Healthy School Lunch Snacks for Teens



School is officially in session and this year my son will be bringing a lunch from home more often.





My son has been begging me to bring a lunch from home for years but it's always just been easier for him to eat at school. Now that he's in High School, things are different. School lunch is pricey and it's more affordable to pack a lunch. So that's what we're doing and my son couldn't be happier.




Of course, I like it because it's a great opportunity for me to add healthier foods into his diet. Like fresh fruit and veggies. Well, he loves fruit, not so much veggies. I don't mind. At least he's getting some sort of fiber.





Another good option is adding organic snacks like Annies Chewy Chocolate Chip granola bars and Annie's Cheddar Bunnies.


He likes junk foods, what teen doesn't?  I'd much rather give him an Annies organic granola bar than a candy bar. Annie's Cheddar Bunnies are a better choice than regular potato chips. I myself could eat these all day!




I'll be honest, we don't always eat organically, but I try to serve it where I can and Annie's has always made it easy for me to get healthier foods options into our diets.





Why not give Annie's Homegrown snacks a try for yourself! Visit the website for more Lunch Box Yum ideas!


Do your teens eat organic foods?

  1. I just wrote a post about this very same topic! My teen boys are SO hungry - it's a challenge to pack enough for them and still keep it healthy. Like you, I also insist on some type of fruit or veggie every day but it's also nice to have some healthy packaged snacks to add in! http://mindfulmomma.com/2016/08/healthy-school-lunches-for-hungry-teenagers.html

  3. I love Annie's snacks! I haven't tried their granola bars yet so I definitely need to. It's so important to snack healthy regardless of your age.

  4. My kids STAY hungry! I think we may spend more on snacks and fruit than we do on our actual meals sometimes! Granola bars are our go to, portable foods.

  8. I've seen these products in the store, but I've never tried them. My son carried his lunch to school for years. Now that he is in 7th grade he is eating lunch at the school for the first time.

  14. Those snacks are super convenient. My son isn't a big fan of Annie's organic however. We have tried several of their products and they just don't do it for him. But we haven't tried the granola bars yet. I am going to have to look into those. #ProductReviewParty
