Back to school often brings to mind sharpened pencils and pristine notebooks, fall clothing and fresh haircuts, but every parent knows that the real MVP of a new school year is a fully stocked pantry because these kids just don’t stop eating. Whether you need grab-and-go breakfasts for the carpool or bus, ideas for packed lunches, or after-school snack options to keep your kiddos fueled through homework sessions, club meetings, and team practices, Walmart is your one-stop shop for trusted brands at affordable prices.

Here are 12 of our favorite kid-pleasers that run the gamut from 100% fruit to cookies in disguise (sorry, animal crackers, the jig is up). We’ve chosen individually packaged, ready-to-eat snacks in bulk quantities because feeding kids during a busy school day can feel like launching a t-shirt cannon into a stadium crowd. Good luck, and game on.
