When it’s time to hit the road, packing snacks can be daunting. How can you minimize mess and still keep your toddler full? Packing healthy snacks is a great way to limit hunger-related stops while keeping your little ones happy.
Puffs and a fruit (we usually do banana as it comes in its own ‘container’!)
Oranges, tangerines and clementines also travel well and come naturally sliced!
Puffs and a cheese stick
Cheese sticks are portable and packed with protein. They’re fun to play with, and little ones can practice their fine motor skills.
Sliced carrot or cucumber + hummus
Hummus is high in fiber and packed with plant-based protein, making it a filling snack. It also contains a variety of vitamins and minerals.
Homemade trail mix- handful of chopped walnuts (or your nut of choice!), dried cherries, pepitas, chocolate chips
Trail mix is an easy win for on-the-go because it’s so customizable! You can substitute your favorite nuts, dried fruits and other filling extras. Make a bag of ‘base’ mix for each kid so they can add their own spin.
Apple + sunbutter "sandwiches" (apple slices with sun butter in the middle)
These toddler-sized sandwiches are the perfect pair of protein and fiber that will keep your little one feeling full. Squeeze a little lemon juice on the apples to keep them from turning brown.
