Mr. C has just started preschool. The highlight? Snack time of course. It’s all about the snacks! At open house the school gave students an adorable little canvas bag with their name on it that they are to bring their snacks in. C talks about his little snack bag more than anything else. He’s always so excited to put a snack in it. I’m quite sure I will never have to worry about forgetting his snack.
As you can imagine, given the high amount of anticipation I know I am up against, it is sometimes hard to decide exactly what to put in C’s little snack bag. What snack will live up to his little three year old expectations when he peeks inside his bag? Well I think I’ve finally nailed it! This week I threw together just about all of his favorite snacks and lovingly dubbed it Toddler Trail Mix (largely because it has a better ring to it than Preschooler Trail Mix haha).
Genius! Why didn’t I think of this earlier? C thinks this is so totally cool.
What exactly is in Toddler Trail Mix you ask? In ours you’ll find…
- Bunny grahams/teddy graham type crackers
- Cheddar bunnies (or goldfish if you prefer)
- and 2 varieties of California Raisins (golden and traditional raisins). No snack mix is complete without a little something sweet and coming by their sweetness naturally, all natural, California Raisins were just the thing.
I tossed everything together into a big bowl, mixed it up and then spooned it into toddler sized snack bags so that our snacks are ready to grab at a moments notice. C can’t wait to take his little snack mix to school (in his new snack bag of course).
By the way Toddler trail mix isn’t just a good snack for toddlers. My 10 yr old approves too 😉 What would you put in your toddler’s trail mix?
