Easy and cute back to school snacks

If you find yourself stressed out about planning some easy and cute back to school snacks, take a deep breath and rest easy because I have some fresh ideas for you! Feeding my girls has always felt like a huge job to me and not just because they’re picky. I don’t know how to cook, I don’t like trying to cook, and honestly I would rather decorate a kitchen than actually use the kitchen. My husband, however, is a great cook and is solely responsible for keeping us alive over the years! While cooking is not my gift, I am OK at arranging food to look cute or appetizing – and this does help with our picky eater because she’s very visual.

Easy and cute back to school snacks

When I plan out snacks for my girls or even myself, I want snacks that are healthy, easy, taste good, and I often consider how I’m going to present it so that it looks good too. I found a few resources that I’m going to actually use because they’re so doable and healthy — I hope they provide some snack inspiration for you as well!

Parent Map shares these 10 classic snack ideas with a twist, and I think kids can put together around half of them, especially older kiddos. I love the fruit insect snack – it looks like something I could make for a birthday party as well. Aren’t these the cutest?!


Joanie of One Dish Kitchen has this wonderful banana bread recipe using one banana – it’s delicious and bakes perfectly in Sweese ramekins. Joanie’s recipe makes one serving of banana bread or you can easily double it to make dessert for two! I baked her banana bread using my new Sweese ramekins in our Breville counter-top toaster oven and they baked perfectly even! I used a little butter so that they didn’t stick and the ramekins are dishwasher safe too. I love that I can use these adorable little dishes to serve ice cream sundaes, individual cheesecakes, custard/pudding, fresh fruit, salsa, dip, quiche, or to hold toppings for other main dishes. Sweese makes these ramekins in classic white or some gorgeous bold colors.

Sweese specializes in high quality cookware and it fits comfortably in your hands when using it. On their site you will find serving dishes, bake ware, dishes, beverage, and more. I personally love the simple lines and style to their pieces – and you can coordinate their classic white pieces easily with your existing pieces, or you can select their fun, bold, and bright designs too! Here are some of my favorite Sweese products! I’m totally getting that butter keeper once we move into the house.

Ciara of My Fussy Eater is a food writer and cookbook author. Her blog is full of ideas and inspiration, and snacks for kids are no exception. I love the simplicity of these snack ideas, they’re super easy and quick to put together, and they’re healthy! I think they look so cute in little bento containers and they just look so fun to eat. A little bit of several choices from different food groups is so easy and smart. These bento boxes can be prepped ahead of time and stored in the fridge – you can customize and get creative to meet your preferences. I know that my youngest daughter would not want everything tasting like pickles, so to separate certain foods these silicone dividers are a must, plus they can be used for baking!

I’m determined to not get stressed over feeding the kids this year! I’m going to keep fresh fruit, veggies, easy proteins, and some healthy carbs in the kitchen year-round. Since my kids are famished right after school, I’ll pack a few bento containers and let them snack on the car ride home. That’s my plan anyway!
