Read on for some simple food hacks which you can follow if you are travelling with your toddler.
I love being a mom and everyone who knows me would sooner or later agree with my larger than life display of love for my son. However, I too have my moments and then all hell breaks loose.
Whether you are a stay at home mom or a working mom, making sure that your child is well fed, is always the biggest worry in the world. Today, after I picked my son up from school, I had to run a few errands and also make a quick trip to the supermarket and while I was making sure I mentally ticked all the items to purchase from the supermarket, I was about to hit level one of paranoia, because my son hadn’t had a snack (and believe me it feels like a crime sometimes when your child is unfed for more than 2 hours).
I was about to pick a chocolate and a biscuit which had some high funda hullabaloo about it providing certain amount of energy and having a mix of nuts too (nuts are healthy by the way), but some good sense prevailed, maybe the angels in heaven were really watching over my son (well there is this story about disciplining my son, that involves two angels watching him all the time).There was a fruit cart nearby, I picked up an apple, got it billed at the billing counter. I was carrying an extra bottle of water, so washed it ( you get bottled water at supermarkets….tsk tsk) and since I always carry a Swiss knife, cut it into half and handed it over to my son.
Ahh!! The peace that set into my mind, that feeling of getting my son to eat something healthy, was just like the feeling of, India winning over Pakistan!!
So, the next time you got to travel with your babies\toddlers, here are some quick snacks that you can carry. Also make sure you have a small knife wrapped in an aluminum foil, which will help you to cut things.
Finally, Mr. Google and Pinterest always have answers for us moms, who are seekers of treasures of health for our kids. Just ensure you avoid giving your kids too much of packaged food because no matter how healthy they claim to be, they will always have some preservatives added to make sure it stays on that supermarket rack.
Mommies who cant do the above, just trust your gut for whatever you decide, because after all mommy knows best.
Happy Searching, Travelling and Raising up Kids Mommies!!
