4 Nutritional Packing Hacks for Any Family Outing

Nutritionist and Founder of Naturally Savvy, Andrea Donsky shares her tips on how to pack healthy snacks and eat clean on all of your summer outings.

Segment Highlights:

Day Trip Bag

  • Give everyone their own cooler bags
  • Pack sandwiches, dips, and salads
  • Pack containers with dividers and fill them with popcorn, pretzels, and veggies
  • Keep an extra bag of snacks on hand for those times when you can't find healthy snacks on the road

Sports Bag

  • Try some hydration-electrolyte powder or fruit infused waters.
  • Cut up fruit is always a great option to replenish electrolytes
  • Make your own freezies from teas and naturally sweetened juices
  • First-aid kit with arnica, bandages and tape
  • All a few peppermint oil drops for smelly shoes


  • Pack an assortment of salads: Green salad, fruit salad and/r pasta salad
  • Bagged veggies are a great option since they are pre-cut and pre-washed
  • Place basil, thyme, and mint around the picnic blanket to repel bugs
  • Set the picnic blanket up near plants that attract butterflies like Sage, Butterfly Bushes and Day Lilies

Beach Bag

  • Finger foods are always good because if their food falls in the sand, they won't lose their whole sandwich
  • Sprinkle some baking soda onto your skin and wipe it off to remove the sand
  • Always use a mineral based sunscreen

[Editor's Note: We love Goddess Garden's Mineral Sunscreen that goes on clear.]
