Whether you're driving the kids to Grandma's house, loading up the Jeep for a weekend in the woods or making your first summer trek across country, it's important to pack the right snacks.
If you plan to be on the road for more than an hour, you'll want to at least pack a few tasty treats and something good to drink while you cruise to your destination.
Like a healthy meal, planning good-for-you snacks really isn't that difficult to do. Just follow these simple tips and you'll be well-stocked for wherever the road may take you!
1. Fruits & Veggies
These are probably the easiest to pack and some of the most common snack foods you would have in your cupboards and fridge at home.
Dried fruits can be mixed in with granola for a tasty trail mix, or eaten on their own for a great kick of sugary sweetness without the crash after. Although fresh berries are delicious, they can get kind of messy if you're traveling with little ones.
If you're not a fan of fruits, but still want to get some benefits, try bottled smoothies or squeezable apple sauce.
Some tried and true travel treats:
- Baby Carrots
- Celery Sticks
- Bell Pepper Strips
- Snap Peas
- Dried Bananas, Apricots, Kiwis
