Homemade Foods For Kids While Travelling

My Little Moppet

It’s a joy travelling with family. The experience of exploring new places, meeting and interacting with different people, and acquiring skills and knowledge will stay with the child forever.

However, one of the things that you worry about most is the food your kids are going to eat while travelling. Due to the unhygienic condition of most restaurants, it is always safe to carry homemade food for kids while travelling.

But a busy lifestyle leaves most of you with little time to prepare food for a journey. Some try to overcome this problem by packing their travel bags with junk food like chips, chocolate, cakes, etc., which have no nutritional value but are high on calories and fat. With a little effort and planning, you can ensure that your kids continue to have access to healthy snacks even while travelling.

According to an article published by, Dr Simran Saini, a dietician with Fortis Hospital, says that dry snacks are probably the best things to take along when going on a vacation. Another dietician, Dr Anita Lamba, stresses on the efficacy of snacking as a habit. In her opinion, periodical snacking has refreshing effects on one’s mood and can also help in fighting those in-between meals hunger pangs
