BACK-TO-SCHOOL! Am I crazy to be thinking about back-to-school already? Well, maybe! But I am a planner and I love to come up with ideas and fun ways to get my kids excited about back-to-school. Although we still have a bit to wait before heading back, I’ve already come up with some great ideas and ways to get the kids excited about snacking at school! Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks are one of our favourites and we love having them in our kids’ lunches.  

A few of my kids come home with their lunches still half full, and others come back with nothing! I try to make sure they have a big variety of the main staples in their lunch. 

Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks are one that is often requested in the kids’ lunches for their snack. I love sending them in their lunches, but why not get a little bit creative and add in Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks in a unique way? All of these recipes I’ve come up with are simple, with simple ingredients.These snacks I’m sharing with you are three creative ideas to get your kids excited about back to school and get them excited about eating their lunches, and hopefully all of it! Of course, we don’t send these all at once. They provide three days of different, fun snacks for the kids. These snacks I’m going to share with you are three creative ideas to get your kids excited about back to school and excited about eating their lunches, and hopefully of it!

Fruit ‘n Yogurt Skewers

Simple, fun and delicious! For these skewers you can add whatever your kids love. Mine happen to love blueberries so I chose to use that as my fruit of choice, and a strawberry to seal the deal! 

Ingredients:

  • Blueberries
  • Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snack in Strawberry
  • 1 Strawberry
  • Skewers

Directions:

  1. Pick however you’d like to have your skewers lined up. I chose to do a blueberry than a Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snack in a pattern
  2. Once done, place a strawberry at the end of your skewer and your snack is complete!

My kids think these are just the best. Didn’t think you could have yogurt on skewer did you? Now you can!

Banana Boats

Ingredients:

  • Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks in Strawberry
  • Bananas
  • Raspberry Jam

Directions:

  1. After peeling your banana cut in half length-wise, then cut in halves
  2. Spread your jam on each of your pieces, you should get 4 with a medium sized banana
  3. Then top in a line with Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks

This is a new one for us, but it’s a huge hit. My kids love everything about these and it’s so different; even their friends were asking questions last year. So, I can’t wait to incorporate these into their lunches this September! 

Finally, we’ve got one last recipe that is super simple and full of flavour.

    The kids are going to love these. I just bought a big box of the regular fruit snacks for the kids to bring up to NH with us and it’s already almost gone.

    I love these ideas. I always tried to pack cute, fun lunches for my kids when they were little. It made them want to eat the healthy stuff.

    Those look like great little snacks. Nothing beats a healthy snack that the kids don’t KNOW is healthy. That’s the key. You have to trick ’em!

    These Welch’s Fruit and yogurt look like something I would really enjoy when I am doing my online work. I am a heavy snacker but lately, I am choosing healthier snack options, and Welch’s is perfect for me.
