Summer is right around the corner and schedules are beginning to fill up fast. Between sporting events, graduations, summer camps, and weekend travel plans, there is a lot to keep up with! Keep eating habits on track with our essentials for building travel snack packs and care packages.
If your BFF or partner has an upcoming trip, surprise them by packing a few of their favorite snacks from home. Forget airport food! Throw together a travel pack of snack pack almond flour sea salt crackers, vegetable sticks with a handful of nuts or a sweet yet energizing treat like these healthy cookie energy bars.
Whether it’s tee ball, tennis, baseball or soccer practice, warmer weather brings outdoor sports. If you’re running from after school activities with very little time in between, healthy snacks are more important than ever. Be sure to include some fresh vegetables with a filling fat like these nut butter snack packs, fine ground sea salt almond flour cracker snack packs,a water bottle and sunblock.
Recent grad near by? Send them off with everything they will need to succeed in the next chapter of their lives. Essentials include: gift certificates to their favorite cafe or smoothie stop, a reusable water bottle for class, healthy snacks, sweet treats like crunchy cookies, extra desk supplies, photo frames and recipe books.
Kids or little relatives going off to sleep away camp? Fun care package items include handwritten cards and letters from family members (pets included), homemade trail mix, soft baked cookies to share with their new friends and any comfort items that were accidentally left behind at home.
Whether your a busy mom or just busy on your own, it's important to make time for yourself. Waiting for the kids to finish up at their after school activity? Enjoy your favorite sprouted seed crackers and easy-to-make dip while you read your favorite magazine. Relax in your car while you listen to your favorite podcast or catch up on a chapter or two of your book while you sip on an afternoon tea or coffee and enjoy a homemade blueberry muffin.
The spring season may keep you busy, but no matter where your travels take you, remember to pack some snacks and other essential items that will set you and your family up for a successful (and delicious) springtime season.
