Healthy Trail Mix Recipe for Kids!

Posted on: April 6th, 2013 by Chris No Comments

kidstrailmixI love easy and I love healthy when it comes to snacks for the kids. On our way to a soccer game, we usually have to grab a few bags of goldfish or a box of raisins and run out the door. But before long, the kids are hungry again. So I went looking for a healthy snack that offers substance, nutrition and ease.

Eatingwell.com has great recipes for eating healthy. Here’s a recipe for Healthy Trail Mix:

INGREDIENTS
1/2 ounce whole shelled (unpeeled) almonds
1/4 ounce unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
1/4 ounce dried cranberries
1 tablespoon chopped pitted dates
1 1/2 teaspoons chocolate chips

Put everything together and whola! you have a healthy snack that not only can be used the day you make it, but you can freeze it for future days out.

NUTRITION
Per serving: 102 calories; 6 g fat ( 1 g sat , 3 g mono ); 0 mg cholesterol; 11 g carbohydrates; 1 g added sugars; 3 g protein; 2 g fiber; 29 mg sodium; 69 mg potassium. It also has magnesium, fiber, vitamins E and C.

The kids may balk at the cranberries and dates, but the chocolate chips will have them forgetting the “healthy” stuff!

What snacks do you like to serve your kids? We would love to hear your ideas!
