Going here and hurrying there, trying to keep up with the to-do lists and the over abundance of laundry, the dinner planning, homework and the list goes on... and on top of all of that you want to offer your kiddos healthy snacks.
We've got fresh fruit and veggies down in our house but sometimes I need something that is all put together and ready to-go for church, going to work or wherever so we've been making these healthy snack mixes every few months.
And I know when you are eating real foods, buying pre-packaged snacks can be like a needle-in-the-haystack when it comes to finding something healthy and it can also be hard on your budget, but these are only as expensive as you make them!
What you need:
Anything that your kids might like but here are some ideas:
walnuts or other nuts
yogurt covered pretzels
sunflower seeds or other seeds
craisins or other dried fruit
a low sugar cereal
crackers, like Annie's bunnies
dark chocolate chips
fruit chips, like banana chips
What to do:
- Gather your specialized variety of food choices along with a few zip bags and a cup
- If you have a child ask them to help and decide how many of each choice they will fill into each bag.
- Fold bag over cup for easy filling and add the food, we added about 10 pieces of each kind of food.
- Zip the bags and store in the pantry or cupboard for easy to-go snacking
