If you're traveling with children, it's important to remember that they can't handle sandwiches if the ingredients have a tendency to slide out or if it is thick. Forget things that are going to stain the seats and floors of the car/van. Drinks with a cherry color just seem to gravitate to the carpet. Juice boxes which don't leak are perfect.
When planning snacks and meals for adults and children, think of things that don't need refrigeration:
canned fruit salad
In ziplock bags: cheerios, granola, nuts, dried fruits, trail mix, oatmeal cookies.
peanut butter sandwich
To a cooler add:
pimento cheese sandwiches
luncheon meat sandwiches
tortilla-cream cheese sandwich. (Mix cream cheese with nuts and dried fruit like pineapple and roll up like an enchilada.)
salads in containers
cream cheese dressing (add honey and cinnamon)
If you forget to get those little individual servings of mayo and ketchup. Add them.
disposable plates, bowls, forks, spoons
napkins, paper towels
Of course you may not need all of these things, but it will give you some ideas for food. What do you take on a road trip?
If you travel a lot, you may find the following video meaningful as I do.
I hope you enjoy it. Happy Holidays!
