Kid Friendly Road Trip Snacks

13 Kid-Friendly Road Trip Snacks

Spring Break will be here before we know it and our family is looking forward to our next road trip! We will be visiting a few states and may even have a few pop-up side-trips along the way. My mother and I have been planning this trip for the past few months. Our goal was to include things for all the age groups in our family: 2 girls – my kindergartener and 8th grade niece and 2 boys – my 4 grader and 6th grade nephew. Whew! Not including the 3 adults that will be there, as well. It’s definitely going to be an experience.

It never fails – we get in the car and my children are all of a sudden STARVING with all caps and a ton of exclamation marks after it. For Spring Break this year, we are going on a trip with my parents, niece and nephew so I am planning ahead with our kid-friendly road trip snacks to ensure we are all happy and fed.

My goal for this year’s road trips is to be more prepared and plan ahead when it comes to packing so I can focus on the fun and spontaneity of traveling the open highway with my family.
