Need a quick, easy, fun, portable snack idea?  Try making your own trail mix!  Simply decide (with your children's help, if you want!) what ingredients you want to include, combine in a bowl, and transfer to zip-closure storage baggies!  Our favorite ingredient ideas include:

  • Crunchy cereal (i.e., Chex, Cheerios, Grape Nuts, etc.)
  • Granola
  • Mini pretzels
Fruits and other goodies:
  • Craisins (any variety!)
  • Dehydrated fruits (i.e., cherries, apricots, banana chips, etc.)
  • Chopped figs or dates
  • Raisins
  • Shelled sunflower seeds
  • M&Ms
  • Reese's Pieces
  • Chocolate chips (white, dark or milk!)
  • Wasabi peas
  • Crystallized ginger
  • Dry roasted edamame
  • Whole roasted almonds
  • Candied walnuts
  • Shelled pistachios
  • Cashews
  • Peanuts
  • Honey-roasted pecans
One note of caution: Always remember to take into account any food sensitivities or allergies before deciding on what to include in your trail mix!
