We are officially in back-to-school season, and I’m slowly but surely checking everything we need off our shopping list. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the stress of transitioning from summer break to school. That’s why I was relieved to find a few amazing products that helped to put my mind at ease. Follow along as I share four items for a breezy back-to-school!
Four Items for a Breezy Back-to-School
1. CORE Foods— Everything feels busier when school is back in session, so I make it a priority to stock up on healthy, yummy snacks for when I need a little pick-me-up. I’m so happy that I discovered CORE Foods, a brand that specializes in delicious bars and bites that are organic, plant-based, gluten free, and certified keto. And did I mention only 90 calories with zero grams of sugar? My favorites are the Double Chocolate Chip Brownie Bites and the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownie Bites. The Double Chocolate Chip are extra fudgy and chocolately while the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip have that bit of added nuttiness for the perfect balance of salty and sweet. The best part is that Charlie loves them too. They are an easy snack to have ready in the car when I pick her up from school!
2. Vitamin Friends— It seems impossible to get all of the necessary vitamins and nutrients into our diets at a daily basis, but that’s where these gummy vitamins from Vitamin Friends come in to fill in the gaps! The Kids Vegetarian Multivitamin Gummies contain 18 vitamins and minerals plus choline for added brain power. It gives me peace of mind to know that Charlie will have a little extra boost to get her through her school day.
The Kids Vegan Focus Gummies are great for increased focus and concentration. It is recommended to take six gummies a day for two weeks for quick results, but you can also do two a day for a more gradual approach. Charlie LOVES the berry flavor. And better yet, they are Kosher certified, Top 9 Allergen Free, and made in the US!

3. Girl Scouts x Western Chief– Girl Scouts collaborates with Western Chief (one of the oldest rain boot makers of 131+ years) to bring us their very first five-item waterproof kid and adult rain boot collection! I picked up a matching set of the “It’s Raining Cookies Rain Boot”. They are sooo cute with the classic Girl Scout green and favorite Girl Scout cookies. These boots are mid-height with great traction and two handles to easily pull the boots on and off. A great addition to your child’s back-to-school wardrobe as we get closer to fall!
4. WowWee – Fashion Fidgets– Charlie has been loving these Fashion Fidget dolls from WowWee! They come in adorable outfits and include at least three fidget features for stress relief and focusing benefits. Each doll also includes a keychain to attach to a backpack! These dolls are so nice for when I need to keep Charlie occupied for a few minutes, and she has been very enthusiastic lately about building her collection. I’m sure we’ll have to have all 18 dolls by the end of the year!
