We all remember coming back home from school and tearing through the kitchen to look for an after-school snack. When 3:00 pm hits and your kids are hungry and back from school, you’ll be ready with easy and quick snacks. The following back to school tips and snack ideas will keep you and your kids (even picky eaters) happy and full of energy!

1. Make meal prepping a habit

Once school returns, everyone’s schedules change. Create a new routine and give yourself enough time to get used to it until you get the hang of it. It’s true that a little goes a long way. Preparing your kid’s lunch the night before and just packing it in the morning will save you a lot of time during those rushed mornings!

2. Make meal time, fun time!

Get them started young. Show your kids how fun and healthy cooking at home can be by spending some time with them in the kitchen. Not only will they learn from you, but they will love preparing their own meals!

3. Let your Creativity Shine Through

Do you remember the first time you tried the veggie game? Not so fun. But, you can trick your kids into eating fruits and healthy snacks very easily by playing around with their meals and switching up the recipes. Visit to find more delicious recipes.
