After seven years of making school lunch for my kids (many of them you can see here), I now realize I’ve got breakfast, lunch and dinner covered. What about the kids pre-lunch snack, though? I’m the first to admit this is where, in the past, I’ve given it little to no thought. For the longest time, I would toss an apple or banana into their lunch bag, which are totally fine choices, but when Chloe has caught me forgetting to add a snack or laming out with one of these default items I knew I had to change my ways. I came up with a list of my Top 10 Snack Foods For Your Kid’s School Lunch to help inspire all of us (myself included!)
When it comes to snacking, I try to remember to offer a variety of foods through the week to satisfy my kid’s cravings. I know that Chloe loves smooth foods, like a smoothie or GoGo squeeZ pouches, and Kenya leans towards crunch, so I keep that in mind when packing their snacks. And these options aren’t just for the morning. You can offer them in your kid’s lunchbox, post-lunch, pre-dinner or any time of the day that you want something to tide them over to the next meal and fill your kids’ little bellies with a wholesome treat!
Below are a few of some of my favorite, simple, tasty snacks to give my kids throughout the day_
- Cheese sticks
- Hummus + veggies
- Rainbow Pops
- Turkey Cheese roll ups
- Fruit kebobs (strawberries/ melon balls/ grapes/ banana/etc.)
- DIY trail mix (nuts, dried fruits, dye free m&m’s)
- Popcorn with nutritional yeast
- Teddy Bear Toast
- GoGo squeeZ - It's 100% natural, healthy snacking! All GoGo squeeZ products are made with simple, whole foods like fruits and vegetables. That's true goodness on the go!
- Greek yogurt (with berries/granola and /or honey)

(I actually have 11 because I couldn't narrow the list!)
