Breakfasts to enjoy on the road
Ideas for car snacks
At WW, we'd never tell you that one fruit or vegetable is better than another—unless we were talking about car messiness. Purely on that point, all produce is not created equal. Carrot sticks are neater than juicy nectarines. A crisp apple won’t drip onto your shorts the way watermelon might. And many drivers love bite-size fruits and veggies such as seedless grapes, cherry tomatoes, and sugar snap peas—more steering, zero juggling.
Of course, fresh fruits and veggies aren't your only snacking option. (Please.) The travel-friendly ideas below can help keep you satisfied between pit stops. Happy travels!
