Snack Girl is about to get on a plane and travel to a far away place. But, before I get there, I am going to have to eat something.
Does anyone else remember when they used to feed you on planes? Man, that seems like the dark ages. Remember when we could bring huge bottles of shampoo in our carry-on and walk through security with our shoes ON?
Yes, dear readers, I am feeling old today.
If you are traveling by plane or by car, you need to think ahead because the food in airports or on the road is TERRIBLE. Huge muffins, bagels, and cookies tempt you and they are so EXPENSIVE.
What to do? Plan ahead. I always say I am going to plan ahead and then, your fearless leader Snack Girl, rushes around and forgets her snack. How sad is that?
THIS time it is going to be different because I am making a list to remind me of all the great choices for traveling. Keep in mind that you can bring fresh fruit and sandwiches through security at the airport - and fresh food is the healthiest snack food.
This list contains some of the healthy packaged snacks that are easy to grab and shove into your bag - and a couple of recipes for the person who wants to REALLY plan ahead.
For children, the best travel snacks are the ones they pack themselves. Check out my interview on Jet With Kids to get ideas about how to keep children out of the airplane junk.
Anya over at Jet With Kids has a bunch of other great ideas for traveling without tantrums.
What do you take with you on trips? Please share.
