25 delicious sweet and savory Healthy Back to School Snacks for Kids with allergen friendly options featuring Sunrays Citrus, a way to snack with impact.
This post, Healthy Back to School Snacks for Kids, has been proudly sponsored by Sunrays Citrus. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Back to school season was always my favorite time of year when I was growing up. It was always time for a fresh new start. New clothes, new routines, new seasons and weather.
And now I can’t believe my baby boy is going to preschool this year! But unlike the other moms I know, I’m not sad at all. In fact, I am really excited for both him and for me.
After being together 24/7 for the past 3 years, I think Ran and I are ready for a little time apart. For me to work on my business, and for him an opportunity to play with kids his own age.
I am excited to bring more schedule back into our lives, and I am excited to have more consistent, planned meals and snacks as well.
Of course, I’ve never done the whole lunch-packing thing before, so I have enlisted the help of some of my most talented colleagues to bring together some of the most delicious Healthy Back to School Snacks for Kids!
A Sweet Snack With Impact
One thing I always keep on hand for the most simple snack any time of day are Sunrays mandarins. Sunrays are sweet, easy-to-peel mandarins grown and packed by dedicated professionals who are devoted to protecting the environment and making the world a better place – all while delivering the tastiest mandarins around!
As a mom and a consumer I understand that where I spend my money matters, and when it comes to Sunrays, I know that I am going to consistently get a delicious, quality product that also gives back to the community because Sunrays is more than just a brand, it is a movement.
Packed with Love and Care
Each Sunray is grown and packed with love and care; all Sunrays farms are certified under the strictest global standards for good agricultural practices. These standards ensure that every farm growing Sunrays focuses on sustainability, is committed to the health, safety, and welfare of its workers, and is treating the environment with respect. Sunrays is also proudly Non-GMO Project Verified.
Without Mother Earth, there would be no Sunrays, which is why they have designed all of their packaging materials with Mother Earth’s well-being in mind. All packaging used for Sunrays is 100% recyclable and only the necessary materials are used, to minimize waste.
If that wasn’t enough, Sunrays is the only fresh fruit company that invests so heavily in giving back to others.
Sunrays & Save the Children
In the U.S. communities that Save the Children serves, an average of 59 percent of the population does not have access to fresh, healthy foods.
Sunrays partners with Save the Children to donate time, goods and product, most recently to support the Save the Children SummerBoost Camp.
Eating well and being physically active at an early age helps children focus, improves school attendance, boosts academic performance, and ultimately helps them grow to be healthy adults. Save the Children provides robust health and nutrition programs around the world to save children’s lives and ensure they grow up healthy.
When you enjoy a Sunray, you’re not only championing for a healthier you but for a world of children in need.
