A Registered Dietitian’s Guide to Road Trip Snacks


Macey – RDN, LD

Snacks are an essential component to any good road trip. Not only do they add some fun to the trek, but they also prevent hangry passengers (because who wants that)! Having filling, feel-good snacks on hand is key. I also know the importance of convenience when snacking on the go. So, I compiled some easy ideas for nutritious snacks that will keep you fueled on your next adventure!

  • RX Bar
  • Kind Bar
  • Tuna packet
  • Unsalted nuts
  • Whole wheat crackers
    • Wheat Thins
    • Triscuits
    • Whole Grain Goldfish
