3 Healthy Snacks That Are Perfect for a Long Journey

Long journeys can be a challenge with little ones. Whether you’re in a car or traveling by train, having to sit still and wait for the journey to end is a real test of children’s patience. Entertainment and snacks can really help, but sometimes certain snacks are not the best to travel with. Here are some ideas for healthy snacks that work well for a journey. 

Dried Fruit and Nut Mix

Nuts are a great choice for a snack as they are high in protein and fat so keep you feeling fuller longer and contain loads of vitamins and nutrients. Dried fruit adds even more vitamins and brings a lovely sweetness that pairs well with the nuts, so kids will be more likely to enjoy them. They also travel well, either in their packaging or in a small container. 

Cheese and Crackers

Cheese is another great source of healthy fat and protein, as well as calcium and other minerals. You can simply slice up some cheese and place it between crackers which can then be wrapped in foil or put into a container to make them perfect to transport on your trip. 

Yogurt Dipped Blueberries

These are a great choice for a snack as the blueberries offer plenty of healthy fruit vitamins and the yogurt adds protein and calcium. They also taste amazing so will be popular with the kids. You just need a bit of time to prepare them so they can be popped into the freezer to make them perfect for bringing in a container.
