25 healthy snack ideas for holiday road trips from goodnessknows snack squares

Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner and for many of us, that means road trips! And with so many hours in the car, the last thing are kids need is to get hyped up on sugar (save that for Grandma’s house, right?)

goodWe’re partnering with goodnessknows snack squares to bring you smart, good-for-you snacking ideas. To kick-off our recommendations, be sure to bring their snack squares along for the ride in these delicious flavors: cranberry, almond, dark chocolate; apple, almond & peanut, dark chocolate; peach & cherry, almond, dark chocolate. With just 100 milligrams of naturally-occurring cocoa flavanols per serving, they’re not only filling but oh-so tasty.

In addition to goodnessknows snack squares, here are some other ideas for healthy road trip snacking.

  1. Pumpkin or sunflower seeds, pistashio, cashews, almonds
  2. Whole Grain Crackers (i.e.  Triscuits, Multi-Seed, Whole-Wheat Matzos, Whole-Grain Rye Crackers that ou can top with peanut butter, cheese, hummus or cream cheese).
  3. Trail mix ingredients: 1/4 cup each: whole-grain cereal, raisins or dried cranberries, and 2 tablespoons each: sunflower seeds or chopped nuts.
  4. Strawberry-yogurt bark made with Greek yogurt.

  6. Cheese (cubes or sticks…with or without crackers)
