Like many families this summer, my family will be taking a road trip for our week long vacation. We’re heading to the Lake George region of upstate New York. My parents took me each summer till I was eighteen, so I’m excited to continue the tradition with my almost 3-year-old daughter, Ava, this summer.
The drive from door to door is almost 3 hours hours. This may seem like a short road trip, but anyone that has children knows that a 3 hour road trip can feel like an eternity with a toddler. That’s why I prepare small snacks and toys to keep my daughter happy and entertained during the time.
Heinz Little Kids snacks are perfect on-the-go and road trip treats for growing young children. Prepared in Canada since 1934, the snacks are made for children between the ages of 1-4. Each snack is nutritious with no fillers, artificial flavours, gluten free and no sugars and salts added. They’re also triple tested for quality, safety and nutrition in accordance with the company’s Purity Assurance Program.
As a parent of a young child, I learned early on that fruit squeeze packs can be a real life saver on a long day out! There also perfect for road trips because they’re mess free and provide a little snack while helping keep children hydrated. Heinz Little Kids Apple concord Grape is one of Ava’s favourites. The squeeze packs seem to satisfy her whenever she gets antsy or cranky!
Ava also enjoys the Heinz Little Kids Banana & Greek Yogurt Oatmeal bars, a new addition to the company’s line of snacks. The bars are easy to chew and made smaller to encourage self-feeding. They’re also whole grain and an excellent source of 11 essential nutrients including iron & calcium. Despite being healthy, the bars are tasty and mommy sometimes shares one with her!
These snacks will be definitely accompanying us on our road trip this summer!
Heinz Little Kids Snacks can be purchased at grocery stores around Canada.
