Instant food and instant play ideas while travelling with twins:


Travelling with a baby is not an easy task as everyone thinks. Only a mom can understand it is difficult than a roller coaster ride and we’ve got to manage the ride to be peaceful. Planning each and everything in advance and having a checklist before we start to travel will make our travelling easier. Here are some easy to make food ideas that we can prepare in advance so that feeding the baby or searching for food is no more a hassle. We can avoid unhealthy food that are available outside by taking our home made food from home.


Readymade food ideas while travelling with twins:



Purees are the best:

Make some home-made fruit or veggie purees and carry it with you. Make sure you store it in a food gradable air tight container to keep it fresh for a long time. If your twins are toddlers you can pack some snacks or freshly cut fruits for them. You can go with purees to make your work easy. Take boiled potatoes or steamed apple so that you can smash it while you use. Fussy eaters will mostly demand tasty foods so you can prepare some mixed fruit and veggie purees to make them mouthwatering. Purees are easy to prepare and easy to digest as well.

Avocado Puree:

Take a ripe avocado peel out the skin, while selecting the avocado make sure its skin is black, these kind of avocados are fully ripe the dark green skin colored are usually raw, now take out the flesh and put it in the blender, transfer the puree to the container. You can do the same with chikoo and apple mixed together. Avocado and banana is another great combination loved by kids.

Mango and banana puree:

Peel out the skin and take the inner part from mango and banana, make a puree using a blender and your baby is going to be a fan of this taste. Make sure the mango is sweet enough and ripe so that you don’t need to add sugar for that extra sweetness.

Papaya and peach puree:

Look for some bright yellow colored papaya cut the fruit into two halves and remove the seeds. Now take the peach and remove the seed inside it. Put the fruit in a blender and make a puree using it. If peach is not available you can use papaya alone.

Porridge:

You can make ragi or multi grain porridge very easily if the porridge powder is ready, there are several porridge powders available in the market that are made especially for kids. You can just mix the porridge powder with hot water and then make porridge. This will be filling and healthy food for the kid.

Roti:

You can make soft roti at home using a very minimum oil. This can be stored for a day or two and it will remain fresh.

If you are travelling by car or train, it is always good to take induction stove with you so that it will be easy for you to boil milk or sterilize the food containers and milk feeding bottles. If you are traveling by flight, you can check with the airways before airticket booking itself. You can also do some basic recipes like rice or dhal for the child and feed it for the child whenever you are free. By following these type of food recipes you can make sure that the child has had hygienic food and need not worry about food allergies or any other health problems. We went to Jaipur last time and Ramada Jaipur had excellent food options for my little ones while a few did not. However, this is the case in most places so please check with your hotel before booking.

Yes we are done with food, and what next? Our kids are going to start troubling us without any reason once their stomach is full. The difficult task is to find out why are they crying for now? You know what the actual cry is for that they are feeling bored. They want to keep themselves busy all the time, they get easily bored of everything, they look out for different activities all the time. Let’s see about some activities that can keep the kids busy.

Take their favorite toy:

Every child will have a favorite toy, you can manage most of the time with that favorite doll or a car as they keep meddling with. Stacks, wooden puzzles may also help them spend a lot of time on that as their concentration is totally on that.

Don’t forget their Rhymes or story books:

Pack a separate bag of their favorite story books and rhymes book. Singing along with them or reciting stories for them will be a relaxation for them and you too.


Colors will make you feel easy:

Take a set of crayons or color pencils, drawing and coloring books ready. You can easily manage a child who always throws tantrums as coloring makes their mind to relax and this will help you and the kids a lot. They can keep themselves occupied for a long time in coloring or painting.

Limited Screen time might help in tough situations:

Prolonged screen time is actually bad for the kids, but you can restrict it for some time and make use of your tablet or mobile phone to play their favorite rhymes or stories. Make sure there is no quarrel between your twins asking for two mobile phones. Also don’t forget your charger, keep your phone fully charged so that you can stay fully charged.

Indoor games:

If you have a grown up kids you can take chess, business games or Lego blocks for the kids so that they can involve themselves in those indoor games. This will also make the boring travel time easy for them.

Outdoor play ideas:

Carry a ball, shuttle bat and cock, and ring ball so that you can help them play outside if you are planning to visit a resort. You can conduct various activities using a ball like passing the ball when the music is played and the person who has the ball while the music stops should perform a task. This is a fun filled game to play while we are in a big group. You can conduct musical chair and many other games to make sure the kids enjoy their travel.
Yes so we have discussed about the food ideas and play ideas to follow while travelling with twins and make your trip a pleasant one. Prepare a checklist and make sure you have not missed out on anything. Have medicines on hand so that you need not suffer in search of a pharmacy. Be sure you give only hygienic food to the kids and teach them about cleaning their hands and importance of sanitizing as they will easily learn things when they are thought practically and especially when they are out of the routine. This will help them follow these habits regularly even after they are back home. Take enough of clothes so that you can change them frequently, but be sure it is packed properly and there is no need to carry a huge bag with you always. The more the number of bags the more is the burden for you, you pack it properly and keep in mind where you have kept what to avoid mess in searching for things.
