As a mom, we tend to pack with love. We lug around huge purses packed with on-the-go snacks, bandages, random small toys, and whatever stray crayons we pick off the floors of our often disastrous cars. We pack school lunches for the varied palettes of our picky children and even toss in the occasional lunch box note when we think of it. Moms are like the pack mules of love!
But what about our kids teachers? Here’s how to pack some love into the first day of school with a back-to-school survival kit of school supplies and an assortment of easy, on-the-go snacks like Lance Sandwich Crackers and Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels to give our teachers the energy they need to educate our awesome kids on Day One and beyond…

Look for Lance Sandwich Crackers and Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels in your local grocery store today! I found mine down the cracker aisle.
My kids have been snacking on these flavorful, hearty snacks since I have brought them home! As a mom, I love that the sandwich crackers are filled with real peanut butter and cheese and make snacking on-the-go super easy for our constantly on-the-go kids!
And I never hesitate grabbing a bag of pretzels for their low fat attributes (with a touch of sea salt!) to toss into my own purse.
