Snack Ideas for Road Trips with Kids

Sharing is caring!

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!

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.
