One of the things we love to do with our 2 years old daughter is to travel small distances (think 50-100 miles radius around home). That does come with the main challenge of her losing patience in the car seat but also requires us to be creative with food supplies.
Snacking is always great since it does address really nice the “patience” aspect. However, the main concern for us was always what should we feed her, like a main course, during the trip and even while we’re walking around in a remote location away from the comfort of our home.
Conventional food pouches
One thing we initially started to do out of convenience was to buy all kinds of baby food pouches. Really easy to pack, great shelf life however LOADED with carbohydrates (read “sugar”) and other stuff we were not necessarily excited about. However, we’ve done a lot of research online on how to serve baby food on the go and we found the absolute best way to do so. Here it goes.
Reusable food pouches
As I was mentioning, food pouches are really convenient. You can purchase them anywhere, kids love them (because of the sugar), but they are expensive, ingredients are almost always not as trustworthy and crazy expensive.
So, after few weeks of research, my wife eventually discovered these baby food pouches from BabyBrezza
They are not only reusable, but BPA-free and, best part, they can be washed in the dishwasher! Yay!
What we usually do is put yoghurt and chia or hemp seeds and store it in a cool place while we’re traveling and then offer it to our daughter when she’s showing signs of being hungry.
We’ve used these for more than 1 year now and none of them failed us. They come in a set of 10 at a hefty $9.99 for the entire set and man, they’re amazing. We’ve saved not only a lot of money on the conventional, non-reusable pouches, but also made sure we control the ingredients we’re feeding our beloved daughter with.
That’s it. Hope you enjoyed this advice and, as usual, make sure you stay connected with our community!
