Kids Favorite Trail Mix Party Recipe

Trail Mix is a fun and healthy snack at home, in school, when travelling or for kiddie parties. I love them because of the combined saltiness and sweetness of nuts, cereals, fruits and chocolate in one treat. It also provides more nutrients than other snacks like cookies and chips. And once you start, you just can’t stop munching on them.
