Fruit and Nut Balls: an easy healthy snack recipe

My kids are big snackers and I’m always working hard to make sure that my house is full of healthy snack choices. We snack a lot on granola bars, fresh fruit and yogurt. But the best snacks are the ones we make ourselves, especially when they’re easy and the kids can help. Trina from O’Boy! Organic Blog shared her Fruit and Nut Balls recipe and I can’t wait to make it.
