5 Healthy Back-to-School Snacks from That’s it.
Whether you’re fueling up for sports or homework, these bars are the perfect snack. Made with only real fruit, what’s not to love? It’s everything we enjoy about fruit without any of the mess. We’ll take one in each flavor!
For a slightly sweet and very crunchy snack, these Crunchables are an easy choice. While staying true to the brand’s MO, apples are the only ingredient. You know we love to see it. Stash these in your locker or dorm room and get crunching!
Next, we’re talking gut-friendly choices. While the Probiotic Fruit Bars come in a variety of fiber-rich flavors, we tend to choose the mango every time. Can you blame us? Snag a serving of produce plus two billion probiotics with this option!
Made for the sweet tooth snacker, these truffles are the perfect better-for-you treat. While we love all the fruity flavors, the Dark Chocolate Banana Truffles are our go-to sweet. In addition to being made with simple ingredients, these truffles are the perfect indulgence.
We love pairing these mini bars with a handful of our favorite nuts and seeds. It’s the best sweet and salty snack ever! These Minis are great for the lunchroom, carpool line, school bus, sports field, and so much more.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
