Send them back in style with delicious snacks from your favourite local Italian bakery in Woodbridge! There are tons of tasty school-appropriate breakfast, lunch, and snack ideas for busy parents to choose from and while you’re at it, you can even pick up a little something for yourself! Oh, and don’t forget the teacher!

It’s understandable that mornings with kids are super busy and sometimes you just don’t have the time to prepare their school lunches and snacks in advance. So here are a few excellent ideas you can take advantage of whenever you’re in a bind.

Coffee Cakes

What better way to make back-to-school a piece of cake for your kiddos than to pack them a piece of coffee cake for snack! Of course, there’s no actual coffee or espresso in them. These cakes go well with a piping hot cup of coffee, but in your kids’ case, a nice glass of milk or chocolate milk goes just as well! Your kids will love tasting authentic blueberry, lemon, cherry, or marble coffee cakes from a high-end Italian bakery in Woodbridge. This delectable spongy and flavourful cake can be purchased in an assortment of sizes ranging from 8” to a half slab to suit the needs of your family. You can easily slice it up and store it in small containers or wrap it in tinfoil and pack it away in your kids’ lunch bags.

Italian Cookies

Nothing beats scrumptious freshly baked-to-order Italian cookies! If you’re looking for a fun and creative way to start the school year off right in Vaughan, then handmade gourmet sugar cookies are definitely up your alley! Or, if your kids prefer more of crumbly and buttery texture, then shortbread cookies are the way to go. They’re available in different flavours including white chocolate lemon shortbread and chocolate dipped shortbread. These cookies are also available in colourful and funky back-to-school themed variations to keep in the spirit of the season.

Danishes and Croissants

We’ve got a medley of danish and croissant flavours that are sure to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. From frutta de bosco and chocolate caramel crunch, to apple danishes and many more flavours that can be made upon request, you’re sure to find something for your kids and for yourself as well. To get the most value out of your purchase, though, you should consider getting multiple mini croissants and danishes. That way, you can try a multitude of flavours such as plain, chocolate, apricot, and more. These miniature delicacies are perfect to serve to your kids as breakfast treats or pack them in their school lunches! Plain croissants can even be turned into sandwiches with prosciutto, bacon and eggs, or eggs and ricotta cheese.

Whenever you’re strapped for innovative lunch and snack ideas for your kids or even if you’re simply running short on time, stop by Sweet Boutique in Woodbridge and we’ll make sure you and your kids start the day off right with a delicious and hearty breakfast. Our bakery is family-oriented, so we fully understand the hustle and bustle of getting your kids up and ready for school every morning.
