North Carolina-Made After School Snacks

It’s back to school time! As you’re busy gathering pencils, binders, and other back to school essentials, don’t forget all about snack time, particularly after school. After a long day of hitting the books, your kids will need something tasty to help perk them up.

Don’t just give them any old sugary thing though. Give them North Carolina-made after school snacks that are nutritious and delicious. Here are some to look for, all found in Taste and See NC City Boxes.

Bungalow Picnic Company Granola

With two great flavors – peanut butter banana and dark chocolate sunflower – your kids won’t be able to stop munching on this granola. And that should be fine by you too since they’re made with organic coconut oil and have no preservatives, cholesterol or trans fats. They’re also wheat, dairy and soy free. You can even use them to top off yogurt at breakfast for some extra crunch!
