My Fav Travel Snacks

You managed to make it to the airport on time! Phew, that was close. But now you hear a noise and feel something in your stomach. You’re hungry. Don’t waste time in line or at a vending machine. Be smart and pre-pack some snacks. Here are my favorite travel snacks!

Dry Snacks

Peanut Butter is my absolute favorite! Peanut butter goes well with fruit, veg, and dry snacks like crackers and pretzels and is filling. Just a reminder If you are flying, the TSA website states that you can carry on less than or equal to 3.4oz/100 ml of liquid or gel-like foods.

Granola bars are a super easy snack you can toss in your carry-on or personal item. A good mix for me is sweet and salty. Yummy! Most granola bars are high in fiber, which can hold you over

Dried Fruit such mangos, bananas or apple chips, apricots, raisins, and more are great travel snacks. Dried fruit is prepackaged, requires no prep to eat, has several health benefits, and can help satisfy your sweet tooth.   

Crackers of any kind, such as graham, saltine, animal, Pb, or even whole wheat crackers, can satisfy a hungry tummy. It’s not a meal but can hold you until you receive one.

Trail mix is the ultimate travel snack. The mixture comes in several flavors ( sweet, savory, and/or spicy) and usually consists of various nuts, chocolate, dried fruit, and more. Great for an on-the-go snack.


Fruit is a must for me. Apple slices, bananas, or grapes are easy-to-pack fruits and require minimal effort to consume.

Veggies such as carrots, peppers, snap peas, or celery sticks are a great healthy snack for any trip. For a more filling serving, pair it with hummus or nut butter. If flying, be sure your hummus or dip of choice is less than or equal to 3.4oz/100 ml.


Water, water, water is a must for any trip and will definitely quench your thirst. If you want more flavor, look into single-flavored powder packets to add to your plain water, flavored water, fruit juice, or a sports drink.

According to TSA, the airport security checkpoint allows liquids less than 100 ml/3.4oz. Remember that every airport is different, and rules and regulations may differ.

However, you can bring single-flavored packets, tea bags ( ginger, lemon, camomile, etc.), coffee, hot cocoa, ask a steward for bottled water or a cup of hot water, and enjoy your beverage. 

No one likes to be hangry. Whatever your choice of snack is, I hope you save time and energy by packing a couple of your own.
