Back to School Snack Stock-Up at BJ’s Wholesale Club
Disclosure: I am a BJ’s Wholesale Club brand ambassador. All opinions are mine alone. This is a sponsored post.
School is starting next week for my oldest – her first day of kindergarten! We are having a lot of different feelings about it, but mostly excitement for my girl. It is hard to believe summer is nearly over.
One of my biggest concerns as we transition to all day/every day kindergarten is will she be eating enough to sustain the energy she needs to last all day. My kids eat a lot – breakfast/snack/lunch/snack/dinner which often times makes me feel like I am serving food all day long.
Anyway, I do snack stock-up shopping at least twice a month at BJ’s Wholesale Club. I need my snacks in bulk for our family of five. There is just no other way around it.
I want to share with you some of our favorite snacks that are also perfect for school as they are *allergy-friendly*. My kids do not have any food allergies, but they have several friends that do – so we have to be mindful when packing lunches this year. Plus, the school has rules that we must follow for food allergies to keep everyone safe.

BJ’s Wholesale Club offers such a wide variety of snacks for my family that it is truly one-stop shopping for us now that we are settling into our back-to-school groove. I can’t tell you how much easier this makes my life – the time I save alone shopping at one store instead of driving around to several stores…that is time I can spend with the kids!
What kind of snacks do your kids enjoy in their lunch? Are any of the snacks I listed above a staple in your back to school stash?
