Traveling with Kids: How to manage food for Kids on the Go             

And when it comes to foods and travel, every parent’s mind is flooded with questions about the type and amount of travel foods to carry? It is also important to take something which is simple and hassle-free. So that everyone, including yourself, has a good time on the vacation. There are a few great travel foods that can be considered, regardless of the mode of transportation, such as a car, bus, train, or plane. 

If the age of your baby is between six and twelve months, it’s important to choose the right meal for them. Since they are fairly new in the process of being introduced to solids.

Below are a few baby foods for travel:



Milk is the complete food for babies and toddlers. Especially for babies below 12 months of age, milk is the major nutrient source. While traveling in a private vehicle, you can nurse your child, but it can be a problem in public areas. However, you can pump breast milk in advance and feed your baby at mealtimes. 



You can always carry fruits or veggie purees as travel foods for your baby. Keep the mash ready and add a little amount of water or milk while you feed. 


Porridge can be prepared using moong dal, rice, or any other cereal. These are easy to digest and require less time for preparation. It is a great source of nutrition and keeps the baby full during the journey. 


Infants and toddlers between the ages of one and three are now more familiar with eating solid food, but they still require travel foods that are hygienic, not spicy and well-cooked.



Different fruits and vegetables are also a great option while traveling. Veggies and fruits provide a satisfying crunch with a load of vitamins, fiber, and minerals. It’s easy to carry fresh vegetables like cherry tomatoes, blanched broccoli or cauliflower, and small carrots and fruits such as grapes, bananas, apples, and berries. 



Energy or granola bars can be easily made at home with healthy components. They are delicious and filling, on top of that, they also keep your child energized throughout the trip. 


Children can enjoy dates and dry fruit chikkis, ragi, or peanut chikkis while traveling. This type of food is healthy and has a longer shelf life.


Traveling with this superfood is a breeze, and it’s loaded with minerals like calcium. They are light on their tummy and kids love the taste of different flavors. Pack in proper containers and keep it in a cool place.



Nuts and dried fruits are arguably the greatest snacking options that can help maintain energy levels, ease digestion, and help you fuel up for the rest of the day. As long as there are no nut allergies in your home, nuts are a fantastic and nutritious baby food for travel. 


Muffins are always the kid’s favorite and healthy grab-on-the-go snack especially while traveling. When it comes to food and travel, homemade foods are the best.   You can make homemade muffins using healthy ingredients like whole wheat, fruits (apple, banana), and seeds. 



Makhana is a great healthy food for kids as it supports brain development. They are also loaded with bone-strengthening minerals. Moreover, it is loaded with protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and carbohydrates.


Ideal drinks for babies and toddlers are milk and water. Also, carry a few fruit juices that your child likes. Keep them hydrated.


When traveling with a newborn or toddler, there are some travel foods you should avoid. To ensure a stress-free trip for you and your baby, cross these foods off your list:

  • Packaged oily snacks should be avoided as they may cause problems related to digestion.
  • Soft drinks – with high sugar
  • Spill-prone liquid foods should be avoided. Children cannot handle liquid foods and they easily spill it.
  • Never carry new and untested foods that may not go well with your baby.
  • Do not carry foods that are prone to spoilage.  

Traveling with your baby should be a special experience for both of you. Carry foods that are easy to feed your baby and make sure the whole journey is stress-free. To make the trip enjoyable, you must exert some effort and have a lot of patience.
