Summer has finally arrived and it looks as if it is here to stay so we are hitting the beach each week. It also leads to choosing foods that are not sticky or perishable. I mean, I do not know anyone (minus 1 yr. olds) that enjoy sand in their food so while thinking about snacks to pack, I came up with a make your own snack mix.
I tossed some items out on the table and let them place what they wanted into a snack bag. The overall favorite was the combination provided below.
2/3 cup organic multigrain square cereal
2/3 cup organic honey nut O’s
2/3 cup organic raisins
1/3 cup salted sesame seeds
Toss well and munch.
Try putting these out as well: almonds (sliced or whole), dried cranberries, peanuts, mini chocolate chips, pretzels, cheese crackers….my, we have lots of experimenting to do.
