Beef jerky has come a long way in recent years, and you can now find jerky in all different flavors and different meats, including turkey jerky and even this mushroom jerky.

Having fresh fruit on hand, prewashed, and on the counter, so you easily spot it on the way out the door to class, is very convenient and keeps you eating healthy. If you are a dip fan, purchase your favorite fruit and vegetables with your favorite dips to bring along. Some popular options for dips are hummus, yogurt, or ranch, and other salad dressings.

Apple sauce or other fruit in on-the-go pouches is a good option if you prefer not to carry a spoon around with you.
