Healthy Travel Snacks You’ll Appreciate on the Go this Holiday Season

Media samples of some of these healthy travel snacks were provided. 

I love Christmas vacation!  While we generally stay close to home during the holidays, every few years we find ourselves booking a trip and taking off during the season.  Healthy and portable snacks are an important part of holiday traveling.  Whether you’re flying through the air or stuck in Christmas traffic, Here are a few must-have, travel-size products to take with you on the go.

I tend to get really dehydrated when I travel and depending on the weather I can also get really queasy :/  so when we drive I always make sure I have something tasty to sip on!

Cased in 7 fluid ounce bottles, Brooklyn Crafted’s small but mighty ginger beers pack a zesty punch and are made with 100% fresh, unfiltered ginger pieces you can actually SEE, and the ‘sweet’ is provided by pure cane sugar. Available in four trendy flavors – Traditional, Earl Grey, Lemon & Lime and Mango – the minis are perfect for enjoying on the go.  Ginger has also been a favorite of mine for helping with nausea and motion sickness, so it’s the ideal beverage for me to bring on road trips 🙂

I still prefer to have everyone drink ‘neutral-color’ beverages in the car.  You know because of spillage.  There is only one thing worse that I can think of cleaning out of the car more than red, purple or orange dye.  So 90% of the time it’s water we’re drinking IN the car.  Plain water is good, but flavored water is fun!   

You can Keep the kids hydrated and happy this travel season with AquaBall – a naturally flavored sugar, zero-calorie, zero-preservative water.   Available in four flavors – Berry Frost, Fruit Punch, Grape, and Strawberry Lemonade – AquaBall features fan favorite characters from Disney’s Frozen, Disney Princesses, Marvel’s Avengers and Disney Classic Characters.  These are really yummy, and Kid Approved, with the Disney characters they know and love, your kids will actually ask for them.

Since driving all day with the family can often be hard 😉 You better bring some good wine with you. 🙂 

That’s why  Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio, which comes in a 375ml bottle, makes it the perfect night-cap for your travel day’s end.  To create their signature varietal, they start with fully ripe Pinot Grigio grapes, harvested from their Alto Adige vineyard in the Italian Alps by hand to ensure that the clusters remain whole and retain their delicate aromas and flavors.  The grapes are soft-crushed, then carefully fermented in temperature-controlled tanks. Several additional weeks of aging are then used to fully develop the flavor that made Pinot Grigio famous. Then it’s filtered, bottled and made ready for the most important stop on its journey: YOU!

 While the above beverages are a great option for road trips (they are too large to be brought through airport security) – here are some healthy food options you can bring in your backpack on your flights.

NEW Welch’s Fruit Rolls deliver the same quality consumers love in Welch’s Fruit Snacks, in a new, irresistibly fun format. Featuring fruit as its first ingredient, they come in three mouthwatering flavors: Berry, Tropical Punch, and White Grape Strawberry.

Packed in a re-sealable pouch, Gaea Olive Snack Packs offer 100% natural and liquid-free olives, harvested from the finest olive groves in Greece. These Snack Packs are available in three different flavors, including: Pitted Green Olives marinated with Chili and Black Pepper, Pitted Green Olives marinated with Lemon and Oregano, and Pitted Kalamata Olives (100% natural and sun ripened).

Whether you are packing up a camper, a car, or flying by plane, consider bringing a few of these healthy snacks for a road trip.
