With schools getting ready to reopen and the kids going back to their routine, most parents are already shopping not only for school supplies but also for their children’s favorite snacks. With that being said a snack station is exactly will make your life a whole lot easier.

What is a snack station?  A snack station is simply an area of the fridge or pantry (or kitchen cupboard, benchtop, wherever there is space) where healthy snacks are stored together so that  kids can simply help themselves. What you put in your kid’s snack station is entirely up to you, a snack station is for kids of all ages from toddlers to teenagers.

You can stock up, on a Sunday with the help of your child and it will be ready for when the kids get home from school. They can pick ahead what snacks they want for the week. Here are a few ideas to create your own:

Pre-packaged Snacks

Pre-packaged snacks are always great, everyone can help themselves to snacks like granola bars, dried fruit, packs of nuts, individual peanut butter, and other treats.
