This is such an unbelievable hit at my home daycare! The kids all like to pick out their favorite bits first, then their second, etc. THey all like to talk to each other about what is their favorite and some even trade! It's easy to get carried away and keep adding more and more, but it's best to keep it simple like this or it gets expensive, especially if you add chocolate or yogurt covered bits. Sometimes I will switch raisins for golden raisins or dried cranberries.
