Beach Themed Snack

Summer is finally here and with it comes kids who never seem to stop snacking. I usually chalk my kids’ increased appetite up to days filled with swimming and playing outside, and I try to keep snacks on hand that are easy and won’t melt.  (Though I suppose the Swedish Fish that I used for this snack mix could melt in extreme temps, so be mindful of that.) This “fish food” snack mix would work great for a pool party, beach trips with kids, or any random day of summer play.

How to Make Fish Food Snack Mix

While we were at the beach, I simply dumped some of each snack into a gallon Ziploc bag.  I gave the bag a little shake to mix it up and then poured the kids’ their snack mix.  I found cute beach-themed snack cups and used those to serve our mix.

The snack mix was a total hit – the kids LOVED it!

You can swap out the ingredients as you choose, based on your family’s preferences and dietary restrictions. I avoided anything that contained chocolate to eliminate the quick-to-melt factor. The next time I make this snack I might switch it up a bit and use popcorn instead of the cereal.
