Back to School: Easy as 1-2-3

August 19, 2021

It's hard to believe back to school is just around the corner! We're rounding up our best tips and recipes to make the transition as easy as 1-2-3.  

Start the Day Off Right


It's important to start the day with a nutritious breakfast to give kids the fuel they need to get through the school day. Our smoothie recipes made with delicious Arctic® apples are an easy breakfast for busy families on the go! 

Lunch Box Ideas


Arctic apples are pre-sliced and ready to eat, making them extremely convenient for parents to pack in their child’s lunch box. You can also pair them with a container of peanut butter or fruit dip to make lunch time extra fun!

Kids love the freshly picked taste of Arctic apples, making them an easy lunch box staple! Arctic apples stay orchard-fresh longer than other pre-packaged, pre-sliced apples. This means less waste and no more half-eaten apples coming home at the end of the school day.
