Kids are back to school, and you're back to your routine.

While the transition to school (at first) may be a challenge, packing your kid’s lunches and snacks should be easy—and something they look forward to!

Instead of packing food that’s filled with refined sugar and processed junk that can inhibit your children’s learning abilities, we’ve put together a list of five back-to-school snacks that will satisfy their taste buds and deliver the nutrients they need to stay fueled and focused throughout the day.

Warning: These snacks may cause sudden urges to raid your child’s lunchbox.
