I just returned home from a three week trip, and as we all know, traveling with a toddler can be a challenge. I’ve posted tips and tricks for traveling before, but this time I realized one of the hardest parts of being on the road is getting fresh vegetables in my toddler’s diet.
Out of our normal routine, it was difficult to find the kinds he likes at restaurants steamed to perfection or not doused in salt and who knows what else. I also had access to a kitchen, but we were so “on-the-go” that trying to prepare his food while managing him seemed daunting.
He also decided on this trip that he looooooves chocolate milk, and was asking for it non stop.
I found the perfect solution to both problems! Enter Amazing Grass .
From their website:
Amazing Grass produces premium quality, organic Green SuperFoods for the entire family. Amazing Grass products provide essential fruit and vegetable nutrition the way Mother Nature intended…organic, raw and delicious. Amazing Grass products are gluten free, vegan and rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients. With several great flavor options to choose from, Amazing Grass makes it easier for our customers to reach their daily quota of 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables.
I bought him the Kidz Superfood Chocolate Flavor and he LOVED it. I served it to him in the morning (just add water or milk to a scoop of it!) and relaxed the rest of the day if his diet was less than stellar. No kitchen or special utensils necessary- just a cup (with a lid and straw) and water! It also come in convenient travel packets.
I love these kind of breakthroughs!
And this is how we kept him happy on our flight home:
It’s all about balance!
