My family is enjoying healthy snacks as part of a sponsored series with GoGo squeeZ and Socialstars. #GoGosqueeZSquad
Will you be traveling with kids by car this holiday season? We certainly will be! Whether driving substantial miles to visit relatives and friends, or short distances for day trips close to home, you may find these 3 tips for keeping kids happy on the road helpful.
Wear Comfortable Clothes
It may seem obvious, but when children are comfortable in the car, they are less likely to become cranky. They are also more likely to nap—parent win! The day of a long car trip, we encourage our children to wear soft cotton pants and shirts. If we are traveling at night, they wear pajamas. Bringing along a favorite blanket or stuffed animal makes children feel safe, cozy, and comfortable while traveling.
Pack Healthy Snacks
Cool water and healthy snacks are important to bring along on long car trips. Low-sugar granola bars, fruit, sandwiches, cheesesticks, and GoGo squeeZ applesauce pouches are a few of our top picks. GoGo squeeZ pouches are delicious, nutritious, all natural, and gluten/nut/dairy free. My kids call them “sqeeZy drinks” and are currently loving the goodness of the Apple Cinnamon and Gimme Five! flavors.
MOM TIP: While traveling, keep a couple 100% fruit GoGo squeeZ pouches in your purse just in case service is slow at restaurants during your dinner stops. GoGo squeeZ says no to ingredients you may object to; no artificial anything.
Keep Them Entertained
My kids stay busy in the car with books, fidget toys, movies, and sketch pads. A small basket between their seats makes items accessible and easy to put away.
