It's that time again...time for the kids to go back to school! I don't know about you, but for me the summer flew by. I mean REALLY flew by! It seems like just yesterday summer started, and here we are at the beginning of a new school year. This year is a tough one for me. My youngest started his senior year of high school, and my oldest will be moving into his first apartment and starting his junior year in college. Where are my babies??? That's what I want to know!

Well regardless of how old my kiddos are getting, it's still very important for me to feed them nutritious meals and snacks. They are still growing boys you know! My high schooler still packs a lunch most days and I love to include a fun treat or sweet snack for him to enjoy at the end of his meal. I've been a massive fan of SkinnyPop Popcorn for quite some time {and I can wolf down a bag in no time at all!}, so I created a fun snack mix for him to take to school. Let's be real though, it's really for the whole family to enjoy!
