WW Friendly Travel Snack Ideas



Are you planning for an upcoming family vacation and need some snack ideas for traveling? As a family we travel quite often and the key to staying on track while on the road or air traveling is making sure I have plan ahead and carry a variety of low point snacks with me-otherwise I find myself not making the best choices. 

While packing for our 11 hour road trip I compiled a list of my top 12 favorite WW snack ideas. Whether you need an on-the-go snack or packing for next road trip-this list has something for everyone!


1. Protein bars

There are so many options out there.  Here are my top 3 favorite protein bars:

Built Bars: They are only 3 Freestyle Smart Points, 110 calories and 15 grams of protein. Build You can now pick your flavors with BUID YOUR OWN BOX and customize your box between 2, 4, or 8 flavors.  

You can get 10% off with free shipping with promo code: pound2019.  These bars are not found in stores and can only be purchased on their website here.

Protein One Bars: are also a great choice. They are only 90 calories or 2 Freestyle Smart Points. You can find these at your local grocery stores or here on Amazon.

FITCRUNCH Snack Size Protein Bars: They are 6 Freestyle Smart Points, 190 calories and have 16 grams of protein. They are higher in points however they are insanely irresistible. They are the best chocolate peanut butter protein snack bar I’ve tasted. These bars can be found at Costco, Walmart or here on Amazon. 



2. String or Laughing Cow Cheese

The Laughing Cow wedges are my favorite soft on the go cheese. They are 1 Freestyle Smart Point each and very low in calories. When paired with whole-grain crackers, mini bagels or fruit, they can provide a calcium-rich, high-fiber afternoon snack. String Cheese ranges from 1-3 Freestyle Smart points. 

3. Mini bagels   

I love the Western Bagel mini bagelettes. They are 1 point each and make for the perfect mini sandwich. You can get a 10% discount and order them online in Onion or Wheat flavor on their website here

4. Nuts

You can purchase the individual snack sizes which are great for traveling. These 100 calorie packets are great for portion control and are only 3 points per bag. You can find these individual snack size nuts at most grocery stores or here on Amazon. 


5. Applesauce

The GoGo Squeez on the go applesauce packets are 3 points and perfect for the car or airplane.

6. Fresh Fruit

Bananas, apples, blueberries, mandarin oranges, navel oranges and strawberries are all wonderful options.

7. Smart Sweets Treats

These individual gummies are low in sugar, high in fiber and only 3 points per bag. You can get a 10 % discount and order these online here for your upcoming trip. 

8. Cut Veggies

Cut carrots, red or green peppers, broccoli, cucumbers, and celery are all fantastic choices. Place them in individual baggies and in a small cooler.

9. Popcorn

This is delicious snack that everyone loves. I especially love the Skinny Pop individual bags that are only 3 points.


10. Hard-boiled eggs

A large hard-boiled egg only has about 78 calories and is packed with more than 6 grams of protein. It will keep you full. Place them in individual baggies and in a small cooler.

11. Pop Chips

These Popped potato chips, popped sweet potato chips, popped corn chips – you crave, it we pop it! Never fried, not baked & always real our popped potato chips have all the flavor & only half the fat of leading fried potato chip brands. Popchips are gluten free!

Was wondering if there is a "printable" version of this....similar to the way you did your Fast Food list. Thank you. This is the best - as are you!

I just packed for my morning flight, happy to see you and I have similar choices. I never leave home without laughing cow! I just made my breakfast wrap, whole wheat tortilla, 1 Tb peanut butter and raspberries, my version of peanut butter and jelly! Sometimes I do banana, apple or strawberries. Who needs jelly when you can have the fruit!

I've started packing Jack Links turkey jerky. It's 2 pts per serving and doesn't make me miss beef jerky at all.
