I try to make my kid the “healthy lunch kid.” I would love it if he embraced that title but sadly, he is the “picky eater kid”. So, I’m often shifting new items in and out of his lunch only to find it had been nibbled on and put back in or just flat out not touched at all during lunch. The other day his teacher happened to ask what was in the trail mix I had sent him with. Apparently he wasn’t a fan…but she was! I decided to share my home made mix on here because it is so easy and tasty! I literally buy the ingredients, dump them in a bowl and mix them together! I like to keep the finished product in a large air tight Tupperware container. I will pour it into a mason jar to snack on while I’m doing chores around the house or zip lock bag it for running errands.
UPDATE: Since posting this I’m excited to say all of his rotating teachers have made the trail mix and snack on it during the day for a sweet, healthy, energy snack!
