It’s back to school season and it’s time to start thinking about back to school shopping for books, supplies and food to pack in your lunch.

Are you a college student on a budget that wants to eat healthier? 

There are a lot of healthy snacks you can make or buy to bring to school; here are just a few good ones to keep in mind.

 1. Avocado toast

This one is pretty popular already. I have seen it all over the place. It is so quick and easy! Take a slice of your favorite bread and put it in the toaster for a minute or two.
