With school and extracurricular activities, our children have very active days. A snack can offer them a boost and help them keep their energy up until their next meal! What are the most popular snack ideas for kids (that parents can feel good about too)? Just head to Teuko and see what other families are sending to school. Here are the latest packaged snacks parents of the Teuko Lunchbox Community like to include in their kids’ lunchboxes.
1. Granola Bars
Our children are growing fast. That’s one thing sure. And sometimes, they need extra fuel – before PE class, or before a test. Thus one granola bar can help them recharge a tiny bit while adding some comfort via the sweetness they provide.
Discover all the lunchbox ideas shared by the parents of the Teuko families that come with granola bars, for dessert, or for snack time. So much variety!
Children often forget to stay adequately hydrated during their day at school. A smoothie can solve this problem AND add good nutrients and vitamins in a very convenient way.
We listed the most beloved smoothies by our Teuko Lunchbox Community in this article: “3 Ready-to-Pack Smoothies to Include in Your Kid’s Lunch Box”. Check it out!
A nice way to add a little bit of fun during your kid’s snack time is to include popcorn. Plain popcorn, without butter or salt, is even considered a good snack by nutritionists!

Out with the old, in with the new! Drinkable yogurts are still very popular but kefir, which is fermented milk, is more and more visible in our children’s lunch boxes!

Round, square, rectangle, heart-shaped, fish-shaped, … you can find crackers in all shapes. Teuko Families usually pair them with a little bit of cheese and charcuterie for creating homemade Lunchables. Or they simply put them on the side!

6. Squeezable Fruit (and Veggies) Sauces
This is a good alternative to the smoothies for adding some fruits and veggies while having no spoon (and no mess)!

Parents nowadays deeply care about their kids’ health and like to add probiotics, whether it’s a gummy or a drinkable shot, in order to reinforce their kids’ immune system. This explains the recent popularity of this “new” kind of snack in the kids’ lunch boxes!

Some parents include puffs in their kids’ lunch boxes for the light crunchy texture they bring. Lately, brands have paid attention to reducing salt, which is a good thing, and they have also become creative – have you ever tried chickpea puffs?
Our team at Teuko has been aware that some teachers and schools diabolized cookies and forbid them in the kids’ lunch boxes. We find it surprising because, when we curated thousands of school lunch menus from all around the world, we discovered that French kids can even get “beignets” for dessert, some equivalent of a donut. As usual, it’s all about the balance. So, even if you don’t want to encourage treats for every meal, we like the idea to surprise kids with a sweet dessert from time to time.
