Now that the weather is nice.  My husband and I keep talking about places we want to take the kids this summer!  We always take a few trips up to Door County, Wisconsin.  Plus, my husband and I on taking a little road trip to Chicago as well.

We make some great memories during family road trips.  We love spending time biking and hiking as a family during the summer months.   We like to pack everything we need into our van, including food!

We like to eat healthy when we traveling.  I hate the feeling of stopping at a restaurant while on a road trip and finding no healthy options.   Plus, when you are traveling with little kids, it is important to have healthy snacks on-hand.  It makes road trips go much smoother.

I put together these “Road Trip Snack Boxes” to take on the road with us.  I tried hard to include things that were filling, and to include foods that my kids really like to eat.  Your family can snack on these while in the car, or you can stop at a rest stop and have a mini picnic too!

I also like to make sure that my car is ready for summer road trips.  I like to make sure my oil changes are up-t0-date, that my tires have air, and I also like to give my car a nice vacuum before a family trip.

Another thing I have recently started paying attention to is my car’s air filter.  I recently changed out the filter in my car, and the inside of my car just seems cleaner.  Most people don’t even know that a cabin air filter is something you should change out every year, or every 12000 miles.

Changing out your air filter can help keep your family healthy, when you travel together.

I picked up a FRAM Fresh Breeze® cabin air filter at Walmart.   Before you pick up this product, you need to make sure you pick up the correct air filter for your car.   You can hop on to Walmart’s website and plug in your vehicle information.  You will then get the correct part number that you need.

I filled these snack boxes with things that are easy to eat in the car.  fruit, pretzels, ants on a log and crackers.  You don’t have to include these exact things in your road trip snack boxes, there are a few snack items that I wouldn’t suggest for car trips.

Bananas- too slimy

Muffins – too crumbly

Watermelon- too juicy

juice boxes- too sticky

Crunchy granola bars- too crumbly

those are items that are a little messy for Road Trip snack boxes.

Changing out your FRAM Fresh Breeze® cabin air filter is a great way to get your car ready for warmer weather.  Don’t forget to pick up yours!



  1. Thanks so much for sharing these road trip snack ideas. We road trip often, and it makes such a mess of our car! I guess I should plan my snacks a littl better to avoid all the crumbs, squished food, etc. #client

  2. Everyone usually go for a road trip just for fun. Even someone can’t afford to take a massive vacation, he can still enjoy peak travel season by getting in to his car and driving somewhere for making fun. So, whatever may be the fact, when someone decides to go for a trip during the summer, then it is a wise move to take some snakes with him because it is not only for mood refreshment but also it can be a meal replacement in some cases. That is the main reason why healthy snacks are usually preferable during a long road trip. Apart from this, as role of car is very vital, so one should thoroughly inspect it before drive and if he finds any kind of issue then he must have to take the help of an expert in order to fix it. So, overall the blog was quite appreciating.

  3. Summer is the time for long drives. Before it, you have to prepare everything. At first, you have to check your vehicle thoroughly for a hassle free journey. Its brakes, engine oil, tire pressure, air filter, ACs and windshield are to be carefully checked by an excellent mechanic. To satisfy your kids and to your own stomach, you have to make arrangement for snacks in the vehicle. For this, you can fit in road trip snack boxes within your vehicel.
