You’ve planned for a family road trip ahead to a favourite destination, and everything is set to sail smoothly. But your children can make a fuss from being hungry once you hit the road.
Learn how to make a satisfying yet straightforward travel meal box with easy items like snacks, fruits, and a MILO® box drink.
Choose Simple Food Items
When you’re on a road trip, your kids may not be able to wait until the next stop before they want to have their next meal. They would most likely be hungry in the car, and some food items can make a big mess.
If you bring a lunch box with proper and accessible food, you can avoid this from happening. Keep everything simple and easy – pack a couple of fruits, snacks and a drink in a box that they can pop and drink right away. Avoid food with many sauces, dressings, or anything that could stain your car.
Know Your Travel Plans
It’s best to know specifically about your road trip to plan how much you should include in your kids’ meal boxes. Finalise your itinerary and map up your journey.
Will you make visits to restaurants for lunch and dinner? How often would you make stops in between? These details can help you plan their meal boxes better without including unnecessary food items that will go to waste.
Make The Meal Box Nutritious
Your little ones might pester you for snacks and sweets in their meal boxes, but you have to make their meals balanced and nutritious along the journey, too. Mix and match combinations of carbs, like bread or biscuits, with enough fibre like simple fruits and vegetables.
An example of a good travel box contains:
- Egg sandwiches.
- Simple fruits like bananas or apples.
- A good chocolate malt drink.
