Healthy Snacks

Recently, Mrs. MacRae came in and helped everyone define what is a healthy snack. We decided it’s is something small that is made of natural ingredients and whole foods. She even brought us an example. If you missed it I have the recipe listed below. It’s called “Too Cool Trail Mix.” I think I had two just to make sure it was safe for all of the students.











What do you guys think? I mean look at the ingredients. Do you think you’d make this at home after trying it and reflecting on how it was made? Would you change anything, or leave it the same? Here’s a picture of the finished product.









I think it had the right amount of salty taste with sweet flavor. I might add a few chocolate chips. I know Mrs. MacRae might not approve but I’ll make sure I just add a few. How do you guys think this snack compares to Hot Cheetos? Often kids bring them to school. Check out this link to help with your reflection on Flaming Hot Cheetos.











This is a small bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos compared to the snack bags kids have been trying to take to lunch. It’s probably 2-3 servings. If you read the link I posted above you would have noticed that 1 bag can equal as much as 595 calories. That’s as much as a 6 inch Subway sandwich. Do you think this is a snack? Do you think it’s a healthy snack?
