For long-distance travel you need to be well prepared. It doesn't matter what transport you choose, whether it be a car, a bus, or a train. Before the journey you must take certain steps to ensure that this trip won't become a nightmare for you. The travellers's age isn't that important, because a baby reacts to the stodgy snack like an adult human body.
What should you eat when going on a trip? Here are some practical tips and tricks.
Let's start with food. Instead of greasy chips or snacks prepare sandwiches. Small sandwiches should be wrapped in paper or aluminum foil. Additionally, you can pack sandwiches in a lunchbox, so that prepared food won't take too much space in your bag and won't make the rest of your luggages dirty. If sandwiches are made with your favorite ingredients, they will always be tasty. It's best to prepare sandwiches with cheese and cucumber. If you use public means of transport, the ham's smell from the sandwiches (especially in summer) is very intense and rapidly spreads through the train or bus and this isn't a pleasant experience for other travellers. During the journey, you can also eat rice cakes, corn crisps or sweets (fruit or mint-flavoared) or chewing gum. You can also take fruits, please be aware that they shouldn't be too juicy. The best fruits for travel are: bananas or apples.
The best drink is bottled water. It doesn't cause any stomach problems. It's not sweet or salty, with the result that after drinking you won't feel even more thirsty.
Despite all the security, you should take plastic or paper bags. On the road anything can happen and they may be needed. You should also take a damp cloth or a special wet wipes for cleaning hands.
