School Snack Ideas Made Easy

Back to school is right around the corner, are you ready?

Can I be honest with you here? I blog about food but I struggle with packing lunches. I’m always on the lookout for fuss-free and easy ideas that make me happy (because of the no effort) and him happy because they taste good.

School lunch ideas for grade 1

It’s not always easy to find simple snacks to throw in my son’s lunchbox, so I search for great snacks (like Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks) and like to make my own granola bars and granola bites! So while I was brainstorming some ideas to spruce up the homemade bars and balls, I thought why not combine no-bake granola bars and my sons’ favorite Welch’s snack.

Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks

Have you tried these yet? They’re so darn good! My son is constantly asking for them for his lunch and for a snack at home, so I wanted to know what the big deal was and tried a few. Those few turned into two bags. They’re delicious, and they didn’t seem as “kid-like” as other fruit snacks, so I would feel perfectly professional bringing these into an office environment (I have a few in my diaper bag for snacks on the go – for me, not the kids).

Kid and parent snack in one go? Score! They’re also available at Wal-Mart, which is convenient for so many of us.

Why are they so good? My bet is that it’s because they are such a delicious snack that you can also take on the go!

Those two bags made me think of a granola bar I used to eat back in the day, they had similar tastes and I wanted to do my best to recreate it.

How to make no bake homemade granola bars

Are you ready for one of the easiest granola bar recipes ever? These no-bake, soft ingredients help create a chewy granola bar that is simple to pack in the kidlets’ lunches.

All you have to do is mix up the ingredients, press into an 8×8 pan (lined with parchment for easy clean up) and freeze for an hour to firm up.

Randa’s Tip: Whether you make granola bites or homemade granola bars, the recipe is the same. Simply roll into balls for the bites.

Nut free granola bars recipe

There are three ways to make this granola bar recipe

  1. Make the granola bar base and keep it like that.
  2. Create a creamy yogurt glaze and coat the top. *This is perfect for cold months, but I find that when it’s warm in the house it will melt.
  3. Drizzle white chocolate over top for White Chocolate Strawberry Granola Bars.
