Road tripping snacks for toddlers

The key to a successful road tripping experience is preparation. If you are prepared, the trip will be a lot easier. Little ones need snacks more often than adults do and a hungry toddler is not a happy toddler. It can be tempting to pack sweets and other treat type snacks, but these are not always the best option.

We have put together a list of snacks that are healthy and that your toddler will enjoy.

Dry wors – this is such a great South African snack. It is high protein so fills them up nicely. It also helps ease itchy gums if you have a teething toddler.

Cheese – you can cut up cheddar cheese into little sticks or you can by the pre-packed triangles of cheese.

Mini Muffins – preferably homemade muffins that don’t have too much sugar in them. Pack a mix of sweet and savoury onesToddler Snacks|BabyWombWorld


Smoothies in a pouch –  you get a nice selection of both sweet and savoury flavours of smoothies in pouches. You can freeze the sweet ones and then your little one can enjoy a slushie as it starts melting.

Dried fruit and nuts

Raw veggies – this is another snack that is not only healthy but can help your teething baby. Cut up some carrots, peppers, cucumbers and beans.Toddler Snacks|BabyWombWorld

Mini rice cakes

Avoid giving your child too many sugary snacks while you are stuck inside a car or even an airplane. Keep the treats for when you reach your destination or are about to make a stop. If you have more than one child, pack each one their own little snack pack, it will prevent fighting over snacks and it adds to the excitement of the trip.
