Packing for a long road trip can be difficult. Making sure you have everything you need, but also making sure you've got enough snacks for you and the kids is crucial. Keeping everyone feed can make the trip go faster and smoother. When my family sets out on a long trip, my wife always has a wide variety of snacks for the kids to enjoy. Chips, crackers, fruit snacks, cheese sticks. My son's favorite thing to snack on either in the car or at home is beef jerky. Jerky was recently named the number one snack food for road trips by the folks at Triple A. Some things to remember when packing snacks include laying off the sugary treats. You don't want your kids hopped up on sugar and then confined to your vehicle! And don't get anything too messy. The kids and your car will pay for it!
