Food Friday: Kids Trail Mix

I had wonderful intentions of posting often this week but our son decided sleep was not important to him. Bedtime has been late, he gets up early, and naps are super short (15-30 minutes) so there has been no me time.

Today's recipe comes courtesy of our Parents as Teachers person. She came by this morning and my son was the best behaved he has been in a week. Together, they made trail mix and our little monkey went crazy over it. I've made trail mix before but it has been ages. This is something he can help make and feel proud of it.

Kids Trail Mix

Golden Grahams
Honey Nut Cheerios
Chocolate Chips or M&M's

Mix together and put in individual bags. Let kids mix with a spoon or put a lid securely on the container and shake well.

Feel free to add whatever you want, this is just a starter recipe. Depending on your child's likes and dislikes, other ideas are dried fruit, raisins, peanuts, other types of cereal, etc.

It sounds yummy. I had one son that took little "catnaps" and I thought he'd never sleep longer than a few minutes. Now I can't get him up in the morning, lol!
