25 Gluten Free Mom & Toddler Approved Traveling Snacks

25 Gluten Free Mom + Toddler Approved Traveling Snacks

This summer is full of traveling for us. Whether it be a day trip or one of our cross country treks, I am always looking for healthy, delicious snacks to take on the road with us.  

This week, the fruit bandit and I have decided to take a cross country flight back to visit family and friends. I am both nervous and excited to travel with him alone. Being a typical 3 year old, there is a lot of inpatient moments and the desire to be independent and do everything himself coupled with the need to still snuggle and trade copious amounts of kisses with me at any given time.

So, seeing as how he is “Mr. Independent” and likes to do it all himself, the fruit bandit received his own snack bag in his backpack this trip. His bag was packed with everything from fresh and dried fruit to yogurt covered goji berries, a homemade trail mix from my friend Sabrina, and of course a few treats as rewards. Of course no trip would be complete without fresh baked chocolate chip cookies! Thanks to our wonderful friends at Cappello’s for sending a few tubes of their amazing gluten free cookie dough for our travels. I think we are all set for a tasty flight! Wish us luck.
