Trail Mix That’s School-Safe & Nut-Free

July 25, 2019

This trail mix has kid-pleasing ingredients that are safe for school, daycare, and activities that do not allow peanuts or tree nuts.

It is a well-balanced snack, offering a healthy dose of protein and complex carbs—the kind that supply significant energy and fiber—plus some filling fats.

With flavors and textures kids will love (including their new favorite, Baobites) it is sure to be a hit.

It is also made with moms in mind: rich in electrolyte minerals and antioxidants, contains substantial amounts of vitamins A and C as well as iron and zinc, and free from melty, messy add-ins like chocolate. 

In other words, it’s a powerhouse of nutrition and fuel for their little bodies.
