(Local) School Snacks

Posted by Local Llano on September 27, 2016

Let’s face it, snacks are important. To a kid, snacks are an irreplaceable delicacy. Unfortunately, a lot of the snack foods available today are packed with preservatives and lacking in basic nutrition.

But don’t fret! We have some ideas for whipping up healthy, local (and not to mention delectable) snacks to send—or eat—with your kids!

Trail Mix

This might be the most obvious of homemade snacks, but trust us—you can spice up any trail mix with a little dip! Grab some local yogurt and give your local nuts a dip to give your trail mix a bang of flavor.

Fruit & Veggie Chips

One of our favorites here at Local Llano. Dried and baked fruit or vegetable chips! They’re easy as pie and just as delicious. We found this great recipe for apple chips—easily made with a few of your favorite local apples.
