MyPlate2Yours Trail Mix



Ingredients in this MyPlate2Yours Trail Mix has Life cereal, popcorn, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, and dark chocolate chips.

I enjoy teaching nutrition to the freshman health students at our local high school. It is great to interact with these students because they have entered a time in their lives when they make many of their own food choices. This is new for many of them and they are very receptive to the help I can provide. We talk about nutrition requirements for teens.

Here is a snack I always bring to class. When combined with a glass of milk, this snack will provide all the food groups in MyPlate . The ingredients in this recipe are listed in order of greatest proportion to least. Quantities are up to you. Have fun!
