As parents or grandparents, uncles or aunts, siblings or cousins, you may have been there before – on a road trip with a hyper-active child! It’s not always a pleasant experience, and the culprit? All too often it’s sugary food and drinks to blame. If you’re a parent with young children about to embark on a school trip, there a myriad of healthy and delicious snacks to feed your children and keep the teachers sane at the same time! With CK Travel and our school bus hire services, we recommend these healthy snacks to consider on your child’s next school trip…
- Granola bars
This is such a versatile snack which is low in sugar and high in fibre. They can simply be eaten on their own, crumbled into yoghurts for a smooth and crunchy treat, or broken down into a sweet and salty treat with added peanuts, pretzels and raisins in a re-sealable zip lock bag.
- Peanut butter pancake sarmies
What’s not to love about peanut butter and pancakes? You can simply buy premade mini pancakes, spread with peanut butter and jam and then sandwich together for a tasty treat that’s not too high in artificial sugars and additives!
- Cream cheese and jam pinwheels
All you need is a whole-wheat wrap, some plain cream cheese and your child’s favourite flavour jam. Spread the filling over the wrap, roll up and slice into pinwheels!
- Chicken and cheese pita bites
This simple snack is made by warming up a whole-wheat pita pocket, filling it with cheddar, mozzarella or even Melrose cheese and filling with shredded chicken. Slice into quarters for delicious pita bites!
- Mini fruit and cheese plate
Peel and dice up your child’s favourite fruits – such as apples, pears and strawberries and mix in small cubes of cheese with the fruit. Make sure to seal in an airtight container!
If you’re looking to plan a school excursion, CK Travel and Tours offer superb school bus hire options. We offer school buses for rent – catering for groups of 15 – 70 children at a time. Keep them healthy and we’ll keep them safe!
