As you prepare your kids for the busy school year ahead, remember to re-stock your fridge and pantry too! Include plenty of breakfast foods, nutritious recipe staples and grab-n-go snacks on your shopping list to help you eat healthy in a hurry.
Breakfast to Go
With no time to spare during the morning rush, keep breakfast options fast with whole-grain cereal bars, hard-boiled eggs, Greek yogurt and new Kellogg’s® Special K™ Breakfast Shakes. Creamy Double Chocolate, Red Berries and French Vanilla flavors are complete with the one-two punch of 10 grams of protein and five grams of fiber per bottle. Pair with a piece of portable fresh fruit to make a well-balanced breakfast. When you need a snack on the run, try their three varieties of protein shakes too.A breakfast that combines fiber from whole grains, fruits and vegetables with protein from low-dairy foods and eggs energizes and helps control hunger pangs until lunchtime. Emerald® Breakfast on the Go!® pouches include Emerald® Walnuts, Peanuts or Almonds plus a unique combination of dried fruit and crunchy granola clusters and provide at least three grams of fiber and protein. You can sprinkle it into yogurt or cottage cheese, or simply enjoy it straight from the pouch. Wake up to a different balanced breakfast each morning with eight different varieties to choose from.
No matter how hectic the day, avoid skipping meals whenever possible. Carry a portable, protein-packed yogurt snack like Müller® FrütUp, Corner™ or Greek- Style Corner™. Brought to you by Quaker®, parfait-style FrütUp features a light, airy fruit mousse on top and comes in Splendid Strawberry, Blueberry Bliss and Peach Passion Fruit varieties. For indulgent add-ins, try Corner™ or thicker and creamier Greek Style Corner™ that offer yogurt on one side of the cup and mix-ins on the other. Enjoy fruit mousse, Caramelized Almonds, Honeyed Apricot or Crunchy Granola and more.
Fast Fruits and Veggies
Fill your fridge and fruit bowl with seasonal produce to eat at snack time and as part of your weekly meals. Sweet and juicy yellow- and white-fleshed Moonlight Fruit® Nectarines and Peaches add the taste of summer to any eating occasion. Use them in smoothies, yogurt parfaits and desserts, or pair them with spicy ingredients like our Nectarine Salsa. When selecting stone fruits, choose nectarines with a firm texture and smooth skin and peaches with firm, fuzzy skin that yield to gentle pressure. Store at room temperature until ready to eat.
Make meals fast with ingredients like ready-to-use canned tuna and beans, jarred pasta sauce, pre-washed salad blends and dried herbs and spices, like New McCormick® Perfect Pinch™ Seasonings. These perfectly blended seasonings come in an array of global flavors including Asian, Southwest, Tuscan, Cajun and Caribbean Jerk. Simply shake them on before cooking to revive everyday chicken, rice, potatoes, seafood and vegetables. Give it a try with our island-inspired Caribbean Jerk Chicken with Nectarine Salsa that’s ready in 30 minutes! If you’re watching your sodium intake, opt for Salt-Free varieties.
Hydration to Go!

Stock up on bottled water, 100 percent juice or low-fat milk boxes to take along to after-school activities, sports practices and lunch break. New Apple & Eve® Waterfruits™ are a unique combination of water, real fruit juice and coconut water. They contain just 40 calories per serving with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.
