October 16, 2020 | Household Moves, Moving Guides & Tips

Moving day is right around the corner. In the midst of packing, storing, wrapping and planning, don’t forget to take care of yourself by drinking plenty of water and eating well! The best way to ensure you stay nourished is by planning ahead and prepping your moving day snacks and meals.

Not sure what to make? The experts at Wheaton have put together a list of easy, healthy, delicious food options for the big day!

Snacks for Moving Day

Trail Mix 

Trail mix is salty, sweet, delicious and most importantly… filling! This simple snack is packed with protein and healthy fats to keep you feeling nourished for longer than other foods. You can buy pre-made trail mix from the store, but if you make your own, you can use your favorite nuts and fruit to make it extra delicious!

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites 

These cookie dough bites might not seem like the absolute healthiest option. However, they are packed with protein and fiber! These are an especially good snack if you have someone in your family with a serious sweet tooth.


Simple. Healthy. Delicious. Cut up your favorite fruit, and put it in containers for the big day.

Snack Bars

Snack bars are great for an afternoon pick-me-up or for a quick breakfast. Make sure the snack bars you pack for the big day are low in sugar and high in protein. The last thing you want is a sugar crash for the kiddos!


Almonds contain healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. This simple snack can also lower blood sugar levels, reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol.

Meals for Moving Day

One-Pot Soup 

A delicious one-pot soup is a great option for moving day. It can be made the night before—with minimal dishes—and kept in a tupperware container for the next day.

Crockpot Chili or Stew

Throw some veggies, broth and spices in a crockpot, and let it sit overnight. By the morning of moving day, you’ll have a crockpot full of delicious chili or stew! This is an especially nice meal if you’re moving in the fall or winter.


Sandwiches are a good option for families with picky eaters. Each family member can make their own sandwich with their favorite toppings and put it in a ziplock bag for lunch on moving day.
