The best and worst snacks to give kids in the car

Top tips on how to clean some of the most common snacks given to kids in the car

As the family car is transformed into a travelling tuck box for the summer holiday, our research has revealed which snacks parents should pack and those which should be given the boot.

Over a quarter of parents admit they will give their kids anything to avoid the dreaded ‘are we there yet’ question, but it appears that it doesn’t need to be unhealthy treats which hit the road.

Despite their soft and spreadable natures, hummus and fruit were identified as the easiest to clean from the car, while milk and chocolate proved the toughest to remove, according to expert car detailer, Tom Puttick, who we enlisted to carry out the research.

Worst to best in-car snacks to clean:

  1. Milk
  2. Chocolate
  3. Yoghurt
  4. Ice cream
  5. Crisps
  6. Biscuits
  7. Popcorn
  8. Muffins
  9. Banana
  10. Hummus

As nearly a quarter of parents claim they no longer clean their cars regularly, and a tenth go even further to say they never clean their car anymore, help is at hand in the form of baby wipes, which according to Tom are just as essential as games and sat-nav for family car journeys.
