Kid-Friendly Trail Mix

Summertime for our family means going on mini-adventures, playing outside as much as possible, and visiting family and friends both near and far.  Last week we had a play date with some neighbors and wanted to bring a kid-friendly snack along.  Our usual go-to is puppy chow, but with it being warm outside I thought it'd be best to switch it up so we wouldn't have one giant chocolaty mess.  I decided to make this salty and sweet Kid-Friendly Trail Mix.

Kid-Friendly Trail Mix Recipe - perfect for your next summertime playdate

Kid-Friendly Trail Mix

4 cups Puffcorn, original
2 cups Bugles, original
2 cups Teddy Grahams, chocolate chip
1 cup Ritz Bits, cheese cracker sandwiches
1 cup Goldfish, cheddar
1 cup M&M's, plain

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to evenly distribute.

For a fun red, white and blue snack this 4th of July, try Patriotic Custom M&M'S in the Trail Mix!

Kid-Friendly Trail Mix - a sweet and salty summertime snack for the family
This is a fun, summer snack for kids, and those that are kids at heart.  In fact our family has enjoyed this Kid-Friendly Trail Mix so much in the last week we are on our second batch!  Our 4 year old son LP loves the Teddy Grahams in the Trail Mix, where our 2 year old daughter MP's favorite is the Puffcorn.  I personally love the Bugles and My Farmer enjoys the Ritz Bitz.  And you can't go wrong with Goldfish and M&Ms, right?

What would be your favorite part of this Kid-Friendly Trail Mix?  Remember to Comment for a Cause!

And a big thank you to my Facebook Fans for helping me think through summer kid snacks ideas and for helping me decide what to post this week!
