With back-to-school season in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about school snacks and lunches as well as great, easy after school snacks. Around my house, we stock up on healthy staples like plain Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, homemade granola, and whole grain bread. To add a little fun to these go-to eats, we also have sweets like fruit jam, honey, and Mott’s® Fruit Flavored Snacks at the ready. A spoonful of jam or honey, or a few fruit snacks, can turn a less-than-thrilling lunch or after-school snack into something fun and exciting!

Mott’s® Flavored Fruit Snacks are made with fruit juice and contain no artificial dyes. They also have 100 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, meaning they are a great substitute for other less wholesome sweet snacks. Best of all, kids love them!

These Mott’s® Fruit Flavored Snack apple parfaits are super fun, and turn the hum drum into a fantastic, colorful treat. Even better, these pretty snack parfaits can be made in minutes flat!
