Q We will be traveling from Kansas to Philadelphia this June by plane, and I am looking for ideas for a "survival" package of portable snacks. You see, I will have one wiggly 3-year-old, an always hungry 7-year-old, and two teens traveling with me. I'm looking for homemade snacks that are neat to eat and appeal to the different ages of my children.

- Cathy


You're smart to think ahead, and there's nothing better to offer comfort and make the trip fly by than a bevy of tasty snacks. Portion each of these three irresistible snacks into resealable plastic bags so they're easy to hand out as soon as hunger strikes.

Your wiggly toddler — and the rest of your bunch — will love our colorful Gumdrop Hermits, soft spice cookies that are chewy and delicious. For a salty craving, offer up Cheddar Shortbread Bites, a cheesy snack sprinkled with sesame and poppy seeds and baked crisp. Satisfy sweet cravings in an instant with a handful of Golden Glazed Snack Crunch — a fabulous mix of cereal, pretzels, raisins and peanuts with a crunchy sweet glaze.

Add a bag of individually-wrapped Land O Lakes® Snack N' Cheese To Go® Snack Cheese and you're ready for take-off!
