When thinking about school snacks it’s a balance to make sure they are easy to pack, tasty and nutritious. In our house, Trail Mix has become a go-to snack. Even when creating a trail mix without nuts (because of school regulations), trail mix can still be a great protein source. Trail mix meets all of my requirements for snack time, is easy to make and easy to transport – to school, work, or when travelling.

You can select what you want to put in it and customize it for your family. Here’s a list of our trail mix ingredients:

  • Unsalted Almonds
  • Unsalted Walnuts, halved
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Raisins
  • Salted Sunflower Seeds

In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients together – we tend to use equal parts of everything, but sometimes a little bit less cranberries. It’s a simple combination but even my kids will eat it!
