New teachers, new subjects, new backpacks, and new classmates. The beginning of the school year is filled with chaos and emotional rollercoasters. Whether it’s the first day of kindergarten or a victory lap of college, juggling new routines and challenges can be a handful. Sometimes it barely feels like there’s time to eat, which is why snacks—ones that you can make in big batches, pre-pack in baggies, and throw in the car/backpack/cupboard—are almost as important as meals. Make a few of these recipes and you'll have enough fuel to keep going—and feed hungry bellies—all week long.
