Annie has been swimming a lot recently and her appetite has really grown. Not surprisingly with all the extra running around I’m doing to make sure she gets to the pool each day, there has been a serious reduction in the amount of time I’ve got for preparing food.
One healthy filling snack I’ve been seeing a lot of online is trail mix, but nuts seem to be a feature of most recipes. So last weekend Annie and I had a go at making our own trail mix.
1 bag of sultanas
1 bag of raisins
1 bag of sunflower seeds
1 bag of pumpkin seeds
1 bag of white chocolate chips
1 cup of All Bran
We went shopping at ALDI and just purchased their standard bags of the first four items.
Empty all the bags into a large container. Put lid on container and shake well. Then each day just scoop out what you need into a small lunch container.
The only thing I would add to this is make sure the kids have lots of water to drink, which is pretty essential for active kids anyway.
What are your quick and easy snack suggestions for hungry kids?
