Grab-and-Go Healthy Snacks!

 We may be used to hearing “don’t drink and drive”, but studies have shown that eating while driving can affect your ability to drive correctly. A study done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has proved that some foods that can distract you while driving and why. Here are just a few foods that you may not want to eat while driving.
 Tacos: When you hit that pothole and your taco turns into a fiesta bowl on your lap, it’s sure to cause some dangerous vehicle movements.
Any Barbecued Food: If it can drip, it will find a way to do that while you’re driving. Getting barbecue sauce all over your clothes will lead to distracted driving.
Drinks with caps: Searching the floorboard of your car to find that water bottle cap rolling around takes your eyes off the road in a worse way than texting and driving.
Hot Soups: Eating soup while trying to manipulate a gearshift is not a smart idea. It’s the basically the same as circus juggling act.
We should take more precaution about the foods we decide to eat while driving. There are plenty of on the go snack bars that we can choose for a busy lifestyle that may not only be safer to eat while driving, but beneficial for our health.
