Back to school is right around the corner for our gang.

We’ve had an awesome summer filled with delicious food, lots of family time, and some great adventures together.

But I am ready for the routine that school brings. I love school supply shopping and making yummy lunches for my kids to enjoy.

Over the summer, our house is more of a free for all — we eat at random times and don’t have a set schedule for much of anything.

And I’m a girl who loves a good schedule.

So with back to school means consistent menu planning which makes my little OCD heart happy.

One of my favorite places to prepare for school is actually Walgreens.

I love our local store — it’s bright and clean and all the employees are so friendly and helpful.

I also love the products they provide. I can grab everything from toiletries to medicine to school supplies to lunchbox essentials.

Nice! Products at Walgreens

Nice! Products at Walgreens

Walgreens has some super tasty snacking options. I stock up for school snacks, lunchboxes, and after school.

Because with three growing boys, it seems like there is no such thing as enough food on hand!

Walgreens Nice!(R) products deliver the best in flavor and quality. They have a huge variety of items so there is something for everyone to love. They have a great balance of healthier items to nourish plus “indulgence” treats as well.

All the Nice! products use real, simple, quality ingredients with no PHO’s or trans fats. They also feature transparent labeling, so I know exactly what we’re getting — which makes me feel good about buying and serving to my entire family.

I stop at our Walgreens about once a week — I love wandering the aisles, using a few a coupons, and picking up all sorts of goodies along the way.

Since our whole family loves to snack on their delicious Nice! products, I like to stay stocked up. The single-serve options are ideal for quick snacks and lunchbox packing. Mama needs to save time and her sanity anywhere possible. ?

Some of our favorites include:

  • chocolate chip cookies lunch packs
  • peanut butter filled pretzels
  • trail mix
  • beef jerky
  • white cheddar popcorn
  • veggie sticks lunch packs
  • white cheddar puffs

I have a basket in the pantry that the boys can choose snacks from when they’re hungry.

I also have a little snack bag I keep in the car so we can avoid “I’m starving” meltdowns while we’re busy running errands or going to events.

I pop items into the boy’s backpacks and lunch boxes to keep them fueled up for their busy days.

I also pack Nice! products into Steve’s lunchbox every day for him to enjoy at work — he loves the beef jerky, as does our oldest, Jorryn. Plus, I munch on them myself while working! Their organic white cheddar puffs are my weakness.

Of course, beyond snacking, a healthy, complete lunch is important to me. I want to know my boys are enjoying the best while they’re busy at school.

This chicken salad sandwich recipe is one of our favorite go-to meals and it’s perfect along with Nice! products for a spectacular, protein-rich lunch!

Sometimes, I make this mix for dinner and then serve it leftover the next day. It’s creamy, crunchy, and delicious. I love how hearty and filling it is. It’s an easy, homemade classic that is quick to make and simple to customize for everyone’s tastes.
