Top Tips for Food and Family Travel
Travelling with a baby can seem daunting at first, but we've collected a selection of tips and tricks that will allow you and your little one to enjoy your trip!
Firstly, it’s important to allow extra time while travelling so you can take breaks with your baby every few hours. Even a quick stop for a nappy change or to stretch your legs, can benefit both you and your child! In addition, make sure you pack enough nappies, food, and other essentials in case of delays of restrictions.
As for creating travel baby food, here are some easy and quick foods to feed your little one:
- Easy to mash foods that don’t require cooking, such as bananas, mangoes, or berries
- If you have access to a kitchen, you can cook soft vegetables such as peas, carrots, or sweet potatoes; they are a good way to allow your baby or toddler to feed themselves while on the go.
- Depending on your access to other foods, other great options are scrambled eggs, tiny bits of chicken, shredded cheese, or cooked pasta.
- For travelling with a baby that is very new to eating solid foods, you can bring single-grain cereals usually fortified with iron and you can mix it with formula, breast milk or water.
