Healthy snacks for holiday roadtrips #kiaholidays

kia-happy-holidaysAre 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
  • Beef jerky
  • 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.
  • Dark chocolate
  • 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?
