Tips For When You Travel With Kids

Easy Travel Food for Kids

Snacking is one way to keep kids occupied on a road trip. Here is a list of easy to pack items travel foods for kids.

  • Individual applesauce and fruit cups (don’t forget plastic spoons). Not the best for eating in the car but handy for fussy eaters who don’t like anything on the menu.
  • Granola bars
  • Yogurt – if packing a cooler
  • F&V – bananas, apples, celery sticks, carrot sticks
  • Raisins and dried fruits
  • Dry crackers – small snack pack size or fill individual snack sized baggies.
  • Water bottles – keep a permanent marker handy to label bottles.
  • Pop-tarts
  • Cereal boxes or snack sized baggies with your child’s morning favorite. This comes in handy when they don’t like anything on the menu.
  • Juice boxes and bags
  • Jar of peanut butter and loaf of bread (don’t forget a plastic knife.)
  • Small packets of ketchup. Believe it or not, some restaurants don’t have ketchup, and we know how our little ones love to douse everything in it.
