I have three boys… that means as soon as we get in the car they inevitably start in with,
I’m hungry! Are we going to eat? How long until we get some food?
I learned very quickly that my boys are bottomless pits and for some reason, car rides make them starving, whiny, babies!!
That means that I learned very quickly to keep a stock of snacks. I prefer to give them things that I make, not because I worry too much about GMO, gluten, red dye number five, or any of the other “bad things” but because it is typically cheaper to make your own. 🙂
I have gathered some of our favorite Snack Ideas for Road Trips with Kids and a few that we are wanting to try. I am sure you and your family will appreciate these yummy recipes!

Snack Ideas for Road Trips with Kids
Check out these easy road trip snack ideas that the kids will love!
Oh my word! My brother's absolutely most favorite dessert is Key Lime Pie. But, it is kind of a pain to make, so I always turn to Mrs. Smith or Mrs. Edwards. LOL! However, I bet he would love these Key Lime Energy Bites from Peas and Carrots! I can't wait to make them and get him to try them.
I could have done this entire post on cookies, but that isn't really the most healthy snack in the world... is it? However, these Red Velvet Cookies from Food Meanderings are made from a secret ingredient that not only makes them red, but makes them healthy!
Oh My WORD! If you could take some Cheese-its and make them even better, you would. Wouldn't you? Yes, it gets better than Cheese-Its! This Cowboy Ranch Cheese-Its Recipe from Consumer Queen does exactly that.
Muffins can produce crumbs, but they still make a great travel snack. You could even make these Apple & Almond Butter Muffins at To Simply Inspire in a mini muffin pan to make them bite sized and easier for little hands to hold!
When you put peanut butter in a recipe, your kids never know it is healthy! These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites from Turning the Clock Back might be better for Mom & Dad, though. Not sure we want our kids full of energy when driving for ours! LOL!

Must Have Road Trip Resources:
The following Amazon affiliate links are a necessity for snacks on your next road trip. 🙂 OK, maybe not necessary, but they will sure feel like it.
These sounds like some great snacks; though we don't allow anything with chocolate in the car. My general rule of thumb is that crumbs are OK but anything that will melt or make the car sticky is not. Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Love to Learn Linky. Pinned.
