Mmmm, snacks

Our number one rule always, is that you can’t hit the road with kids without plenty to eat and drink. In fact, nomming is considered a
highlight activity for our own little travelers. Here are some of our favorite picks for
healthy goodies that will help balance out the holiday cookies and candy
rush. These snacks are safe, low-mess options for car, and some of them work
just fine for plane rides, too.

Keep them busy
As
much as we love another round of the Alphabet Game, it’s smart to give kids all sorts of travel games and activities, from old-fashioned car games modern technology, to keep them occupied for the long road ahead. Can you avoid the dreaded “Are

Music to our ears 
There’s
no better way to drown out the backseat bickering than with a few
catchy traveling tunes. Whether it’s kid-friendly grownup music and
Grammy-nominated kindie rock bands, or a few classic audio books
everyone will enjoy, load up your MP3 player, grab a few sets of
headphones and turn up the volume.

Keep ‘em comfy
With
these cozy, comfy gadgets and gear, the engine vibration might just be
enough to lull your kiddos right to sleep. And these picks won’t take up a ton of room in your
car either. Just hope you don’t hit any red lights–or empty gas tanks.
