Must-Have School Essentials

Aug 03, 2015 06:04AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle



Class is almost in session, and many busy parents have a few more items to check off their shopping lists. Help your kids get the grades this school year with a little helpful advice on top picks. From savory snacks to fuel their days to water bottles to keep them hydrated, savvy parents know stocking up now is the best way to get their little learners ready for the academics ahead.

Favorite Flavors in a Classic Snack

Want to pack a snack you can feel good about? Sabra's smooth Classic Hummus has been blended with the fresh pizza inspired flavor kids love, including herbs and spices such as fresh basil and oregano. The single serving 2-ounce containers pair well with pita chips and vegetables, and are easy to slip in a lunch box for mini meals and snacks. Find them in the deli near other Sabra products, and visit Sabra.com to learn more.

H2O on the Go

A durable reusable water bottle sized just for kids will make your back-to-school routine even easier. All Nalgene bottles are made in the USA with BPA- and BPS-free Tritan with hard-to-lose and easy-to-clean parts. Kids love the leak-free ease, fun colors and graphics. Parents love dishwasher-safe parts that carry a lifetime guarantee. Perfect for lunch boxes, backpacks, sports bags and more. The 12-ounce, On-the-Fly locking bale caps have an MSRP of $9.99. Visit www.nalgene.com for more.

Data in a Flash

For days when school work becomes homework, or for lengthy projects that go back and forth, a USB flash drive is an inexpensive way help keep all of your student's work saved in one convenient location. Devices in the 8 to 16G range will be adequate for most school-related needs, and consider adding a lanyard or attaching to a keychain for easy access. Visit your local retailer to explore pricing and options.

Are you ready? A back-to-school checklist

Make sure your kids have what they need to succeed this year. Here's a checklist to ensure you've covered all the back-to-school bases before the studying starts:
  • If not already registered, get your child enrolled.
  • Contact the school office to find out what day and time classes start.
  • Ensure your child is up to date on all immunizations.
  • Schedule eye and physical exams, if needed.
  • Make sure emergency contact paperwork is up to date with the school office.
  • Obtain a list of school supplies from the office or school website.
  • Look over the dress code policy.
