The Best Ever Travel Snacks

Whether you are traveling by plane train or automobile this holiday season one thing is for sure, good for you snacks are a must. I’ve put together a list of the best travel snacks that are healthy, satisfying and a few treats thrown in for fun.

Besides bringing bottled water and paper towels, some other things that are good to have on hand: wet wipes for sticky fingers and surfaces, if traveling by car bring some towels to put over laps to avoid messy spills and have easy clean-up, a waterproof garbage bag or two for tossing the unwanted stuff, skip the soda, we even skip juice and prefer our refillable water bottles.
