Whether on a long family road trip or between destinations, finding healthy options on the go can be a challenge. You won’t be cooking too many, if any, meals and you need to eat.


Adhere to the family’s nutritional needs, avoid allergy-inducing foods and stick to your routine while out and about with this list of health-conscious chains.


Zoës Kitchen

For some healthy Mediterranean options, try Zoës Kitchen. With locations across the country, choose from dine-in or take-out options including everything from chilled cauliflower bowls and Greek salad combinations to warm power grain bowls, Mediterranean chicken and spinach roll ups.

The chain restaurant offers fresh ingredients and a full list of the menu’s nutritional information online so you can stay on track even while traveling. Connect to WiFi and read the menu ahead to order to go while traveling so it’s ready when you arrive or take a break and enjoy the comforts of the modified restaurant service.


Tender Greens, Veggie Grill and Native Foods


For those in California, you’ll have your fair share of fresh and healthy convenience dining options. Check out Tender Greens for fresh, clean and light dining options on the go. Grab a snack for the road you know will sit well with the kids while meeting nutritional needs, like a fresh smoothie or bowl.


Along the Pacific coast, including California, Oregon and Washington, Veggie Grill and Native Foods both offer fast, creative and healthy cuisine. Even peppered in the Chicago area, travelers can opt for healthy “fast food” options from veggie burgers to Jamaican jerk wraps.



Grab something quick and healthy from any one of the many Freshii locations around the country. Enjoy everything from breakfast sandwiches and smoothies to light sandwiches, salads and soups for lunch and frozen yogurt for dessert.


Order something to go with the ready-made lunch box option, or take a break and dine in from the made-to-order menu. Perfect for a day of sightseeing, driving or just a family picnic, Freshii offers something for every dietary restriction.

Chipotle provides a wide range of Tex-Mex options including most dietary restrictions. Check out the Dietary Option menu for a breakdown of offerings for everything from low-calorie foods to vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free and no sugar added diets.



Desperate times call for fast food. Your best bet for healthy options is Chik-Fil-A. With a variety of chicken sandwiches, wraps and salads all offering grilled and fried options (even nuggets) you will have plenty to choose from. Grab a meal specific for the kids with grilled chicken nuggets, fruit and juice, or chicken noodle soup. Even vegetarians can load up on kale side salads, fruit cups and yogurt parfaits.
