In a strong storage bag such as a 1 gallon freezer bag, let children toss in some of their favorite dried fruits, nuts, and bite size cereal or crackers. As a special treat let them toss in some yogurt drops, yogurt covered fruit or chocolate covered fruit. Seal the bag. If you have several children, let them gently toss the bag to each other to mix the ingredients. Or, you can engage in a quick game of toss with your child. Package the mix in small bags for your child to enjoy as a healthy snack.

Quick Breakfast tip: Add finely chopped dried fruit to prepackaged bran muffin mix for a quick breakfast item.
