Back-To-School: Snack Attack
Posted on August 01 2022,
The only back-to-school shopping list you actually need! Back-to-school means homework + baseball practice + violin lessons + playdates, etc. AKA juggling a million things and no extra time for extra complicated snacks. I've curated a little list of snack ideas for you, full of Greek sweet + savory goodness, to make snacking with the kids as easy as 1-2-3.
On the sidelines with other parents during an afterschool soccer practice? The Mediterranean Sampler (pictured above) is easy to make, great for sharing, + easy to pack into a large Tupperware for on-the-go snacking. It's full of protein, plant-based goodness, veggies + dried fruits, handcrafted pita bread + a little feta dip. Add whatever your heart desires. The more variety, the better.
Have ten minutes before you rush out the door to take the kids to practice? Here's a quick + healthy snack (pictured above): Greek yogurt (I love this brand) drizzled with a naturally sweet organic honey loaded with health benefits + topped with protein-packed rolled oats and/or granola.
Plopped at the kitchen counter trying to help with math homework? Mini appetizer medley for your minis is perfect for a little extra brain boost power (pictured above). Nutritious + delicious. Mastiha farmer's market exclusive meatballs + fiber-filled hummus paired with some lightly toasted pita bread. Swap out the hummus for any one of our homemade dips.
About to head out to 'Meet the Teachers' night? These handheld, lightweight + flavorful triangles are perfect for on-the-go snacking. Load up on trays of our phyllo triangles - pictured above. We offer FIVE different varieties: lamb, spanakopita, leek + cheese, tiropita, + mushroom. (Keep extras in the freezer for freshness, then pull out + pop in the oven for a quick half hour).
Car packed up + ready for a road trip to drop off your kid at college for their first semester away? Fuel up, before you hit the road, with this superfood snack (pictured above): pita bread rolled out into a flatbread, topped with tzatziki sauce, Spartan extra virgin olive oil, + baby spinach.
Shop our site + stock up before all the craziness of back-to-school comes. Let us make it a little easier for you; you've got enough on your plate. We'll bake, you take.
