Toddler Trail Mix

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Snack food doesn't have to equal junk food, and that's true at any age. Sure, you can buy a box of high fructose corn syrup covered with artificial flavors pressed into some unnatural shape of the latest cartoon fad. Or you can pull from naturally (as in, from nature) sweetened flavors and whole grain foods that leave you feeling satisfied - and you don't have to be a tree hugger to enjoy it (no offense to said tree huggers)!

If you ever have the chance to stock up on those little sample boxes of cereal (the unsweetened kinds, preferably) then those are perfect for this. If not, a handful of a few different types from your cupboard will do just as well. Mix them together with some dried fruits and for older kids, nuts and you're done! Proportion into individual bags and you have a healthy and sweet snack ready to go for you or your child. Who said you can't have a convenient and healthy snack in one?
