I like to bring whole wheat muffins with fresh fruit and vegetables inside. I add chia seeds and flax seeds so they pack an extra punch of nutrition. My 2-year old loves them and my husband and I love them, too.

Trail Mix is a good go-to for snacks- protein, fats, carbs all in one (and it is nutritious and filling and all natural). You can put whatever you have on hand in a ziplock and go. I usually go for a mix of dried/freeze dried fruits and vegetables, seeds, and nuts. Sometimes I add Cheerios or other dry/plain cereal. I choose dried/freeze dried fruit with little-to-no sugar added. For an extra special treat, you can added a few M & M's or chocolate chips. No need for refrigeration, portable, easy!

Depending on the child's age. Raisins, soft foods but not gooey, like cheese sticks if not too hot. I would stay away from crackers or messy food. What does the child like and have a great container to put it in.

I try to pack something home made that I know is healthy and nutritious like these banana pancakes or baked sweet potatoes. We also take along organic fruit and vegetable pouches such as the sprouts pouches.

Homemade Granola Bars! They are portable, filling & super duper nutritious snacks to cut through the “hankiness” (hungry = crankiness) until dinner...especially on the road. Unfortunately, sometimes there is a list of ingredients on the labels that are longer than my favorite novel. It includes everything from tons of butter and oils to preservatives with boat loads of sugar. My “Apricot-Granola Bar Nibbles with Dark Chocolate Topping” are little cuties that are simply made with natural ingredients, yet showcase wholesome dried fruit, honey, sun butter; finished off with some antioxidant-rich dark chocolate. Kids love them and the mommies and daddies will definitely be sneaking in a few bites.

My little ones love applesauce squeeze pouches when we are on the go. I also like to stock the baby bag with pretzels, goldfish, and trail mix.

We have a gluten and dairy allergy, so fruits or veggies with peanut butter or hummus (doesn't go bad fast), nuts, Larabars (nut and dates and fruits). Dry cereal that they like too.

Pediasure! My girls always seem to come up with an upset stomach whenever they sight an airport. I like Pediasure because it's a calorie-packed, dairy-free milk substitute. My twins consider it a treat as well. I usually start a trip with one or two packs of 4 and if we start running low before the end of the trip, I dilute with water to make it go further.

A close second is cereal bars
