3 Healthy Snacks to Get at the Airport

Hungry at the gate? Don’t wait, just buy these healthy snacks

We’ve all made New Year’s resolutions, and many of them are about staying healthy, getting fit, and losing weight.

But when you’re traveling, it’s hard to stick to the diet you planned out so carefully – especially when you’re limited to a few different airport eateries and to-go venues. But here are three snacks you should turn to when you’re waiting at your gate and why they are better options.

Beef Jerky

This is an excellent source of lean protein and, therefore, energy, but make sure you choose a brand that’s free of nitrates and artificial flavors to take advantage of the healthiest version of the snack.


Bags of nuts are always available at airports, and they’re a healthy (and protein-packed) go-to snack. They’ll curb your appetite and give you energy, whether you choose almonds, pistachios, peanuts, or any other type. Just be sure to choose raw nuts if possible.

Snap Pea Crisps

These healthy snacks, which come in bags at airport shops, are made with snap peas. Snap peas have a multitude of health benefits, including protein and fiber. Also, they have a satisfying crunch, so that’s a plus.
