It’s almost that time of year when schools are out and we get some extra family time traveling, going on day trips, or staying home and just putting our feet up (we’ll take any of the above, please!)

No matter what your plans are for Yeshiva week, you’re bound to need some amazing snack options, preferably ones that are great for packing and traveling with.

Not only does hunger affect adults, but as those with kids know, feeding them well can really make a difference between a successful or a stressful day out.

Everything on this list is durable and great for grab-and-go. There are salty snacks and sweet treats for both kids and adults. In need of packable quick meals that don’t require refrigeration, for when kosher food may not be an option? We’ve got that below, too! We’ve even included links you can order from to save you a shopping trip (hey, you’ve got enough on your to-do list).

Wishing everyone safe (and yummy) travels.
