A commonly talked about theme when it comes to eating healthily is snacking. It’s one thing to eat healthy foods during our three basic meals of the day, such as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It can be a lot harder to do so when we’re craving foods in between, which is why snacking can lead to unhealthy habits. It turns out that many of the tips that people give for healthy snack habits can also apply to when we’re flying on a plane. Here are some great healthy foods you can eat on your flight.


Nuts are a super common snack to bring on a plane, for a handful of reasons. They come in a wide variety, they’re super healthy when eaten in moderation, they’re practical, and… oh yeah, they’re super tasty.

Granola Bar

You can’t exactly prepare yourself a bowl of oatmeal on a plane, but there’s something you can do that’s the next best thing. A granola bar will get the job done, and it’ll be easier than ever.

Beef Jerky

If you’re more in the mood for protein, beef jerky is the way to go on a plane. If you can’t get by without your meat fill, this is pretty much the next best thing you can do.
