  1. These were so easy to make! Thank you for all the tips! I made 3 each of the fruit box and the hummus box. Both were delicious and I was so glad to have healthy snacks ready to eat throughout the week!

  2. Such great ideas here! I made the one with trail mix for my son today as a surprise. 🙂 I’m sure he’s going to love it when he sees it! Also, darn you for those peach photos. 😄 I desperately want some peaches now! Only have about 6 months to wait. 😆
