When you're prepping your car for a summer road trip, aside from making sure your vehicle itself is safe and running well, you want to make sure you are prepared to keep your passengers happy by keeping their bellies full. And when it comes to eating on the open road, there are a few key criteria for the best take-along snacks: tasty, healthy, easily fit into a cooler, won't make a mess, and can be eaten without dishes or utensils! Take a look at our recommendations and share your ideas in the comments section!
Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to Pack
For ultimate simplicity, you can opt for personal sized fruits like apples, bananas, pears, etc. Or throw chunks of pineapple, melon, grapes, or other small fruits into a Ziploc bag and you're ready to go!
The same goes for veggies. Just chop up your favorites for the perfect grab-and-go healthy snack. You could even bring along some hummus for dipping!
- Packaged Snacks
If you're looking for a road trip snack that will stay fresh a little longer, bring along your favorite healthy packaged snack. Think granola bars, crackers, cereal, trail mix, dried fruit, string cheese, etc. As it goes with packaged snacks though, just make sure to take a peek at the nutrition label first so you know what is really in your snack.
For something a little more filling, sandwiches and wraps are super simple to prepare ahead of time and are convenient to grab when you're feeling hungry mid-trip. Keep it simple with nut butter and whole grain bread, or mix it up with a whole grain tortilla roll up!
- Frozen Water Bottles
This idea is genius! Freeze some of your water bottles so they can be used as ice packs, and then as they thaw they can double as a refreshing drink for any thirsty passengers.
