Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up soon! So many people find themselves on the road or in a plane during this busy time of year! We have a lot of family out of town, and one side of the family close by so we alternate holidays and spend some time traveling to see family and some time enjoying family at home.
Travel with little ones can always be interesting. I’ve found with good planning we have been able to have fun successful trips with our little ones. One thing that I always try to make sure I have is plenty of snacks and drinks in the car for everyone. Meals happen when we are stopping for gas, and when we can find a restaurant that everyone will like, so having healthy snacks in bewtween is important.
Travel snacks can often times be unhealthy. It is often quick and easy to grab packaged food, and sometimes this means few nutrients and lots of sugar.
Another issue with travel food with kids under 5 is the mess they can make! A lot of food like crackers, cookies, or granola bars will leave a mess of crumbs all over the car. We try to let our kids be kids, but we also try to keep messes to a minimum.
Slammer Snacks has a great solution to both these travel snack issues. My kids love the flavors, and they are a great snack that both my kids can eat on their own with little mess. Even better, these snacks have 7 grams of protein in each pouch, making it something that will stick with them a little longer. With flavors like Chocolate Banana, Mango, and Grape Pomegranate, your kids will find healthy snacks full of vitamins, that your kids will love.
Enjoy your travels this holiday season! Stay safe, and be prepared with snacks, games, and family fun to pass the time!
