The Best Snacks for Traveling

road trip snacks

Whether you’re traveling by car or plane, it can be hard to find healthy snacks to fuel you for a long trip.  The challenge is even bigger when you’re traveling with kids.

I highly recommend packing a bag of healthy goodies at home so you don’t have to rely on truck stops or airports for nourishment.  Here’s what I packed for our recent (long!) trip to Michigan.

And because no trip would be complete without a few treats, baby puffs for Lucy

and Unreal Peanut Butter Cups for Tyler and myself.

Also in the food bag were grape tomatoes and fresh blueberries, plus golden raisins – our go-to healthy travel snacks.

Another traveling tip: don’t forget to zip your suitcase after packing…or someone may try to unpack before you even get out the door!

    I second your recommendation of those unreal peanut butter cups. The ones I stole from your fridge when I was at your house watering your tomato plants the other day were stellar! 🙂
