Snacks that Travel

Sorry, but this is going to be my shortest post ever. We are literally packing up the car and heading out for the weekend as soon as I finish writing this.

With a five hour car ride ahead of us and two continuously snacking five-year-olds in tow, I thought I would run through our list of munchies for the ride. Rather than picking up a bunch of prepackaged snack foods which on the surface may seem more convenient, I have chosen some quick and easy fresh (whole) foods.

Carrot sticks
Sliced Red Pepper
Cheese and crackers
We also packed some granola bars and graham crackers as a treat.

I have filled reusable bottles with water for each of us. As far as I am concerned carbonated, sugary and caffenated drinks only make a car ride more uncomfortable and who needs all the calories and artificial stuff anyway!

So here we go, the car is packed and we are ready for some fun. Have a great weekend!
