On-the-go snacks can be a game changer for long travel days for anyone, let alone families with children. Well-balanced meals can be few and far between on busy travel days, when stuck at the airport or if rushing from one thing to the next with kids and luggage in tow.
Having a few healthy snacks in your carry-on or work bag can be a great way to stay alert, energized and ready to take on the day.

Split one with the kids or let them choose their own sweet, fruity or savory flavor.

Dry Cereal and Granola
Another great way to satiate the kids between meals is the classic Ziploc bag of dry cereal or granola, easy to make, pack and serve nearly anywhere on your next family trip. This one may be best for the really little ones, while cereal bars are ideal for the older kids so they can feel like they’re eating something a little more substantial.
There’s not much spookier than getting lost in a maze cut through tall stalks of corn — especially in the dark. The first corn maze is attributed to a farm in Annville, Pennsylvania. Since then, mazes have become huge autumn attractions. Many of today’s larger mazes are cut with the help of Global Positioning Satellite technology, allowing maze makers to create intricate shapes that add to navigational challenges.
