We are headed out on a road trip to Chicago! Our family loves road tripping, discovering new areas and foods and we’re here to tell you that packing your own road trip food doesn’t have to be boring (or come in a bag/box). From homemade hummus and veggie sticks to fresh fruit, there are so many easy kid friendly snacks you can take on the road with you.
Some of my favorite ways to power up and give the kids a snack that sticks is to pair apples or celery with peanut butter or whip up a batch of easy guacamole. Today we are combining celery, apples, and peanut butter for something even better. Kiss that chorus of “we’re hungry’s” good bye – at least for a little while – with celery and peanut butter apples.
Ooooh, look at that! We’re on the road in the middle of nowhere and there aren’t many places to stop for a quick snack. Good thing we have apples, peanut butter, celery, and a plastic knife. Bring. It. On. Oh yes. In case you are wondering, my laptop doubles as my prep space.
One thing that will make these snacks a little easier is the fact that I chopped up a bunch of celery for dinner salads, but an apple and a plastic knife? Not sure who’s going to win this one? Just read on and see.
What are YOUR favorite snacks to take on the road?
