Hello fellow travelers! Summer is here! That means many of us will be packing up the car and heading off on an awesome family road trip. Whether you're going cross country with a car full of kiddos or a romantic weekend get-a-way for two, you're going to be stopping to eat. Here's some fresh food options while on the road to keep things light and your tummy happy! That's to 7-Eleven for this Family Road Trip info. Compensation was provided by 7-Eleven via MomTrends.
Fuel Up For Family Road Trips 7-Eleven Now Has Fresh Food
You don't always have to plan exotic trips to make summer vacations fun. Many of us will be hitting the road for a family road trip. We've got the kids some car ride entertainment down to keep boredom at bay. You know you've put together an awesome road trip play list to sing along to. But, what to eat along the way that doesn't involve the greasy spoon cafe or typical burger joints?
It's nice knowing we can fuel up the car and hungry bellies at 7-Eleven with fresh food on the family road trip. And, because we're all in a hurry to get to where the fun waits, we can do both all in one easy stop.
It was really a nice change when we walked into 7-Eleven and say the Fresh To Go options! Gone are the limited choices of a bag of chips, stale donuts and candy bars. There's a whole new section filled with some really great options that won't make you feel the least bit guilty!
They stocked up on fresh made sandwiches, salads with healthy veggies, fresh packed to-go fruits and even bistro snacking packs with pita, cheese cubes, carrots and hummus for dipping. Not what you're used to in convenience store grab and go foods!
7-Eleven is making great strides to expand their Fresh Foods line to offer a wider variety of better for you on-the-go options. The world’s largest convenience store retailer makes it easy to grab a quick bite with balanced Fresh Food options for today's health conscious families. This makes it much easier to keep my waistline in check. I didn't work hard trying to slim down and shape up for summer only to blow it on the family road trip!
While they of course still offer your everyday favorite snack items, they've now opened up a whole new choice for us when it comes to family road trip meals. I was quite impressed to know 7-Eleven’s fresh foods are prepared in local kitchens and delivered to stores daily ensuring premium quality products. Who says you can't have healthy car food while playing ISpy or counting how many state license plates you can find?

The more ya know, right? It was nice to hear that while we may be strapped into the car for a couple days for that trip to see grandma or the first family roap trip to the beach, we don't only need to be filling up on junk food. There's plenty of summer fun waiting, go grab it and feel good about what you're eating on your way!

We have a few road trips this summer. Food is the most important part.
What a fantastic selection of fresh food to go. This will be a great option on our next road trip.

I'm glad to see 7-Eleven is offering more than the chips and fast food options they're known for (although those are good). This is really great.
I did not know that 7/11 had fresh food! We need to stock up for our road trip to take our son to camp, this is helpful info!

Okay, now this is pretty cool that 7-11 carries fresh food now! How convenient!!
It's nice to find fresh food at a gas station. We always stop at 7-11.
I just tried their salad and was really impressed! I have no idea 7-Eleven had fresh food.
I had no idea 7-11 offered fresh snack options. This is going to be great to remember for the summer travel plans we have scheduled.
I'm glad that 7-Eleven offers these healthy food choice options to grab snacks on the go. That is quite important and certainly beneficial for all involved.

I bet this is very convenient to those traveling! I have always loved 7-Eleven.
I’m glad to see 7-Eleven is offering fresh options. It will be great to have more than fast food to choose from next time we're on a road trip.

Oddly we don't have a 7-11 anywhere near here, but I sometimes see them while on road trips with friends, it's good to know they have fresh food options! Nothing puts a stop to a good trip faster than hunger!

That is really cool. I haven't been to a 7-11 in ages. I don't even know where they are around here! LOL But, good to know they have healthy options now for when I am traveling.

We are gluten-free which can make pit stops on road trips tough unless we want to eat candy for the whole trip (my kids would probably like that!). Having somewhere to buy fresh food that is also gluten-free is always appreciated. Will look out for this on our next trip.

It's so difficult to eat healthy on the road! It's great to see another business helping with that problem!
Wow, they do have some great options! I never knew you could get such fresh stuff!
I love they they are offering real and fresher choices. Awesome.
This is great news! It has been so hard to find anything besides chips that are gluten free. Fresh fruit is going to be my choice for the road now!
I would love to go on a road trip this summer. They can be so fun!!
This is great! I love the idea of being able to g the apple slices and some fruit bowls. That's really great!
Wow, so many great fresh options for families on the go! I'm going to have to stop there more often
