 Ingredients:

  • 2 cups toasted oat cereal
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup small chocolate candies (such as M&M’s®)

Directions: Remember to Wash Your Hands!

1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir gently.
2. Serve in paper cups or small bags.


Helpful Hints:

Individual bowls of ingredients can be set up, and children can take one spoonful of the ones they want to eat in their cup. They may go through the line again after everyone has been through once.

Safety Tip:

Don’t give whole peanuts or raisins to children under age 3 or children at risk for choking. Use a variety of cereal in the mix instead.
