After School Snack Ideas: Lucas’ Favorite Trail Mix Recipe

Disclosure 1AfterSchool-1
One of the main things we focus on after school is reading. We encourage Lucas to pick out his own books. Books that really appeal to him. Sometimes those books are chapter books, sometimes he chooses comic books, or sometimes he will even choose Minecraft Tutorial Books. Honestly, it doesn’t matter to me as long as he is reading and more importantly – as long as he is developing the love for reading. The love for books. Because that is truly a gift. While he reads, it’s nice to have a crunchy snack that he can nibble on and trail mix is perfect. Lucas’ favorite combination is a little bit salty and a little bit sweet, but the great thing about this is that you can add whatever your child loves. What I personally love about trail mix is that in minutes, I can make a huge batch. Then, I can portion into small zip-top bags and now we have quick snacks that Lucas can grab on the way to baseball practice, while he is reading or doing homework, etc.

  1. That’s easy-peasy! Thanks for sharing.

  2. My daughter loves snacks like this after preschool. My son hates peanuts so I usually have to make 2 separate batches one for him and one for her. But I love how easy it is and it gives them a little bit of sweets without overwhelming them.
