Wow! 1 cup= 333 calories I wouldn't give this to my kids if they were little too many calories. All that saturated fat on the boxed crackers and cashew nuts I can imagine the caloric intake on those. Too much calories

We love Goldfish crackers-a favorite snack in our home! We eat lots of nuts too, almonds, walnuts,cashews, peanuts and Brazil nuts-good Omega 3 fatty acids help your brain work correctly. Just watch your serving sizes, this recipe came with a 1 cup serving size b/c it is mixed with other foods, but a snack of only nuts should be no more than a 1/4 cup per serving.

You can buy organic cheese crackers, I think they come in Sesame Street shapes for the little ones that would be a bit healthier alternate, but we do like Goldfish ourselves, and they are made with whole grain now.

As with all recipes feel free to modify as desired to your family's own tastes.
