Going on a road trip can be a great adventure, but ensuring you eat healthy while on the go can be challenging. So, when planning a road trip with kids, it's important to consider how to keep everyone eating healthy while keeping things fun!Here are some tips to help make sure everyone has a balanced diet while on the go:
Pack a cooler with easy-to-grab snacks like fresh fruits, vegetables, yogurt, and nuts. Keep apples, oranges, carrots, and celery on hand for quick, healthy snacking. Storing these snacks in a multi-compartment bento box is an easy way to have some variety. We love these stainless steel options from PlanetBox.
Buy some healthy snacks before you hit the road. Try to look for foods made with clean ingredients and minimal added sugar. Also, read the nutrition labels to get an idea of the fat, sodium, and other nutrient content when you can opt for items that are naturally lower in calories or fat, such as fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. Finally, avoid processed convenience foods high in trans fats and artificial ingredients.
