I’ve been traveling this week with my kids so I loaded up the car with all sorts of snacks for our trip. On my past adventures, my stash pile has either been too many sweets (which leads to tummy aches) or too many salty snacks (which leads to extra water and extra potty breaks).
This time I wanted to get the mix just right–sweet, salty, satisfying. Here are three we brought along–and so far, my crew has enjoyed each one!
4 cups multigrain Cheerios
1 cup blueberry-infused cranberries
1 cup cashews
4 cups stick pretzels
1 cup Raisnets
1 cup peanuts
4 cups corn Chex
1 cup dried cherries
3/4 cup pecans
So far our mixes have kept us happy between meals while venturing from one side of Washington D.C. to
the other–seriously, I think we walked about 10.5 miles today. (Hubby is checking the map right now to make sure I’m not exaggerating. Wow–2.3 miles one way just between the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Jefferson Memorial and that was our last walk. No wonder my feet hurt.)
These mixes work well for vacation, hiking–and especially for your kiddos to take with them to sports practices and games. For more tips on getting kids sports ready (and that’s just what will be going on once we’re back from our vacation) check out this round up of Spring Safety Tips at Motherboard.
Now it’s your turn–what are some of your favorite pick-me-up mixes for your kids?
