10 No Cook Snack Mix Recipes for Kids

Snack mixes are loved by all kids and most adults as well. They can be a very healthy snack or you can choose to add a few things into the mix that aren’t as healthy – it all depends on the ingredients you pick. But I remember my mom saying when she gave us the standard M&M, raisins and peanuts snack mix, that at least we were getting some raisins into our system. And we were okay with that as long as there was chocolate. Any time you would normally serve a snack is a good time for snack mix. This includes afterschool, midmorning snacks for toddlers, before bed snacks for the whole family, something to munch on when your kids friends are over for a visit, as an added snack to a party and any time your kids cry “I’m hungry!” The 10 recipes below are no cook snack mixes. Start with a very large bowl or zip bag to mix up the ingredients, then place the mix into smaller baggies to serve the children. You can also keep the snack mix in a large sealed container or zip baggie. For parties, serve in clear plastic cups or in cupcake wrappers.

GORP Good ole raisins and peanuts! Can also include chocolate, cereals, granola. Gorp is made a camp with youth. The leaders will bring the raisins and peanuts and add to them what ever dry food is left over. This is still my very favorite kind. You never know what you’re going to get, but it always turns out great.
