School has started or will be starting for many children, and with that comes back routine, scheduling, and of course preparing lunch and healthy snacks for them. I have been making this recipe for over 15 years for my son, and it is time to revisit an older post I've done for this recipe. It has become incredibly popular over the years with all his teammates in track and field. Packed with nutrition, this makes the ultimate snack for those high energy kids.
