    • Hi Mary:

      This is an easy one to grab and go because granola can get high in sugar and calories if you don’t measure it out —–these packets keep the portions under control for easy snacking!



      2 cups popped 94% fat-free kettle corn microwave popcorn
      1 cup granola
      1/2 cup Fiber One Cereal
      2 oz. Cocoa Almonds
      1 oz. (about 1 cup) freeze-dried fruit (like Gerber Graduates Mini Fruits, Funky Monkey Snacks, or the kinds by Just Tomatoes, Etc.!)

      Mix together and separate into 5 baggies. Enjoy!
