My kids LOVE Welch’s® Fruit Snacks! Don’t your kids love them too? They are a staple in my kids’ lunch boxes all year long. Stella and Mitch sometimes have them as an after-school snack and our neighborhood kids love to have them too. They’re just such a perfect go-to snack that we always have on hand. Since we always have different varieties in the house, I decided to organize them in a way that makes it even easier for the kids to pick and choose which kind they want from the pantry. It also helps me see how many we have left so I can keep them in stock at home!
The back to school season can be so hectic and busy with sports, new homework routines, and getting back into having a structured day. It’s so nice to have an easy grab-and-go snack that the kids love. I don’t know about your children, but mine come home from school starving. I think they look forward to a familiar snack and a little downtime before jumping into homework and after school activities. Welch’s Fruit Snacks are America’s Favorite Fruit Snacks and because fruit is the 1st ingredient, parents love them as a snacking choice.

This year, my daughter will be taking more dance classes after school than ever before. I imagine that her 4th grade homework won’t be easy, so after-school snacking needs to be! Since Welch’s Fruit Snacks are made with Real Fruit, you can really taste the difference. It’s fun to have a variety of flavors on hand to give my kids more choices. They LOVE the Mixed Fruit, but have you ever tried the Superfruit Mix? They are so tasty!
To organize the different varieties that we have, I used something you might not suspect would ever end up in the pantry! These beautiful clear containers are the PERFECT size for organizing fruit snacks. They keep the packages upright; clearly displaying the different choices. I love that the containers aren’t bulky so they hardly take up any space on the shelves. Find all the wonderful Welch’s Fruit Snacks HERE.
These clear containers are designed to hold cosmetics (like makeup brushes, lip liners, etc.). However, they are just as useful in the kitchen for organizing food as well! Each small clear bin holds about 15 packs of fruit snacks. That means, once I stock up, I don’t have to think about it for a while. Best of all, the clear organizers take up less space making them double as space savers!

When do your kids go back to school? It seems like most kids go back in August, but our district has always gone back in September (after Labor Day). However, they decided to switch things up so for the next couple of years, they are moving our start date earlier and earlier. I think we are going to love it! I know I’m going to love getting back into a good routine and watching my kids flourish. It’s incredible how fast time flies by each year. The older they get, the faster time seems to be going. Nonetheless, I adore watching my kids grow!
