Toddler Valentine Snack Mix! ♥

I'm sure I'm not the only one seeing all these yummy Valentine's mixes on pinterest. Coated in powdered sugar, drizzled in chocolate, mixed with yummy m&ms, lovely right?! Yesss! But, I couldn't find many kid friendly options out there, so I decided to put together a cute little mix suitable for toddlers! And, I won't lie, I plan on eating some too! :)


There's still some things in here that my toddlers don't normally get, but as this is meant to be a 'treat', I think it's okay!

Toddler Valentine Snack Mix

Here's what we used:
-Cheerios (frosted! Mommy is getting crazy over here!)
-Yogurt covered raisins
-HappyBaby strawberry yogurt melts (you can find these with the baby food in various brands)
-Strawberry Frosted Shredded Wheat (various brands make these!)

the strawberry cereal has 11g of sugar, which is quite a bit more than my girls cereal normally has, but I went ahead and 'sprinkled' a few on as a treat for them! Other than that, I did about a cup of cheerios, 1/4 cup of both the yogurt covered raisins & yogurt melts. & Make sure to check the sugars/ingredients on the yogurt covered raisins, some of these were crazy, I'd recommend checking out a health food store!

You could also add some dried cranberries or strawberries
Dried Cranberries
animal crackers, etc!
Animal Crackers

have fun mixing up your own! ♥

P.S. this mix also looks ADORABLE layered in a mason jar, I'll probably post some pics later ♥

    1. Hi Julie! I tried to incorporate things that people with toddlers might already have on hand, so it makes me happy that it will be easy for you to whip up! Hope your little one enjoys it! :)
