We have a road trip coming up with the little family and I’ve been racking my brain as to what to pack when it comes to snacks. Because I hate stopping at fast food, or overpaying for snacks at the gas station, I’m planning on packing most of what we need so that we have it with us on the way.
So after I figured that much out, I then got into researching some good snack ideas for adults and kids alike. I want things that don’t necessary have to be refrigerated and a bonus if they’re easy to eat on-the-go. Here’s what I uncovered that I’m planning on bringing with us!
Also, I came across a few more articles on traveling with littles that are worth checking out, they provided some great information for different topics that go along with my post today! They include:
