Healthy Snacks for Your Road Trip

Family by Car Packed for Road Trip | Eustis, FL

If you’re going on a long road trip with your Chevy, it’s a good idea to bring along snacks that are nutritious and easy to eat in the car. Light, healthy foods will keep you feeling energized, instead of feeling sick and weighed down by junk food. Here are some of the best healthy snacks for your road trip.

Fruits and veggies

If you’re bringing a cooler, bring some vegetables such as baby carrots, edamame, and bell pepper slices. These are not only tasty but will make you feel full without eating a lot. Try dipping veggies in hummus for more flavor and a punch of protein. Fruits are great too, especially low-mess options like grapes and pre-cut orange slices.


Dry meats like beef jerky or deli meats kept in the cooler can be a good source of healthy protein. You can also make hardboiled eggs to keep in the cooler, or buy them already boiled and peeled to save time. For the vegetarians, marinated and baked tofu cubes are a delicious and longer-lasting option.

Crackers and cheese

Crackers are a perfect light, healthy snack, especially when paired with cheese cubes for a combination of carbs and protein. If you’re a big cheese fan, bringing cheese sticks or string cheese to snack on keeps you healthy and happy.


Bread or crackers paired with hummus, peanut butter, or deli meat makes for a snack that’s more filling and like a real meal, while still being quick to make and easy to eat. You can also make sandwiches in advance and leave them in the cooler for a quick grab-and-go.
