Notes

Serve this kiddie mix for a party, school or after sport snack but... ask first, peanut allergies are on the increase and pose such a serious risk to sufferers that many schools have banned anything containing nuts.

Substitute pistachios with your preferred nuts: dry-roasted peanuts, pecans, cashews, almonds, walnuts, or even pine kernels, will be also delicious.

Equally a variety of dried fruits other than raisins.
