Reindeer FoodIngard here, when my children were young and we were living back east, a dear neighbor (thank you Lisa) shared this cute gift with us.

Here is what I remember she did:

  • 1/4 cup oats (old fashioned or quick)
  • 1 Tablespoon sprinkles
  • 1 Tablespoon raisins (I used cranberries)
  • 1teaspoon red or green colored sugar sprinkles
  • You can even put in the colored paper dots from a hole punch (I didn’t)
  • Mix these ingredients together and place in resealable baggie

Print up this poem on your computer or by hand and affix to the baggie:

Reindeer Food

Sprinkle on the lawn at night,

The moonlight will make it shine so bright.

As the reindeer fly and roam,

this will guide their way to your home.

Thank you for posting this. I have been looking for a reindeer food recipe. Our local tractor and feed store used to sell little bags and it has become a tradition in our home. We always leave snacks for Santa and the reindeer, it's a fun little tradition our home :)


Thank you so much Ingard. Kiddo left his reindeer food at school & I have been trying to find something similar to what he was talking about. You are a life saver! Muwahhh!
