Field Trip Snack Packing Tips:
Head to your local Target and make a #MyTargetEssentials list to include prepacked items that are easy to pack the evening before the field trip. Avoid having to run to the grocery store the day of the trip.
Easy to Eat:
Sometimes field trips can be rushed or the parents might not be able to attend. Pack items that kids can eat on their own without assistance. Example: prepackaged granola bars and juice boxes that are kid favorites but super easy to eat and drink.
Do not forget the liquid! I am notorious for packing food and snacks but forgetting the drink. Simply Balanced Juice Boxes are the perfect size for a lunch bag/box and filled with organic fruit juice!
Kids are weird eaters, one day a Simply Balanced Fruit and Veggie Squeezer might be their favorite, and the next day it may not interest them. Pack like you are a picky eater and make sure there are a couple different options for your child to choose from.
Make it Special:
Field Trips are a fun treat in school. Make these field trip snacks a special treat, surprise the kids with these delicious options when they open their lunch bag during the field trip!
Enjoy a Snack:
Are you a field trip mom? You deserve a snack too! Pack one for yourself! Yummy!

Snacks are a must. I will have to grab some of these the next time I am at Target.

Definitely need easy to eat snacks that are not too messy especially for toddlers. I always carry extras in my handbag.
Love snacks that are not too messy. I never remember to pack napkins.

I love the Simply Balanced snacks for the kids and me! We use them for field trips and lunches!
Heather Lawrence says
We are sadly lacking in the snack department.
I really need to stock back up..we are always on the go and most of the time we could have USED a quick snack.
Excellent tips! Nothing worse than kiddos that are hungry and whiney (who can blame them, I don't like being hungry either!) These look like great snacks to have on hand!
Annie Stow says
I love trying new products which other moms love! I'm going to check these out on my next trip too!
Great tips. Like anyone else, I also love trying new things for my family. I will definitely keep these tip in mind.

It is so important to pick good snacks for our children. When we give them good snacks it helps them to eat better all the way around.
Ah I'm notorious for packing the eats and forgetting drinks too. Glad I'm in good company 😉 and of course I'm working on improving that too. 🙂
