snack ideas for kids

So…if your kids are anything like mine, they are ALWAYS asking for snacks. We generally have two snack times a day and I try to have things prepared! My favorite snacks are little trail mix bags I make ahead of time. Easy to make!

Take out anything open in your pantry that your kids love…(it’s a great way to use up the last of the box)

  • cereals
  • nuts
  • popcorn
  • dried fruit
  • pretzels
  • {I usually add one or two “fun” items}
  • chocolate chips
  • marshmallows

I add all desired ingredients to a bowl…since we have bigger kids and a littler kiddo…I make two batches! Big kids mix and Little kid mix. I scoop a generous handful into plastic bags and put them in a container. Easy to grab and hand out to hungry little ones!

My kids put their baggies back on the counter when they are done, and they are easy to re-use!
