Tasty Trail Mix by Libby from Munch

Get Ahead - Trail Mix

This is so easy that I can hardly call it a recipe, but it’s very handy to have a jar of this in the cupboard ready for lunchboxes, snacks and car journeys. A little pot of trail mix is an exciting and nourishing alternative to a bag of crisps or popcorn. The key is to include a variety of foods to increase the range of nutrients your children are getting whilst still including some of their favourites.

Choose any items from this list, put in an airtight jar or box and mix together. Keep sealed in your cupboard for freshness.

  • raisins
  • pumpkin seeds
  • coconut flakes
  • dark choc chips
  • dried cranberries
  • banana chips
  • cacao nibs
  • dried apricots
  • sunflower seeds
  • roasted giant corn
  • dried apple rings
  • Japanese rice snacks
  • veg crisps
  • goji berries
  • popcorn
  • dried mango
  • granola chunks
  • dried blueberries

A huge thank you to Libby from Munch for suggesting so many treats to put in our tasty trail mix. I for one am going to get stocked up on lots of these goodies and let the children choose their favourites for their lunchboxes each day!
