Tips to Solve Food Issues While Travelling With an Infant

Last Updated on

Are you travelling with an infant and worried about what food to pack for the baby for hygiene reasons if taking outside food? Here are some tips to solve these issues when you want to travel with your little one:

1. Roasted daliya – Heat a pan and add little ghee. Add some daliya and roast it till it is light brown. Let it cool.
2. Roasted rawa – Take a pan, add little ghee and rawa. Roast it till it is light brown. Let it cool.
3. Roasted nachni flour or wheat flour – Take the pan, add some ghee and nachni flour or wheat flour. Roast it till it is light brown. Let it cool.
4. Roasted dal khichdi – Take moong dal and rice. Wash them and soak them separately overnight. Next day rinse the whole water and keep it on a clean cotton soft cloth for drying. If possible then keep it in sunlight for drying. Once it is dry, then put in the mixer grinder and make a thick powder form. Let there be small pieces of dal rice and not complete powder form.

Packing tips –

  • Small transparent zipper pouches of different sizes to store all the above-roasted food items in those pouches
  • Pack 1 small pouch of sugar and 1 small pouch of jaggery powder
  • Buy very small transparent containers and keep little salt and turmeric powder
  • Some disposable bowls, plates and spoons
  • Tissue papers
  • 1 transparent zipper for detergent powder
  • 2-3 different sizes of leak-proof containers to store cooked food while travelling around
  • 1 transparent leak-proof container for ghee
  • Small pan and spoon to cook the food for the baby or electric travel cookers
During the travel –
1. If you have an electric cooker, then add water in it, followed by the daliya or rawa or dal khichdi. Add salt and turmeric powder and boil it for 15-20 minutes. Rawa will be boiled in 10 minutes only.
2. Another variety can be sweet. Take the electric cooker and add some water. Then add daliya or rawa. Boil them. Add a little salt. Then add little ghee and jaggery powder.
3. To make Halwa – take an electric cooker and add little ghee then roasted flour. Add little water and mix it well with a spoon. It will be cooked in five-eight minutes.
If you do not have an electric cooker, then take a frying pan and add daliya or rawa or dal khichdi. Add salt and turmeric powder. Put water according to food quantity. Then give it to the hotel staff for boiling it. None of the hotels deny for baby food. I have tried it and all the hotels where I travelled have boiled it as I guided.
Once ready, pack them in the tiffin box. Keep disposable bowl, spoon and tissue papers handy.
And you are ready to enjoy your holiday without worrying about your baby’s food!
