Question: Food/snack ideas for traveling in car- 2- adults 1- 4 year old!?
We are planning a highway drive that will be about 6 hours long!. We want to limit our stop time, and dont want to eat McDonalds drive through!.

Looking for some easy, cheap, healthy food ideas to make at home, or buy at grocery store ahead of time, and take in the car!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I'd definately pack a big cooler with juice and water, but watch how much everyone drinks, or you'll have many bathroom breaks!. (we bring our potty on trips for quick road side breaks!.)
Muffins, crackers, goldfish, raisins, nuts
Cut up veggies -carrots, celery, and fruit -bananas, strawberries apples, any melon!. I cut the fruit into chunks and put them on wooden skewers so there is less mess and sticky fingers!.
Pita pockets are less messy then sandwiches and can be stuffed with whatever you family likes, ham and cheese, salami, ect!. I make these ahead of time!.
Make a pizza the night before, and snack on cold pizza!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
