7 Healthy Travel Snacks

Let’s talk about snack ideas that are helpful on vacation and at home. To make things more interesting, I am focusing on our travel snack habits.  I recently went on vacation for a month with my husband and 3 kids.  The grocery stores had a variety of foods, but most of the packaged foods were not familiar to us.  Check out the travel snacks we made on the other side of the world.

1. Apple Slices and Peanut Butter

travel snacks


  • Organic Apple, sliced
  • Organic Peanut Butter (Kirkland’s Organic from Costco is our favorite!)

2. Hummus Tray



  • Hummus
  • Red peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Carrots
  • Snap peas
  • Side of salt and pepper pistachios

3. Yogurt Parfait

travel snacks



  • Organic vanilla whole fat yogurt
  • Gluten-free Muesli with nuts and berries
  • Fresh berries

4. PB&J

This is where gluten-free is out the window for us for travel snacks. However, a PB&J in a backpack while exploring cuts down on the wants for fries, ice cream, chicken nuggets, and other garbage travel snacks.


  • Organic Peanut Butter (Kirkland’s Organic from Costco is our favorite!)
  • Organic Fruit Spread
  • Dave’s Killer Bread

5. Oatmeal Goodness



  • Rolled Oats cooked with milk of your choice according to package directions
  • Honey to taste
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon to taste
  • Blueberries
  • Almonds
  • Raisins
  • Dried cranberries

6. Guacamole and Chips



  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 lime juice
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp shallot (I didn’t want an entire onion)
  • 6 grape tomatoes, diced
  • Freeze-dried cilantro (I can travel with it and keep it longer)

7. Assorted Fruit

travel snacks


Washed and cut-up fruit on a counter or a table where kids are playing games will be eaten up within minutes! Fruits cut up and left in containers in the fridge will mold.


    • Sliced Bananas
    • Sliced Strawberries
    • Sliced Grapes
    • Sliced Blueberries
    • Sliced Cantaloupe

In conclusion, don’t assume that kids will only eat crackers, cookies, and pizza.  Make the above travel snacks the only choices and observe what happens. 🙂
