Going on road trips may mean stopping by every dhaba and roadside stall to load up on some fried and oily foods, chips and candies or soft drinks. Because these seem to be the most convenient options available. Not giving in to the temptation of junk food is something that travellers need to consciously keep doing. It can get even more difficult when you have people along with you, people who love to just keep munching on something. But surely your gut will not love you for that. All that can be avoided if you just plan ahead. Bringing your own snacking options is a wonderful way to keep a check on your overall health. And it is especially the best thing to do when you have kids with you. 

We have curated some of the healthiest snacks that you can munch on all along the way while humming along to ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’. These are great even when you are camping out while trekking, or staying in a place where good food may not be available.

This brand's millet and grain noodles are power packed and gluten-free - a healthy replacement to the usual hakka noodles made of maida. Various millets - including ragi, bajra, jowar - and grains like rava are used to make these noodles. There are a variety of choices offered by Homemakerz, a brand that began by adapting age-old recipes by grandmothers in 2018 to cater to the demands of today's consumers. The noodles are highly nutritious, trans-fat-free, 100% vegetarian, and packed with calcium, iron, dietary fibre with a hint of salt, and purified water. Rich in anti-oxidants, they can be seasoned with the herbs and spices of your preference - they make some really good ones. You may add the Red Chilli Sauce or Thai Chilli Garlic Sauce that is available on their website, or pick up one of their flavoured salts and voila! Your noodles with a nutritious twist are ready.

Did you know that hemp is nourishing to the body and great for the environment? And the ingredient seems to have taken off in a big way with brands making foods, and body oils and more. We love this brand's proprietary healthy seed trail mix - it's a great on-the-go snack. Made from hemp hearts, flax, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, this superfood not only improves your energy and immunity but also has a positive effect on your mood. It contains healthy fats like Omega-3, 6, and 9, which help to decrease inflammation and protects your heart, skin, and hair. Full of magnesium and protein, it makes you feel fuller and satiates your hunger for a longer time. This trail mix can also be added to multigrain bread, cookies, juices, salads, and smoothies.
