The Snack Pack
Posted on 11.11.2015
It’s that time of the year again. Families are already preparing to catch a plane, train, bus or even drive up to that holiday destination of their choice. Whatever the mode of transportation, families with young children need to take a little extra effort when travelling to make sure that the children are comfortable while travelling. While keeping them entertained is one thing, keeping them well-fed is even more important.
With a bit of know-how on what types of snacks or food to pack for your children, your trip won’t be such a hassle anymore.
- What to pack
- One-bite cookies (not the ones that crumble)
- Crackers and chips
- Bread with their favourite jam or cheese
- Dried fruits
- Baby carrots and cherry tomatoes
- Granola bars
Avoid bringing along large chunks of food that may turn into a choking hazard – whole grapes, nuts or popcorns. Cut the foods into smaller pieces as these are ideal when feeding in a moving vehicle. These snacks should be easy to hold for the children, easy to eat, not messy, crumbly or sticky.
