Simple Summer Toddler Snacks for Road Trips

Have I mentioned how much we love taking trips as a family? Honestly, summer road trips are something we live and breathe for. We love short trips to the park as well as long trips to visit our family at the beach. However, one of the most frustrating parts of gearing up for the trips though are coming up with simple road trip snacks to keep everyone happy. We’ve partnered with Kroger and have come up with a solution that is perfect for road trips with busy toddlers.

My husband tries to have rules about eating in the car. This can be extremely tricky when we go on road trips and during the hot summer months when we all need to keep cool. That’s why when I pack for road trips I have to think about how to pack easy to transport, yet healthy snacks for my kids. I have to admit, one of the first snacks I reach for when it comes to my toddler are a variety of fruit pouches.
