Looking for a healthy treat for your toddler on this 4th of July? I love trail mix snacks because they are super easy to put together and very versatile. It is a great way to use up things in your pantry. Am I the only one that finds exact 7 pieces of cereal in a box? Like seriously, eat it or throw it away! Anyway, this red, white and blue toddler trail mix is a cute way to celebrate patriotic holidays with your little one!

Red, White and Blue Toddler Trail Mix
For this red, white and blue toddler trail mix , I used some of our favorite snacks that are always in our pantry. My 4 year old even joined in to help me put it all together. It is a great activity for a younger child to help with because you don’t even need to measure.
Since it is July 4th, a patriotic theme was on my mind. I wanted to select red, white and blue things for this mix that would be appealing to young kids.
Cheerios (Frosted Cheerios would be even more fun!)
Star Shaped Blueberry Puffs (I didn’t have these but they would be a great addition since they are in a fun Star Shape)
Of course use your judgement and don’t feed your babies something that they are not ready for at the stage that they are in. I picked out things that my 8 month old could eat and allowed my 4 year old to eat as she pleased.
Red, White & Blue Toddler Trail Mix Assembly
Trail mix is the best to make because you literally just dump everything together. I used about 1 cup of cereal and about a 1/2 a cup of the other items. To be honest, I didn’t measure. I just grabbed handfuls of things but if you want to measure, that is the ratio that I would use.
My little helper assisting in the process. Check out the cute little photo bomb. He was wanting to help but was satisfied by a few Cheerios instead.
