It’s summer and we have a few vacations planned. We will be heading off on a family vacation this week and it is the first trip that we have taken since our 7 year old outgrew his milk allergy. This is a HUGE relief, but it also means that now we will be preparing less food at the hotel and eating at restaurants more often. The boys are excited about this, but I still want them to have some healthy snacks for the 3 hour road trip, the amusement parks, beach, zoo and parks. So here are a few of the travel snacks that I am taking along with us.
Hydration is so important, especially during the summer months when its hot and we are more active outside. Personally, I drink a lot of water! I mean ALOT!

Making your own infused water is very easy to do and the flavor combinations are endless!
