Are you headed for a long road trip with the kids this holiday season? While many truck stops, gas stations and fast food places are offering healthier fare, packing your own healthy snacks is a great way to save money and avoid temptation.
Here’s a list of a few healthy snacks my family and I like to take on road trips:
Hard boiled eggs – peel them ahead of time
Easy to eat fruit like grapes, bananas, oranges, and apples
Dried fruit – buy the natural kind without the added sugar
Cheese – string cheese sticks, precut chunks, or Babybel low fat cheeses are all great choices
Healthy crackers and snack bars
Sports bottles to fill up with water during pit stops
Sandwiches or sandwich fixings – lean meats, bread, mustard, cheese slices, etc.
Sugar free gum
100% juice boxes
Also, don’t forget a roll of paper towels, maybe a small knife for cutting up cheese or putting mustard on sandwiches, a few baggies, and a trash bag or two.
Will you be traveling by car this holiday season?
