Little Bites Snack Mix


  • Makes16 to 16 servings

You control the sodium with this mix. Be sure to use garlic and onion powder, not garlic or onion salt, which contain you-know-what. Soy nuts make this snack schoolyard- and daycare-friendly where no-nut policies are in place.


  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 cups wheat square cereal, (a.k.a. Shreddies)

  • 2 cups toasted oat cereal, (a.k.a. Cheerios)

  • 2 cups low-sodium pretzels, (such as Snyder's of Hanover)

  • 1 cup Goldfish, (Pepperidge Farm)

  • 1 cup unsalted peanuts, or unsalted soy nuts


  • Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C).

  • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and onion powder, paprika and salt.

  • In a large roasting pan, combine wheat square cereal, toasted oat cereal, pretzels, Goldfish and peanuts or soy nuts. Drizzle with oil mixture and mix well. Bake for 1 hour, turning contents every 15 minutes to prevent heavy browning.
