Nutrition & Dietetics

The holidays can be a very busy travel season. It's still important to maintain good nutrition on the road or in the air. Consider packing a few of these snacks for the road that don’t require any refrigeration:

  • Peanut butter on whole grain bread
  • Pistachios, walnuts, almonds, peanuts or other nuts
  • Roasted edamame (or soy nuts)
  • Fresh whole fruit
  • Whole grain crackers
  • Whole grain granola bars

If given an opportunity to buy snacks at the airport or at a gas station, try fresh cut fruit or low fat yogurt, milk or cheese.
