Healthy kids road trip snacks

Seeing as many of you will be hitting the road this holiday season and requested for easy healthy kids road trip snacks, I thought I’d share some road trip snacks packing ideas with you!

These snacks are perfect for those that are like me that want store bought given the limited time I have due to work and life in general. I usually make homemade but these are just as good and a parent sometimes just needs a break from the kitchen to focus on the packing for the trip…

If you’re traveling long stretches, consider your snacks as meal replacements and choose wisely. These snacks are perfect for a drive that is over 10 hours and under 2 hours.

I hope this list gives you ease of execution (no long waits at the garage shop) and guilt free thoughts for your next road trip. I included a balance of healthy, sweet and savory snacks that will please the  family (I know these are kids snacks but I must admit that I am also addicted to them)!

We were lucky enough to have been sent a selection of the tasty, healthy Kiddylicious snacks. The package entails a combination of sweet and savoury snacks which Sweet M&M loves. I could not stop snacking on the coconut ones and my toddler loves the cheese straws. They were devoured even before I could get a decent picture of her enjoying them.
