From classes to classes, there are times when a snack could really help with your hunger. Especially if you’ve missed breakfast, you’ll want a hearty snack to fill you until lunch time.

Stokes, who recently joined us this year carries many affordable and convenient lunch/snack boxes, such as the one you see above: ‘Yogurt To Go Container’. The container features two accessible compartments, one for granola and one for yogurt.
