KIND Snacks Make Back to School Easy and Delicious

Back-to-school season is both exciting and challenging for kids and adults alike. As a registered dietitian and mom, I understand how transitioning to new routines requires planning and patience, especially when feeding a family. KIND offers so many delicious and nutritious breakfast and snack options to help nourish busy people at home and on the go.

Getting kids and adults ready for school and work in the mornings can be quite hectic! The best way to approach breakfast and snack foods is to look for nutrient-rich items as your staples and build around them. A nutrient-dense food is defined as providing vitamins, minerals, and other health-promoting components with little added sugar, saturated fat, and sodium. KIND is unique in that each of its products lead with a nutrient-dense first ingredient such as nuts, whole grains, or fruit.

KIND Product Offerings Make Breakfast a Breeze

KIND has so many wholesome AND tasty products that make this time of year easier, whether it’s packing a snack in your kid’s lunch or looking for new and healthy options to add to your breakfast.

KIND Breakfast Protein Bars are a great way to start your day off with nutrient-dense ingredients like 100% whole grain oats. Made with five super grains – whole wheat, millet, buckwheat, amaranth and quinoa – these textured, oat-based bars come with 8g of protein per serving and delicious flavors like Dark Chocolate Cocoa or Caramel Peanut. For breakfast, I love to crumble one on top of Greek yogurt with berries or a banana for a satisfying meal complete with protein, fiber, and unsaturated fats.

Snack Smart with KIND Nut Bars

Any time of the day is a good time for a KIND nut bar. I love that these bars are available in over 20 fabulous flavors. Whether it’s a fruit-forward bar like the Cranberry Almond or my favorite, the classic Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, KIND bars are full of nutrient-dense foods. There is something for every taste preference, and if looking for a smaller portion size of a classic KIND nut bar, consumers can find KIND Minis that are 100 calories or less.

NEW KIND Kids is a School-Friendly Treat

This year, with the launch of KIND Kids, KIND is creating a great way to be school-friendly with soft baked kid’s bars that both children and parents love. Why? As always, these bars are nutritious and lead with the nutrient-dense first ingredient, 100% whole grain oats, and feature real, dried blueberries. They’re also free of tree nuts and peanuts making them school-friendly and a “no-think” choice for parents when packing this wholesome treat in a lunchbox or for after-school sports practice. With delicious and classic breakfast ingredients and flavors like chocolate chip and blueberry muffin, kids love them too! It’s a win-win for everyone because KIND believes snacking should be fun.

Whatever your back-to-school looks like, KIND has you covered! Always leading with nutrient-dense first ingredients like nuts or whole grains, their variety of products are ideal for you to enjoy any time of the day to help your family maintain a healthy lifestyle.
