Summer is just around the corner, which means road trips and travel in general are about to kick into high gear. Not only is it important to pack toys and games to entertain kids while traveling, but you need to bring along plenty of food. With an eye towards eating healthier, our family has been scouring the stores for options that travel well. Here are some of our favorite easy to pack organic snacks.

Easy to Pack Organic Snacks
Organic fruit snacks that are easy to pack
1. Go Organically Fruit Snacks – these come in several flavors: fruit medley, mixed berry, and tropical, and are made with real fruit and no preservatives. They’re gluten free, dairy free, and nut free, making them perfect for everyone.
2. Phyter Nutrition Bars – these veggie-based bars are free of chemicals, preservatives, and added oils or fats. They need to be refrigerated (or freeze them to take on a trip and eat later), and come in five unique flavors. We enjoyed the Sweet Potato + Coconut (tastes a bit like carrot cake) and Berries + Peanut Butter (like a PB & J sandwich). Really easy to pack and good for you!
3. GoGo squeeZ Organic AppleApple sauce – my kids will eat these by the box full. They love the variety of flavors (AppleBanana, AppleCinnamon, AppleStrawberry) and I love that they’re eating fruit!
6. Pure Organic Layered Fruit Bars – two fun flavors, pineapple/passionfruit and strawberry/banana.
7. Newman’s Organic Berry Blend – dried cranberries, raisins, blueberries and cherries are a great on the go treat.

9. Made in Nature Olive and Sea Salt kale chips
10. Annie’s White Cheddar Bunny Tail puffs
11. Boom Chicka Pop Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn – it’s hard to stop at just a handful. You’ve been warned.
