Lunch Box Idea: (Nut-Free) Trail Mix

I have my lunch box staples: stuff I know the kids like. I also like to mix things up sometimes and try new things I can (hopefully) add to my lunch box food repertoire.  I found another one winner with my kids: a lunch box friendly (and nut free) trail mix.  

Just three things in it:

  • Pretzels, Popcorn & Sultanas

It’s a nice sweet/salty snack. Not amazingly nutritious but neither is it really nasty either.

I found this helpful article about building trail mixes with many different combination ideas (some with nuts, some with out).

  • Pretzels, Popcorn & Cheerios
  • Pretzels, Popcorn & Craisins
  • Shredded Wheat Cereal, Sunflower Seeds & Goji Berries
  • Brand flakes, Oats & Dried Apricot (cut up)

Sometimes I do only popcorn, or pretzels, or sultanas and sometimes all together.  It all counts as lunch box options. Variety!!
