Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads...

These kids are growing fast and always, always hungry. I can't keep up. I need to pack a snack for school, snacks for the car, snacks on the weekends. I try to change things up so they don't get bored. I made up this little fishy snack mix and it was a big hit!

When I was a kid I'd go fishing with my Grandpa- he always used marshmallows and those seemed to be the most effective bait. The strawberry marshmallows reminded me of that, then I added pretzel sticks for 'rods' to catch the cinnamon graham goldfish cookies. A stretch, I know - but I am trying to make food more interesting, and you know what? It totaly worked. The kids were all over this snack.

On the weekend I added a little yogurt dipping pond for the fishies and they were good to go. Snacktime success!

fish heads, fish heads, eat them up, yum!

I like to make my own "trail mix" with goldfish, craisins, marshmallows, nuts... I like the salty and sweet together.
