Eating Smart on Summer Road Trips!

Road trips to the family cabin or to go and see Nanny and Poppy around the bay are summer traditions for many families in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Snacking on the run can always be a challenge when looking for healthy options.  When preparing ahead you can be sure to avoid that common hungry walk through the candy and chip aisle in the gas station and have your healthy treats packed in the car to keep those bellies full!

Here are some great snacks ideas to pack up in your cooler for the long drive out the highway:

  • Carrots sticks
  • Cheerios
  • Celery with peanut butter and raisins
  • Cheese stings (icepacks needed)
  • Yogurt tubes  (icepacks needed)
  • Apple / banana / blueberry / grapes
  • Plain or seeded bread sticks
  • Granola Trail Mix
