I love to encourage my kids to create and imagine during learning and play.  I figured why should snack time be any different.  While on a trip to the store one day I had my oldest pick out his own ingredients for a snack mix of his dreams.  I told him he would be able to make and create his own snack mix from the items he picked out.   I also mentioned that school would be starting soon and snack mix would be a great lunchbox solution.  His little mind went to working and he came home and invented the Lunchbox Snack Mix.  I must say he created the perfect sweet and salty combinations for a snack mix.  Simple and easy to make.  And let’s not forget so yummy too.

I love that buy letting me son create his own snack that he was able to get involved in shopping for his items/ingredients. Choosing great food choice when shopping. Great life lessons can be learned with mom at the store. By encouraging a healthy lifestyle for my family and teaching my kids to shop with me I hope they continue a healthy lifestyle once they are grown.




Horizon® Snack Grahams are made with organic wheat and offer 8g of whole grains per serving.  They also have 10% Calcium.

How to make/what he did:


I did help a little with getting bowls and a bag out but then he took over.  He added his chocolate covered raisins to a gallon ziploc bag.  Next he added pretzel sticks.  Last but not least, he added the Horizon snack grahams.  He gave the bag a little mix.  And then opened the bag up for a taste.  He was very happy about his lunchbox sweet and salty snack mix he created.

Now he has a great snack we can eat at home together.  Better yet, he has a great back to school snack.  He can take this snack to school in a few weeks to continue our healthy routine of nourishing our bodies.  Keeping my kids fueled with wholesome food is important to me.  Once fueled up they can continue to learn and dream their next big creation.
