Popcorn Party Mix

EAT, snacks By October 23, 2010 Tags: , No Comments

This is a perfect party snack, and with Hallowe’en around the corner, we like the health kick and sticky sweetness.  As with any small pieces, though, make sure your children are chewing and swallowing properly to avoid choking.  Other than that, dig in! (and have some baby wipes nearby).
