The holiday season is in full swing and that means many families are planning their holiday travels. Whether that means a three hour drive to Grandma’s, a two hour plane ride, or even a cross-country journey, one thing with kids is for certain: snacks are a must.

I feel like our family has the car snacking options down. We have our go-to items and also other options for when the kiddos (and maybe Mom) start to get bored with the variety. I’ve put together a quick list of our tried and true favorites which I hope your family can enjoy just as much as ours. Not traveling anytime soon? These are also amazing for picnics, running errands, dance recital breaks, doctors offices, field trips, and a number of other chaotic moments where a hungry little could mean disaster.
Our Snacking List
- Frozen grapes
- String cheese
- Boiled eggs (mostly for Mom & Dad)
- Fruit leathers (link for strawberry ones here)
- Nuts or seeds
- Apple slices
- Frozen yogurt tubes
- Granola bars (these are my favorite)
- Cheese crackers (our kids devour Ritz Bits!)
- Muffins (especially mini muffins such as these blueberry ones)
- Homemade “Uncrustables”
