Travel Tips For Families On the Go
Family Eating Outdoors
  
  • The food in developing countries is often very good-it certainly won't be shot full of chemicals and preservatives the way so much of ours is. But in many places hygiene leaves a lot to be desired and you have to be careful about what your children eat. What won't affect your stomach may well prove to be disastrous to your children's less hardened digestive system.
  • Always carry snacks with you, particularly if you are going walking or traveling by bus, train or car. Even if you know there are shops around or the trip is scheduled for just an hour-remember that delays are not unusual and that when you arrive shops may not have anything suitable for your child to eat. So carry sultanas or raisins, nuts, an apple or orange (bananas go mushy very quickly), some juice or milk cartons, some bread or biscuits.
  • Also handy are the small individual cartons of fruit drinks, complete with sealed straw, which are now familiar throughout the world. They make a great safe alternative to soft drinks and are easily transportable so if you're traveling in a remote region it's a good idea to stock up on them when you find them.
  • If you are bottle-feeding your baby the main issues will be: clean water and sterile equipment. Formula must be made up with either bottled, purified or boiled water. If you are traveling in developing countries you should be very careful before using formula as it may not have been stored in ideal conditions. Check the expiration date, ensure the packaging has not been opened, and when it has to be mixed with water be absolutely sure that the water is safe.
  • Sometimes you can prepare a meal yourself. Noodles are a great stand-by and most children will eat these. If you have an electric element for boiling water you could always use it to boil some two-minute noodles, which are available everywhere. Add a few pieces of fruit for dessert and another crisis has been averted with a minimum of fuss!

The month of love is upon us all...red roses, dark chocolates, and the vibrant color pink fill the store fronts, igniting "love flames" across the globe. Does your heart pound for this hallmark holiday? February is the month to proclaim your love, to connect, express and appreciate your dearest valentine. The sacred 14th of February has long been reserved for you and your sweetie to enjoy one another's company and dedicate the day for two. There is no better way to get away from the stresses of life, to turn off the fidgety cell phone, shut down the computer screen, ditch the daily planner and center in on what matters most, the one nearest and dearest to your heart.
