We will be traveling 3000 miles over 5 days with 4 and 2 yo in tow! What are some good travel foods and snacks that keep well and are tasty too?<br><br>
We are taking the normal carrot, cucumbr, radish and pickle slices but I need more than that. My kids are BIG snackers so I really need some nutritionaly packed stuff that isnt full of gross stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

do you have a trader joes near you?<br><br>
in terms of their products off the top of my head, i can think of:<br>
dried fruit/nuts/trail mix (they just started stocking dried lychees and freeze-dried rambutan which are both absolutely delicious and should keep kiddos happy and entertained for a while, the rambutan especially)<br>
rice crackers<br>
easily portable fruit like tangerines/clementines<br><br>
also, you can bring along some avocados and make fresh guacamole on the fly if you have a bowl and a fork.

veg too but we would like to try more vegan snacks.<br><br>
I only have a very small natural food store accesible here, but when we go through Utah I think there is a Wild Oats and a Whole Foods.

They are veggie but her DH is borderline vegan. I know, I'm her sister. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
We do trailmixes and fruit bars/sticks/spears mainly. Anything dehydrated basically.

Raisens are good traveling food and highin iron. I also like crackers, lucky ducks and things like that. They have cheese in them though. But I like the sweet and salty when I'm on the road.<br><br>

i just tried larabars and they're really yummy! my 14.5mo dd and i love the ginger ones. a little pricey, but it's nice that everything is in a bar, so it's not as messy in the car as a bread or cracker type of thing.

My 2 and 4 yo love sweet potato biscuits. We make them all the time (use cookie cutters to make them into fun shapes) and they are very portable and stay good for a long time.<br><br>
My kids also eat a lot of dried and/or fresh fruit, boiled eggs, and veggie chips. There is a new brand of chips that seems fairly not-junky, Frito Lay's new brand of "Flat Earth" dried fruit chips. The mango peach variety is divine!

I like to keep their protein up and their blood sugar stabilzed when traveling. it's helps to keep travel fatigue and grumpiness at bay.<br><br>
I tend to rely on things that are easy to eat, not too crumbly and offer good nutrional bang.<br><br>
Hardboiled eggs, almond butter and/or hummus on whole wheat bread, cheese sticks, & things like frozen Stoneyfiled Farm organic yogurt tubes, aspetic boxes of smoothies (freeze these first, as well. they help to keep other things in the cooler cool, and they are refreshing to drink. I only use aspetic boxes during travel. You can also make your own smooties and put them in your own water bottles. Fill halway and freeze).<br><br>
I have shyed away from trailmixes in the car for little kids. I am a little paranoid about choking in the car...

Are you doing a road trip?<br><br>
We always bring a cooler with us on road trips. We fill the cooler with ice and put tall plastic containers in the ice. The containers sit on the bottom and reach almost to the top. That's the only way we've been able to keep the melting ice water from getting into the food we keep in there.<br><br>
In the containers, we keep things like jelly, cheese, black bean spread, and so on. We keep aseptic single-serve packages of soymilk and bottles of water in the ice. Every morning we drain out the extra water and add new ice.<br><br>
Then we also keep a box in the trunk with other food supplies: peanut butter, bread, chips, dried fruit, crackers, knives (for cutting cheese or spreading peanut butter, etc.), paper towels, glasses<br><br>
The last trip we took I also printed out a list of veg-friendly restaurants and natural-foods stores from <a href="http://www.vegetarian-restaurants.net/usa/index.html" target="_blank">here</a>. That way we had a few options of places to eat where we knew we could get something other than a plain baked potato! We also stopped at several natural foods stores along the way. We got some great picnic supplies at these stores, and it helped refresh our supplies of things like soymilk.

Cracker Sandwiches<br>
Milton's crackers or whatever brand you like and fill with almond butter or sunflower butter to make sandwiches. Put into a container and you've got a great snack that will last.<br><br>
Dried banana chips<br>
Lara bars<br><br>
Tortilla wraps<br>
take a tortilla and fill with whatever you want (avocado, almond butter, etc...) and roll up for a delicious and fun snack.<br><br>
popcorn with nutritional yeast flakes<br>
I second avocados<br>
baked tofu<br>
nuts<br>
olives<br>
beans<br>
grape tomatos<br><br>
can't think of anymore at the moment!

Bearitos makes a great black bean dip that doesn't need refrigeration (unless you open it & happen to have any left).<br>
They make individual-size cans of garbanzo beans - great with pitas and the veggies you already have.<br>
Muffins<br>
nuts & dried fruit
