Kid Friendly Trail Mix

We are officially living in UTAH! We survived the 20 hour drive from Missouri to Utah and we are so happy to be in the Beehive State! When I was little and I traveled I would eat so much junk food I would always get so sick. Since marrying my husband, we try to eat a little bit healthier for our long car rides so we don’t feel sick. My only problem is getting my kids to eat healthier while we drive, so I have been on the look out for something they would like. I found this recipe and knew it was worth a try. I placed the trail mix in two “special containers” for our trip and my girls LOVED it!
