Tips for Preparing and Packing Christmas Snacks

Plan ahead: Schedule and prepare snacks in advance to save time during busy mornings. Never save a recipe or shopping trip for a school morning!

Get the kids involved: Encourage them to help with preparation, creating a sense of ownership and excitement over the snack.

Safe and practical packaging: Choose appropriate containers and packaging that maintain freshness and prevent spills, and that kids can easily open without help.

What snacks to bring to a school Christmas party

When it comes to a holiday party, you can go homemade or pre-packaged. Neither is bad – but verify with your school what is allowed. Some have strict rules due to food allergies!

Easy Grab-and-Go Premade Snack Ideas

No time to cook? No problem! Here are some pre-packaged snacks that are perfect for the school Christmas party.

  • Nut-free trail mix packets
  • Mini granola bars
  • Sliced fruit cups
  • Veggie sticks with individual hummus cups
  • Cheese and whole grain cracker packs
  • Yogurt tubes or squeezable yogurt pouches
  • Popcorn snack bags
  • Rice cakes or mini rice cake stacks
  • Dried fruit and seed packets
  • Fruit and vegetable squeeze pouches

Benefits of Homemade Christmas Snacks for School

If you have the time, energy, and interest in making a homemade treat for school, it can be a great option.

Some homemade treats are healthier than processed and sugary store-bought snacks.

Once again, be sure to ask about dietary considerations and cater to allergies, dietary restrictions, and individual needs.
