Q:

hi, I am travelling with my 8 months old baby and it will take the whole day ( 5am - 9pm) to reach my destination. So please suggest some food items which I can prepare or carry for my baby.
Thanks.

hi priyanka - how will u be travelling? by road or train or air? i used to carry bananas, chikoos and mash in small containers. do things like soft aloo tikki, sooji halwa that wont get spoiled in the heat. pls carry lots of boiled water - its hot! good luck!

thanks Asha, I have a flight for Delhi then we will go by train and train will take almost 7 hours and How long suji halwa or upma will be good ?

That's quite  long trip . carry tetra milk . also u can make upma or porridge and snacks stuff like biscuits and Gerber stars . also you can make parathas . If your baby likes curd you can pick it from any general store on your way .also you can carry any fruit your child likes.

n priyanka if baby seven month old so carry which food

Sweta Nagubandi

pls do carry food which is not perishable. as its summers..
the food tends to spoil faster.

priyanka - the halwa will stay good in first half so give that first. i didnt give my baby biscuits for a long time but if the multigrain healthy ones work for u - those are very filling! pls be sure to feed baby while taking off and landing - even bottle will do if not breast so the airpressure doesnt hurt baby's ears.

Khushi Upadhyay Banana, apple you can carry. Keep rice without mixing anything..it won't spoil. Boil carrot, potato and can mash and give. Carry water bottle for sure. In long journeys...small kids sleep a lot than doing anything. One flask with hot water if baby is on formula milk. Carry extra spoons.
