Since the kids aren’t in school they have way more opinions about what kind of meals and snacks they should be eating throughout the day. During the school year they eat what is packed for them or what school is serving them.
Making Trail Mix #KidsintheKitchen
I’m really liking most of their input especially when they can get it themselves. The kids love making their own trail mixes. Shae raided the pantry to come up with this concoction

Chocolate Chips
White Chocolate Chips
Cinnamon Chips
Yogurt Covered Raisins
Chocolate Covered Raisins
Chex cereal
Nuts (cashews, almonds, honey roasted peanuts)
Mini Graham crackers
Choosing the Right Ingredients #kidsinthekitchen
Making Trail Mix #kidsinthekitchenThe ingredient list may sound like a lot but she only added a little bit of each but also tailored the mix to suit her brother. While I would prefer this mix to have MORE dried fruit sans the chocolate coating it’s really a great mix of flavors and textures while still being healthy and satisfying.

    1. Shae did a great job! But, why the two bowls? Was she sharing?

    2. This sounds yummy…also like a good car travel snack!

    3. thanks so much for the party! what a cutie she is 🙂

    4. Betty Baez says

      sounds good!!! yogurt covered raisins?!?!

    5. Looks like a lovely healthy kitchen snack.

    6. First, she is super cute. And I love her haircut.
      Second, this is such a fun idea! She’s way more adventurous than I am. Beyond 2-3 ingredients, I feel I am overextending myself. 🙂

    7. I love seeing kids become more independent and making their own snacks is a huge step. Nice job!

    8. I plan to feature this post Friday at Hobbies and Handicrafts. Thanks for sharing.
