Mar 31 2023
Spring is here! If you're traveling, you need road snacks. Here are some of our best healthy travel snacks for on the go. Pack a little of everything, and you’ll have all your snack cravings covered…

Healthy Travel Snacks: Fresh Fruit & Veggies

If you're road-tripping, take advantage of the situation and pack a small cooler of easy-to-eat fresh snacks. Pro tip: Bring a gallon-size sealable bag to stash any peels or cores, and empty it out when you stop for gas.

Healthy Travel Snacks: Protein Bars & Energy Balls

A stash of satisfying bars is essential! Look for options that are high in protein without being highly caloric (unless you’re looking for a meal replacement). Packs of energy balls are also great, since you can easily have a couple and save the rest for later.

Healthy Travel Snacks: Something Sweet

Keep small pieces of chocolate and candy around. This way, when a craving hits, you’ve got a better option than a whole gas-station candy bar.

Healthy Travel Snacks: Bonus Ideas!

Make your own snack packs: Reusable sealable bags are clutch—you're never NOT going to need snack-sized baggies. Buy a bunch, and fill 'em up before you hit the road.

DIY trail mix: Mix 'n match your favorites: popcorn, cereal, nuts (almonds, shelled pistachios, cashews), dried fruit (cranberries, raisins), freeze-dried fruit, M&Ms… You name it.

Electrolyte drink packets: People often drink less when traveling (to avoid pit stops), and mixes like these can help keep dehydration at bay.

Squeeze pouches: Squeezable snacks with fruit, veggies & more can be good for a quick hit of nutrition.
