Kids Korner – Creating Your Favorite Snack Mix

Kids Korner – Creating Your Favorite Snack Mix

Are you always hungry? Do you ever have trouble finding a snack that you enjoy, that is healthy, and that you don’t get tired of? This month, I’ll be sending snack recipes for healthy kids on the go. These recipes are things you can make by yourself or with your parents that will help you fill up and stay healthy!

Today’s recipe is for Trail Mix. This recipe can be changed to include whatever mix ingredients you enjoy. I have below a couple of ideas for trail mix recipes, but feel free to make substitutions, such as using pretzels instead of crackers, dried cranberries instead of raisins, etc. Have fun making this mix up and keep it on hand for a quick and healthy snack.
