop it in the lunchbox. It’s sometimes fun to add carob chips or small pieces of dried fruit to the mix – giving it a little added sweetness.
