Healthy Snacks to Pack for Your Family’s Road Trip

Family on Road Trip | Garland, TX

For many families, summertime is packed with family road trips to visit friends and family and tour new destinations. One road trip staple is a good supply of snacks. While it can be tempting to grab bags of chips and candy, healthy snacks can leave you feeling better once you reach your destination.


Here are some great healthy road trip snack options.


Cheese and crackers


This snack time classic is a great option for the car. Cheese is easy to pack into a cooler and it offers lots of protein to keep you feeling full longer. Try healthier cracker options, like seedy crackers that come with more fiber.


Dried fruit


When the sweet cravings hit, munch on some dried fruit instead of a bag of candy. Dried fruit is non-perishable making it a good choice if you can’t take a cooler. It also comes packed with vitamins and flavors.


Energy bites


If you want to make your own snacks ahead of time, consider making energy bites. These portable snacks are full of fiber, protein, and healthy fats. There are a variety of recipes to choose from, however, we think these Tahini Maple Oat Bites sound particularly delicious.


Popcorn


Pop some popcorn ahead of time or buy some pre-popped bags. Popcorn is a whole-grain snack that is healthier than many people realize. You can sprinkle on your favorite seasonings for added flavor.
