Sorry - I guess I posted that wrong. LAST year they had to bring in snacks for the whole class to share. This year in 1st grade, they're bringing it in just for them. Individual sizes.

Right off hand:

goldfish in individual servings
string cheese or cube cheese in indivdual wrapps
animal crackers
dried fruit
bananas
grapes, cherries, berries

Personally, I NEVER use individual portions. It is cheaper to buy a large package and portion it out in baggies or saran wrap.

A few other ideas:

Fruit with a little container of vanilla yogurt for dipping
carrots and ranch
trail mix (you can make your own w/ ingredients she likes)
cheese and crackers
baked tortilla chips and mild salsa for dipping

At our old school they had this type of thing - a snack to eat in the classroom mid-morning. Lunch breaks were separate.

9 times out of 10 I gave a banana.
But during summer I would wrap a mango 'cheek' presliced and give that.

Some kids had carrot/ celery/ cheese sticks.
But our kids wouldn't eat that.

Try to make it healthy and stick to what you know they will eat.

No need to be too fancy.

My daughter doesn't like hummus, cream cheese. So no pita chips and hummus, or bagels and cream cheese. She likes a lot of other things though, so please, toss them out there for me!
there are some sweet flavored soycrisps, i can't remember the name. very tasty, almost like cereal, come in some good flavors

If your kids are young I would try to make something fun. Little sandwiches (like PB & J) cut with a cookie cutter into shapes. Put peanut butter on a piece of waxed paper and add a baggie of fish crackers with a straw so they can go fishing (dip the straw into the PB and then pick up a fish cracker), celery with PB and raisins (ants on a log), an orange with a decoration on the peel (like a jack-o-lantern face or a smiley face - this helps them to start the peeling also).
