We drove from Wisconsin to Tennessee with almost no fighting and lots of snacking. I cleaned the car out before we left, and I was determined to keep it sort of clean. I broke my no eating in the car rule, but I only let the kids eat non-crummy snacks, which meant I sat with a stuffed picnic basket at my feet. The kids ate:
Z Bars: We went off of these for awhile because of the arsenic in rice flour, but I read the ingredient label, and it was no longer at the tip So, WHAT THE HECK. Also, they are not crumbly like a granola bar.
Z Fruit: THE BEST road trip snack
Fruit snacks: The Costco ones are both organic and plentiful
Made Good Granola Minis: We bought a YUGE bag of these at Costco
Beef jerky: This-- also from Costco-- was big hit, but the smell almost killed me
Fruit by the foot
Fruit Roll Ups
(I am not linking to any of those because you can find them anywhere poison masquerading as food is sold)
Cuties, grapes, string cheese
Honest Kid juice boxes and tiny bottle of water
(I am also the only person who ate any of the fruit, and I also chewed all of the gum myself).
Away we goooooooo!
