The Perfect Road Trip Snacks For Toddlers

Packing Healthy Snacks For Toddlers Keeps Them Happy When The Hunger Monster Strikes

We all know that toddlers can be the most complicated little human beings on earth.

I know I have one! As parents, we always run into the problem of feeding our kids they can either be too picky, or they do not want to eat period. With this problem knowing what road trip snacks to pack is super important.

If we get clever enough, we can surpass the whole fighting over what foods your toddler will or will not eat. Especially when you have had a long day from work and, you pick up your toddler from daycare. Having that extra snack before you can get dinner ready can make or break a tantrum.

How To Pack For Road Trip Snacks

If you are going on a road trip I always like to keep a small insulated lunchbox with little ice packs, so that I can pack cheese or fruits.

If you have more than one child pack extra that way the car line goes by quicker and, you won’t run into the problem of them fighting over one not getting a snack. You will want to do this for road trips being in the car for more than hour for toddlers can be overwhelming as it is.
