I'm going on an 8 hour road trip tonight. What things do you pack for snacks...

And dinner. I'm out of lunch meat so sandwiches aren't an option.

  • I stop for actual meals. Snacks, I pack crackers, trail mix, fruit that doesn't need refrigeration, like apples & bananas. And, I bring water bottles.

  • Burger and pizza with cold drink or tea or coffee is may be good dinner for you. In snacks you should take chips, patties, biscuits and fruit cake etc.

  • If you are taking any kids, avoid giving them anything with a lot of sugar. You don't want them hyped up while stuck in the car. Carbs are good.

  • Make yourself a big thermos of coffee to keep you awake (because coffee shops on the road tend to be in town and you'd end up making your trip longer)...then find out where a Little Ceasers is on the road (cheap $5 pizza that will save you $$ rather than fast food) , make peanut butter crackers or homemade cookies, bring a knife for cutting apples or oranges...
    Have a safe trip!!

  • I would pack a cooler. Throw in some waters, juices, veggies, dips and any other cold things. Peanuts, raisins, licorice, gum, homemade trail mix, granola bars, suckers.

    A thought is also to bring extra damp paper towels or hand wipes as well as grocery bags for garbage, cards, magazines/scissors- if they are old enough they can cut out their favorite pictures and words to make a collage later, (envelopes' to store cuttings in) yarn for hand knitting or making bracelets...

  • If you don't have lunch meatbut don't want to stop for fast food, how about peanut butter or tuna or egg salad? That would be all right in a cooler for eight hours if you have those long-lasting ice packs. Drive careful; watch out for idiots on the road.

  • I probably will have to dash into a drive thru. Yes, I do have kids with sugar sensitivities too. I've put individual a snacks in their lunch kits. Mango slices, pickles, an apple, string cheese, orange, yogurt and flavored water. I hope this is enough.
