HEALTHY TRAVEL FOOD IDEAS (to share with babies and toddlers)

Whether you are traveling by car or plane, going anywhere takes on a whole new meaning when you throw little ones into the mix. With everything you need to pack and get done prior to leaving, I hope these slides with easy, nutritious, and less messy foods will help ease your load!

TRAVEL FOOD

Reusable containers - Bento boxes are great because they are already divided into compartments so there’s no need for extra sandwich bags or multiple containers. I recommend packing one for each of your family members. – Reusable bags - Cute and inexpensive for travel. – Snack Catcher - Pack a big bag of dry cereal or puffs and easily fill these cups. It can really help minimize mess, too. – Refillable water bottle - You will save so much money and it's good for the environment. You can fill them up at gas stations, hotels, restaurants, airports, etc.

– If you are on the road, be sure to make a short snack stop. It is dangerous for babies to eat in their carseats as they are not seated in the fully upright position. Eating in a moving car poses an even greater choking risk. Seat them on someone's lap or a portable chair. – Be sure to cook and cut the foods appropriately so they are safe for babies. – Avoid anything that could pose a choking risk.

SAFETY TIPS

–Anything liquid or spreadable, Make sure it follows the 3-1-1 rule. – For foods that need to be refrigerated but can travel safely for several hours, it’s a good idea to eat them earlier on in the flight. – Limit peanut or other nut products. While they are allowed on planes, you just never know if any of your fellow passengers may be allergic.
