You know the drill: you're driving around and you get the munchies and you cave and head to the nearest drive through. While a little fast food can be okay, you can be a bit greener if you take the time to prepare and carry your own snacks for times like these. Parenting Squad points out that by carrying some healthy drink options and durable snacks (like nuts, granola, or dried fruit), you'll save some money when it comes to you or the rest of the family needing something to eat.
The benefits add up from there, of course. By preparing your own treasure trove of treats, you'll reduce waste, make sure you eat what you buy, and keep everyone happy until you get home.
So, carve out time this weekend to ask folks what they want fast access to. Then, make a trip to the store and stock up. You can even create a quick art project if the entire family gets together to decorate your snack pack. Re-purpose something else (like an old shoe box or tissue box) for a unique container on the go.
