Each will receive an individual dish of caesar pasta salad and fruit that I've packed in plastic containers purchased at Target. Today it is all about grab and go as they don't have much time to fuss with fixing their plates. And, for the treat...I made one of our girls favorites, Team Mix. It is a healthy treat that is super easy to fix and customize for your team or for the season.
Popcorn-any kind you like (natural, butter, kettle corn)
Pretzels-the tiny twists work best
Cereal-we usually use frosted Cheerios (we used to use frosted Chex, but can't find them anymore) again, pick one they like.
Candy-(okay, the unhealthy part...but not a lot goes in it) we usually use candy corn this time of year, or M&Ms in their school colors. We opted for candy corn this go round as our daughter can't eat chocolate and two of her teammates don't like it (who doesn't like chocolate???).
Place each item in a separate bowl, then take a measuring cup or scoop if you have one, and fill Ziploc sandwich bags with the ingredients-mostly popcorn, 6-8 pretzels, approx. 1/4 cup cereal, and a few pieces of candy.
We then placed the Ziploc bags inside some blue ones (school color), and attached the "Team Mix" on the front.
Popcorn-Get Pumped Up!
Cereal (Cheerios)-Cheer Each Other On!
Candy Corn-You are all a bit corny!
Pretzels-Your team has your back when in a bind!
You could customize the sayings to go with the ingredients you choose.
The girls love this mix! A little sweet, a little salty. And, it is easy to throw in their backpacks if they don't get a chance to finish it before leaving.
