My girls went back to school this week and I can’t believe we are already starting school! It feels like just yesterday we finished up virtual learning in the spring. The girls are doing still virtual leaning this semester (see all my tips for online learning here) but one thing certainly hasn’t changed this back to school season — we are all here for the snacks!
Whether your kids are doing online schooling, heading back in person (see my tips for in-person learning here) or even if you don’t have kids; we all needs some good snacks around the house! And you can’t forget lunch! Just because you are at home doesn’t mean the kiddos (also known as your coworkers) don’t need a healthy school lunch. In our house being prepared with snacks and meals is even more important because of my dietary restrictions (see more here). Popping out for a drive-through lunch isn’t an option on my diet so staying prepared and organized is key. I don’t eat dairy or grains, but over the years I have assembled quite a list of favorite snacks that don’t contain these ingredients.
I have compiled below a list of our family’s favorite snacks both for kids and adults, my favorite gluten free and dairy free snacks and some great products for staying organized for lunches both at home and at school.
