Back to School With Daiya

Posted on July 25, 2018

It’s almost that time again – the time when teachers, kids and college students head back to school.  While you’re adjusting to a more hectic schedule and waking up early, the last thing you need is to be worrying about what you’re going to eat. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with some great, easy and portable meal ideas that make your school days easier and keep your taste buds happy.


Back to school isn’t just hard for the students. Teachers can feel the back to school blues as well. After a busy night of grading papers and creating lesson plans, having a delicious, wholesome and plant-based lunch the next day can make a huge difference. A hearty salad like our Hon’y Mustard Salad with Roasted Chickpeas makes a great base for a lunch and can be prepped easily for the entire week. Throw in some of our Cheddar Style Farmhouse Blocks and fresh fruit, and you’ll have a nutritious meal that gives you the energy to make it through a long day of teaching.

College Students

Nobody wants to sign up for morning classes, but sometimes you just don’t have a choice. It can be hard to fit in a nutritious meal before class, and we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Grabbing a Daiya Greek Yogurt Alternative is a great option, and if you have the time, you can top it with some fresh fruit and granola for a filling, tasty breakfast. Bring along some of our dairy-free cheeze sticks with some crackers to avoid that mid-morning crash, and you’ll be all set until lunch.

On The Go

A simple smoothie makes a great snack when you’re on the go, or you can bulk it up with some extra fibre, healthy fats and protein for a quick, easy breakfast to enjoy before class. It’s even a great way to get in a serving of vegetables! Throw in some Daiya Greek Yogurt Alternative for unbelievable dairy-free creaminess that will keep you full for hours
