Pack kid-friendly snacks for the road

Car snacks are a road trip must have, but choosing the right kind is imperative. Skip anything gooey, sticky or that may melt in the car (like chocolate). As a matter of fact, forget the sugar-loaded treats all together since they only trigger unwanted backseat bouncing. Hardy fruit and veggies like baby carrots and grapes are a terrific choice (leave the bananas since they bruise so easily). Prepackage munchies like crackers and cereal in snack-sized zipped bags for easy snacking.
