My biggest tip for moms with kids heading back to school is to be prepared. That's been my mantra this year and the reason I've been collecting easy back to school snack ideas. The more you have in line on the front end, the more seamless your transition into a new school year will be. My mom is the most organized person I know. It doesn't come as naturally to me, but I know that putting in that little bit of extra effort goes a long way. It only took me thirty some years to get there. Bwah
