Photo from Diapers.comWhile I always hit the terminal Starbucks, I prefer the youngest in my family avoid the fast food traps at the airport. In order for me to be able to deprive them of Cinnabon, you'd better believe I need some tasty alternatives in my carry-on. Here are my picks for best travel foods for babies.
The first item you'll need in your bag is a container for all those num-nums, and the one we've had through two babies now, is the Munchkin Formula Dispenser. While this is the absolute best way to travel with formula, it works to compartmentalize our baby's favorite finger foods as well.
Our go-to snack for our baby has to be Annie's Homegrown Cheddar Bunnies. He'll put these away like his sister does the M&M's. Luckily they're organic and come in family size so it takes awhile before we have to make an emergency bunny run.
If your baby is still on jarred food, you'll need to remember the TSA regulations and keep it small. We usually serve up Earth's Best organics, but whatever your baby likes is crucial to your baby happiness. To make things easier when serving I fill the Boon Squirt Baby Food Spoon then re-cap the jar. That way you don't worry about spills from an open jar or fishing for a spoon when baby is ready for his next bite.
I don't know what my baby would do without his daily dose of yogurt. However, taking a yogurt container on the plane is not my idea of a good, clean time. When we travel I opt for Stonyfield Farms' YoBaby drinkable yogurt for babies. It's organic, good for you and our baby feels like a big boy drinking straight from the bottle.
When only a puffy fruit snack will do, we reach for Happy Baby Organic Apple Puffs. A big reason for this is the easy to pack and open/close container. Also it's another organic snack we can feel good about stuffing down his gullet.
