Julie- you should contact the larger- packaged cereal co. (malt-o-meal comes to mind) & see if they would consider offering in bulk- maybe even get a list of people who would be interested in this as an option so they can see the viability!
i find cinnamon yogurt covered only at Sunflower Farmer's Market. anyone know how to make 'yogurt powder' they use to make these? i dont recall ever seeing *partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil on the ingredient list for the ones i buy. ick * i gave up on snacks like cheez-its for this reason and the following long ago.
i avoid art. colors so its those or reg. yogurt covered...there are 'blueberry' using art. colors.
my kids get one before bed, as a treat. most of the bulk treats i find are either
art. colored or choco. (caffeine)
we do buy walnuts, almonds, cashews, pecans for snacking thru-out the day. i used to have a almond tree in my yard. i need a pecan tree to replace it;)
granola is ok, but messy with a 2 yo...also it has very tropical ingredients like coconut, choco, and other ingredients that all come to me from a very far distance, using more fuel.
yes, the fruit fig bars are good too. i bought some peach at the peach festival here in AZ. figs grow in my backyard, so i can guess the figs might be local.
my DS loves raisins. my DD doesnt.
i try not to buy too much dried fruit unless we are doing a trip or day at the zoo.
they lack have vit c and potassium that fresh fruit offers, basically only iron.
