Grab a good glass bottle with a reliable top and pop a yummy green smoothie or fresh fruit smoothie in. Again, freeze this baby a few days before -- pour it straight into the bottle and leave a few cm at the top before you freeze it. I use this Fresh Strawberry and Kiwi smoothie as an ice brick for other car snacks and when defrosted it’s ready to drink.

Pack in the fibre and veg and ignore the flashing lights of roadside restaurants. These lentil rolls from Lunch Lady Magazine are the ideal travelling companion.

Balls of all kinds are perfect for car-snacking and with three kinds to choose from, you're bound to find a healthy snack the kids will love eating as much as they love assembling. It might be a good idea to skip the 'roll in coconut' step because coconut and the car aren't a good mix!

This is a fool-proof, kid-proof choc chip biscuit recipe from Maxabella Loves. So simple you'll find yourself asking the kids to make them all the time. Remember to pack them into individual brown paper bags so the kids can catch the crumbs as they eat.
