Care packages are a great way to stay connected with your loved one during a military deployment. Not only can you send sentimental items such as kids artwork or gifts but they are also a great way to send necessary items that your loved one might need while they are away.

Snacks are usually one of the top items that people send in care packages. While most go-to care package packing lists will list sweets and junk food, there are a lot of healthy options you can send as well.
