Travelling with Infant: 15 Nutritious Baby Food Recipes






While travelling with an infant does require some planning, it is not so difficult. This holds true even when it comes to baby food recipes. There are a few tips that we should bear in mind while dealing with infant food recipes:



A few days before your travel, begin serving the food at room temperature to the child. This way, you will not have to worry about serving hot food to her.

Many baby food recipe needs addition of milk. While you can always carry expressed breast milk or even a bottle of cow’s milk, carrying formula is less messy. Just keep the powder in a bottle and mix it with the required quantity of water when required.

You can carry most pureed infant food in the form of frozen cubes. Carry them either in mini coolers or in freezer bags. These frozen cubes usually stay as such for around six to seven hours. You can transfer it into refrigerators, which most hotels provide in the rooms. You can use unthawed frozen infant food for up to five days.

While thawing, if no other means are available, just transfer them into a bowl and keep it over hot water. Always remember not to re-use the food once thawed.

Here are some easy infant food recipes that are sure to help you.
