With the school year ready to start back up again, a supply of ideas for back to school snacks is essential for keeping kids nourished while they learn.

Although it's easy to buy pre-packaged snacks in-store, many of these back to school recipes are ones that you can make on your own. These snacks range from sweet to savory, the indulgent to the ultra healthy. Despite this range, these snacks are easy to prepare, pack and enjoy. Rather than snacking on a bag of potato chips one of the easiest things to swap white potatoes for are sweet potatoes, kale or even dried out tomatoes. With the right seasoning, it's easy to recreate a kid's favorite flavors too.
