Great Back to School Tips & Snacks from KIND Snacks!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Today, I bring you another great snack idea for your child's lunch box this school year: KIND Snacks!

KIND Snacks are a brand of delicious, all natural, foods made from ingredients you can see & pronounce®. With their lines of snack bars, KIND Fruit & Nut®, KIND PLUS™, and KIND Nuts & Spices, as well as their line of 100% Whole Grain granola, KIND Healthy Grains™, they have quickly become one the fastest growing brands in the natural foods space. Beyond crafting award winning foods, they aim to make the world a little kinder through the KIND Movement, which has inspired hundreds of thousands of unexpected acts of kindness around the world.

I absolutely LOVE their KIND Bars for snacks on the go and for school lunches!

KIND Bars are made with tasty ingredients you can see & pronounce, like nuts, fruits, honey and spices. Mysteries belong in novels, not in your food.

I also tried their Healthy Grains Clusters for the first time!

KIND Healthy Grains Clusters are delicious blends of nature's best ingredients including five super grains that are rich in nutrients, making them the perfect snack for your healthy lifestyle.

Always gluten free and non GMO. It tasted great in Greek Yogurt and I loved eating it as a snack for sustained energy throughout the day!

Check out these great tips from KIND Snacks as you start the upcoming school year craziness!

Breakfast Checklist: 

If your kids are in too much of a rush for breakfast, their school performance could suffer. This study found that kids who eat breakfast miss less school, average higher math scores, and 20% are even more likely to graduate! Easy, quick and nutritionally dense options are best to ensure they can at least grab breakfast as they run out the door in the morning. Make sure you check off protein, fiber, and healthy fats for this meal for energy and brain power.

Pack a Snack: 

Packing healthy options is the best way to help your kids avoid all the unhealthy choices lurking around their school. Between vending machines, bake sales, candy fund raisers and the snacks in the lunch line, who knows what they’re eating throughout the day! If they keep some healthy snacks in their locker or school bag, they’re less likely to fall prey to all these temptations, and they’ll be getting the brain food they really need.

Lunch Punch: 

Did you know that in school lunch lines, pizza and french fries are considered vegetables? It might be the safest option to pack a school lunch to ensure your kids are getting the real vegetables they need, as well as fruits, proteins and whole grains. Make it interesting with some bold flavors to ensure they actually eat what you pack!

Parent’s Lunch Crunch: 

Don’t forget mom or dad! During back to school it can be all too easy for parents to forget about taking care of themselves when they’re taking care of their kids. When you’re in a time crunch, make sure you too have easily accessible, healthy foods to snack on and reach for when it’s lunch time. Maybe pack your own lunch at the same time you pack for your kids so you can ensure a healthy meal is ready when you are!

Buy It: You can purchase all KIND Healthy Snacks from the KIND online store.
