One of the hardest parts of the school year for me and my hubby is keeping up on making the kids’ lunches every single day. It seems like a small thing but can be overwhelming when you have to do it every day for multiple kids, so we are always looking for quick and easy things to put in their lunches. Things that they will actually eat is a plus too! Here’s a quick and fun idea for your kids’ lunches! Kid’s Trail Mix:
You know what would be a great idea with this? Make a big batch of it at the beginning of the week and then keep it in an airtight container or bag and just give them a little bit each day. Perfect, simple solution!
My kids LOVE this stuff! I could hardly keep their hands off while I took pictures! Perfect idea to throw in their lunches because I KNOW they will actually eat it
Easy Kid’s Trail Mix Recipe:
I guess the real beauty behind this is that you can make it with anything that your kiddos will love! I’m going to show you what I did, but you can tweak it to work for your kids.
The thing to shoot for is a nice balance of flavors-some salty, some sweet, some fruit flavored, some more subtle. Just a nice balance.
Here’s what I used
- Mott’s Medleys Fruit Flavored Snacks
- Chocolate chips or candies
- Yogurt covered cranberries
- Banana chips
- Crackers (several types)
- Almonds or other nuts
This was a good blend of flavors! Love the kick of fruity flavor in it:
Now, grab some small containers or little bags and fill them up! Throw it in your kid’s lunch and you’ll have some happy campers on your hands!
(The truth is-I LOVED it too! Yum!)
