Back to School Snack Ideas

Look no further for tasty and easy-to-make back to school snacks.

With Summer routines quickly changed to Fall, our eating patterns change too. Kids are back to school (in whatever sense that looks like for your family) and finding ideas for tasty and nutritious food can be time consuming. Keep reading for our list of back to school snack ideas!

Cheese and Meat Kabobs

This is a great snack or school lunch for when you are out of ideas. With ingredients you most likely already have at home, this one is a go-to for a quick but filling snack. Check out Delightful E Made for all the details on this recipe.

Back to School Mix

This recipe created by Thirty Handmade Days is one that would be great to make in bulk on the weekend and have it available throughout the week. It is also easily customizable to whatever you already have in the kitchen.

Check out the linked blog post for a template on the fun packaging you see here.

Healthy Yogurt Oat Blueberry Muffins

These muffins make a great snack but also an easy grab-and-go breakfast on those rushed school mornings. If you are fresh out of blueberries, try this same recipe with different ingredients. Give raspberry chocolate a try or Saskatoon berries if you have any leftover in the freezer! Check out Mel’s Kitchen Cafe for the whole recipe.

Oatmeal Bars

Made with applesauce, these bars are a fall classic. They are great to send in the lunch bag, but also a good option to have around the house as an after school snack. Check out Beyond the Chicken Coop for the full recipe.

Homemade Fruit Snacks

This snack might take a bit more effort, but if you’re looking for an alternative to store bought fruit snacks, then this recipe is for you. Created by Dessert for Two, this vibrant snack is a fun addition to a regular school lunch. It would also be a fun project to complete with your little ones!

S’mores Popcorn Balls

We have to throw a dessert into the mix right? This snack created by I Heart Eating is a fun and tasty throwback to summer camping.
