Back-to-School is looming ever closer. One of the most daunting tasks we face when preparing to get back into the hustle and bustle of a school day: snacks in our child’s lunches. Making sure kids are enjoying what they are eating is the goal we strive to achieve. After a lot of trial and error, I came up with this Back-to-School Trail Mix that is easy to make. It is a snack my kids enjoy when crunching into a snack at school!

I HAD to add Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks to this recipe because my kids are huge fans of these mini bits of delight. They are bright, colourful and are easy to eat on their own or as a fun addition to other snacks. I also love popping a pack into my bag. They are great to munch on while on-the-go!

There are a lot of fruit snacks that ignore fruit. At Welch’s, they have made a point to put fruit front and center. Did you know that their Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks are not only made with real fruit

This makes us smile every time we savour these delightful morsels.

What is fabulous about this Back-to-School Trail Mixare the ingredients. I love to customize it so our children do not get bored with the flavour.

Another great feature of this snack is how easy it is to put together. It only takes a few minutes to make.

 

 

For this trail mix recipe I threw together the following ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup Pretzels
  • 1 Cup Hulled Pumpkin Seeds
  • 2 Cups Popcorn
  • 1 Cup Coconut Shavings
  • 1 Cup Hulled Sunflower Seeds
  • 6 Packs Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks (3 Strawberry flavour and 3 Blueberry flavour)

Once the ingredients are in a bowl, all you have to do is mix them together and put them into a container for your child’s lunch. You can keep the remainder in a jar to enjoy any time you want!

What I really love about this snack is the different textures I experience with every bite. My kids adore how they get a different flavour combination with every handful they take!

    I always like chocolate almonds or chocolate chips in mine.. or smarties. I tried the new welches yogurt by the way, quite chewy and nice.
