The trick to get kids to eat trail mix—add just a little bit of the sweet stuff to the nutritious stuff so it tastes like a treat! Pumpkin seeds are loaded with magnesium and zinc, and the cranberries are chock-full of vitamin C and fiber.
Preheat oven to 375°.
Place pumpkinseed kernels and almonds on a jelly-roll pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with sugar and salt; toss to coat.
Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Let cool on pan 30 minutes.
Transfer pumpkinseed mixture to a large bowl; add cereal and remaining ingredients, tossing well.
Kids Can Help: Kids can measure all the ingredients, pour them into the bowl, and toss. Then they can measure individual portions into snack containers so they're ready to go for the week.

Excellent snack. I needed to lighten up a bit on the salt and olive oil, though overall a fantastic way to get through the mid-day.
