Frugal Back To School Snacks

You know how much I dislike 100 calorie snacks because I think you can just prepare your own snacks and it’s cheaper? Well, last year I found some great ideas for 100 calorie snacks that are frugal and (some) healthy! So, go grab some snack bags and create some do-it-yourself snacks for the kids.

  • 1 small orange
  • 15 mini carrots
  • 3 TBS raisins
  • 6 reduced fat Triscuits
  • 1 cup celery
  • 1 cup watermelon
  • 13 animal crackers
  • 3/4 oz cheddar cheese
  • 2 Twizzlers
  • 7/8 cup cheerios
  • 2/3 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cheese stick and 5 slices ham

These are all 100 calorie snacks that are great for school lunches. You know the other great thing? Most of them can be bought at ALDI for super cheap.

So, your turn: What snacks are your kids gonna be taking that are cheap?
