We’re talking kid-approved options like fruit snacks, chewy bars, cheese sticks, and yogurt. For more inspiration, check out these store-bought products for easy vegan school lunches.

GoGo squeeZ AlmondBlend Pudding

Yes, this kid-friendly company has fruit-forward pouches filled with applesauce and other fruit and veg purees, but they’ve also got some creamier treats to try.

We love pairing these with freshly cut strawberries and pretzels.
