Your Healthy Travel Snacks Checklist

Packing your own healthy travel snacks not only ensures your commitment to staying on track with your diet, it also helps you resist the temptation to purchase unhealthy and costly junk food at the airport and during the trip.

Here are some examples of healthy snacks to pack:

  • Raw unsalted nuts
  • Bars (protein bars, fruit/nut bars, natural fruit bars or granola bars)
  • Dried Fruit
  • Pretzels (in a sealed container or bag to avoid getting smashed)
  • Popcorn
  • Dark chocolate
  • Whole grain dry cereal
  • Homemade cookies
  • Water (avoid tap water)
  • Coconut water or Aloe Vera with no added sugars
  • Juice boxes in tetra pack (sterilized that last at room temperature, pick the least sugar ones)
  • Chocolate covered fruit or nuts
  • Apple or fruit chips
  • Rice Cakes or light crackers with light cheese
  • Protein powder in a shaker bottle (add milk or water)
  • Dry oatmeal cup (add hot water)
  • Kale chips
