I have been a mother for over eleven years. HOW could I have never thought to do this before??? We made our own snack mix this evening. I let the boys all choose the ingredients. They chose things they actually liked, so that they'll EAT all of it as opposed to picking out what they do not care for. It was a success! Yay!
Looks yummy, no? After mixing it all up nicely, I scooped snack sized portions into little Ziplocs, so they are easily grabbed from the pantry when needed. The cheerios are a grain. The yogurt is a dairy. The nuts are a protein, and the raisins are a fruit! Go with it... never mind all the sugar and salt.... there are worse snacks, I assure you! :) They're kids, they might as well enjoy sugar once in awhile, while they can still afford to! :)
