When it comes to back-to-school eating, Oryana has plenty of great options for easy lunch and after school snacks as well as healthy breakfast options and sustainable food storage solutions. Here are just a few of the many products that you may find helpful and/or tasty for your kiddos (or yourself.)

Onyx Green Eco School Supplies: Start the school year off right with eco friendly school supplies made from mostly recycled or sustainable materials like jute and bamboo.

Kleen Kanteen Insulated Food Canister in the 8oz size makes it easy to replace disposable plastic and styrofoam containers. Double-wall vacuum insulation keeps food hot (or cold) for 5 hours. Perfect for leftover soup, stew, or even hot oatmeal on the go.

Ukonserve Mini Stainless Steel Containers are a non-toxic alternative to plastic containers. These reusable plastic-free food-storage containers are ideal for packing smaller items like raisins, nuts, olives and dips.

Once Again Organic Nut Butter Squeeze Packs are super convenient for snacks on the go. Grab an apple, some celery and carrot sticks, or crackers for a simple, filling snack. Four great butters including almond, peanut, sunflower, and cashew. The oil does separate from the nutmeat so give it a little massage before you open one.

There are plenty of yogurt options out there but Naturi Organic Greek Yogurt is one you should try. The milk comes from grass-fed cows from a small co-op of family farms in Upstate New York. They come in several delicious flavors including maple, pineapple coconut, vanilla cinnamon, lemon, and blackberry.

Evol Uncured Ham, Egg, and Cheddar Sandwich is surprisingly good if you have no time to make something from scratch in the morning. Reasonably priced and you can heat them in the microwave, regular oven, or panini grill.

Cream Cup Dairy Cheese Curds, made locally in Kaleva, Michigan, are fun to eat because every nugget is different. No slicing needed with this cheese, just dig a few out when you need a high protein snack.

Garlic Sesame Sticks in the bulk section are the ultimate crunchy snack. Other great bulk snacks include Greek yogurt almonds, chocolate raisins, dried mango slices, banana chips, glad corn nuts, curry cashews, trail mixes, granola, dried cherries, dried figs, and many more.  

If you ever feel like whipping up a nice treat from “scratch”, consider Foodstirs Organic Snickerdoodle Blondie Mix. You just add egg and butter and it bakes up fast for an afternoon sweet tooth indulgence for little and big kids.
