Back to school means summer is over and your kids are once again working hard in the classroom. The busy schedules, hours of homework and exposure to new germs all can take their toll on children of all ages.

Here are 10 back-to-school health products to stock up on before your kids head to class.

5Vega Shake & Go Smoothie

Kid-friendly health products

For busy tweens and teens (and their parents), a tasty, shake-with-water smoothie mix is the best way to feed your family a quick breakfast or snack. The Vega Shake & Go Smoothie is rich in plant-based complete protein, greens, omega-3s, fiber and probiotics, and delivers two servings of vegetables per serving. At only 120 calories per serving, this mix is also a diet-friendly choice compared with bottled smoothies, most packaged snacks, and junk food. As your kids are heading to the door, make them a smoothie and feel good that you're sending them out with a wholesome mini-meal in a drink. Vega Shake & Go comes in four flavors: Bodacious Berry, Vanilla Almondilla, Choc-a-lot and Tropical Tango.
