Oh, yes, we'll be stopping--we're traveling with four kids...and my youngest is three...we'll DEFINITELY be stopping along the way! I think I'm going to stock up on apples, pre-portioned nuts, jerkey, granola bars, celery & carrot sticks, and LOTS of water. Does anyone know of a good-for-you (or at least "better-for-you") cracker or something crunchy like that? I still REALLY miss crackers and I'm looking for a good cracker "treat", to be used on occasion.

Some fruits travel well, like apples, grapes and bananas. Also, not all granola bars are terrible. Are you stopping during your drive? Maybe if you map out where you'll stop you can check calorie counts for foods offered at the restaurants in the area. I just spent a weekend away from home, and went through the exact same thing. It really wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be. You've got this.

So, I have an 11+ hour drive coming up. I'm worried that I'll sabatoge my hard work. What snacks travel well, aren't too high in sodium, are filling, and will keep me awake when I need it? Also, what fast-food options are best?
