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. With 160–170 calories per bar, they’re a quick, satisfying snack for your mind and body that won’t undo your whole day.

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.

Chances are you know South Beach or have heard about the southernmost section of Miami Beach — 23rd Street to South Pointe Park. It’s the historic Art Deco district with stunning white and pastel buildings lining Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue and beyond.
