We’re all in back to school mode this time of year, right? And that means hungry, hungry hippos. (Oops! I mean, kids. Hungry, hungry kids.) 🙂
My children are just famished during the school day. I think it must be all the mental effort they expend figuring out ways NOT to do their work.
So this year I decided to create a simple back to school snack station that they could use on their own during snack break. Thanks to some awesome savings at Publix, I stocked our station for a lot less than usual!
See how we stocked our snack station and get ideas for your own! Plus, you can download a Publix coupon and enter our giveaway to win $15 in PayPal cash to get some kid-friendly snacks for your family!

Simple Back to School Snack Station
Sometimes I try to make homemade snacks for our children, but on some days I just run out of time to do it myself. So, picking up snacks I know my kids like can really be a time-saver.
Some of the simple snacks for kids I like to use include Fiber One chewy cookies, bananas, Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, and Chex Mix. (Seriously, those Fiber One cookies are incredible. It takes a LOT of self-control for me not to eat the whole box.)
So here’s how I make up the station:
I empty the Chex Mix into small resealable bags – usually three bags at a time, one for each of my older kids. Then I remove the granola bars and cookies from the box and place them in the basket, along with the bananas.
That’s it! That’s all I do! When it’s snack time, I set the basket on the table and the kids go at it.
Hey, hey! One at a time! 🙂
I will say that I don’t let my kids snack during school. We take breaks to have snacks, but when we’re schooling, we’re schooling.
