School is just around the corner. Hard to believe! With that in mind, I was thrilled with Chiquita offered to send some great snack ideas my way. And not just any snacks, healthy snacks.

At school this year, I will need to pack a morning snack for HJ. He will eat hot lunch most days (unless it is something he despises…like eggs), and then we will be in charge of a snack once a week for after-school care. For those keeping track (like me), that is 5 snacks a week, 1 group snack and a possible lunch. I think the best way to keep me sane this year is to keep it simple.

Chiquita has cute snack packs that I can easily throw in a bag for school, and know he is eating something healthy and nutritious during the day. HJ loved the apple slices and grape mix, while I preferred the apple with caramel dip (YUM!).

HJ and I also were given a cute guide with recipes to follow.  We made these cute apple slice cars, which are the perfect way to encourage picky eaters to eat their fruit!

For the days where I need to pack a group snack, I love that you can grab the large pre-sliced bags.  This will make it simple for the sitter, no prep and little to clean up!

To help get your family ready for school, Chiquita wants to send one of you a Thirty-One Thermal Tote!  The winner will be picked next Sunday, so be sure to enter before then.

    My kids like go gurt, cheese sticks & goldfish. For a couple “fun” snacks, they like to make things using mini marshmallows & pretzel sticks and writing the letters of their name on ritz crackers using squeeze cheese.
