Winter break is coming to an end and that means the kids will be headed back to school. If your kids are anything like mine, when they head back to school it seems like their appetites go into super drive! As soon as we walk through the doors after a day of school, my oldest has no shame in letting me know that she is STARVING. In order to quell the growing beast, I put together a grab and go back to school snack bin in my pantry. Loaded with snacks she loves and I don’t feel bad giving her.
Simple Back to School Snack Ideas
I put my back to school snack bin together with two things in mind, accessibility and simplicity. You won’t see anything over the top or Pinterest worthy here…Just simple and delicious snacks that kids love. My few staples that I leave in the grab and go bin are:
- Mandarin Oranges
- Dried Fruits
- Jif® Power Ups™
Nothing fancy, but packed with snacks that school aged kids will love.
Jif Power Ups
While most of the snacks in my back to school bin are old school staples, the Jiff Power Ups are the new obsession. Available at Publix, these are the perfect after school snacks. Not only does my daughter think they are delicious, they are also quite filling, energizing and nourishing as well. They come in two forms, the Creamy Clusters and the Chewy Bars, as well as a wide array of flavors the kids (and mom) will love.
No matter what variety you decided to pick up, you can feel good in knowing that peanuts are the first ingredient, there is no corn syrup, and they all contain a balance of protein, fiber and good fats to keep your little one going! If that wasn’t enough, they also have a super approachable ingredient statement.
Half of the time it feels like snacks can be a struggle… The kids don’t want to eat what I picked out, and I don’t want to get what they want…. Thankfully peanuts are the great flavor equalizer and this is one win-win snack we can all agree on!

Snacking Made Simple
No matter if you are a mom on the go, packing school lunches, or looking for a great after school snack… Staying simple will never let you down! These are easy to grab and toss in your child’s lunchbox or even your purse. Keep some for in the car snacks or leave them out in a snack bin for the kids to grab when they get home!
