One of my favorite snacks for the car is leftover pizza. Kids love it, a slice or cut up squares can be held in one hand, it’s easy to store in aluminum foil or a plastic storage container, and it serves as a wonderful tool for leverage if you want your kids to behave. There is no better reward than the all-time favorite pizza for getting kids to get along in the back seat. If pizza isn’t your kids’ favorite, try any leftover food that’s easy to hold and will taste good at room temperature. How about cheese quesadillas?
Okay, so you don’t always have time for snack prep while you’re trying to corral children, plus luggage, plus phone chargers, plus water bottles out the door in a hurry. In a pinch, turn to a handful of store-bought kid-favorites with ingredients you can actually pronounce and understand. That includes Annie’s Homegrown Organic Cheddar Bunnies and Organic Cheddar Squares, Biena All Natural Roasted Chickpeas (kids especially love Ranch and Cinnamon Crunch), Mott’s Snack & Go Natural Applesauce Pouches, Skinny Pop Popcorn, and Justin’s Classic Peanut Butter with Banana Chips Snack Pack. Happy trails!
