Travel Tips

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.


IQ Bar

This plant-based, gluten-free, nutrient-enriched, loaded with protein and low in sugar and net carbs bar is a complete snack. With flavors like banana nut, lemon blueberry, matcha chai, chocolate sea salt, peanut butter chip and almond butter chip, there’s a flavor for every palate. Split one with the kids or let them choose their own sweet, fruity or savory flavor. With 160–170 calories per bar, they’re a quick, satisfying snack for your mind and body that won’t undo your whole day.



This two-in-one snack is half jelly, half nut butter (travelers with allergies beware) and completely clean-eating approved. Made with only four whole ingredients, loaded with protein and healthy fat, these packets are made with zero preservatives and no GMOs, and are palm oil and gluten free.



Choose from protein bars, oats, nut butters, special kids bars and a variety of travel snacks with simple ingredients for all ages and taste buds. Choose from flavors like chocolate cherry, lemon, coffee chocolate, banana chocolate walnut, chocolate sea salt, mixed berry, apple cinnamon and more, you could easily load up on a variety pack and have a different to-go breakfast for trips and busy work days to come.


GoGo Apple Sauce

To keep the kids busy, full and happy with something a little sweet, GoGo Apple Sauce squeezable packets come in a variety of flavors and are mess-free — seriously. Just open the top for the little ones and let them feed themselves, no utensils required. These are great for on-the-go days or between meals back at the Airbnb or hotel.


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.
