We've got a six hour car journey coming up with a travel sick three year old and a permanently hungry eleven month old. I'm after tips for what to feed them that they can eat in their car seats without getting too messy/crumbs everywhere. Thank you!
We're in the same boat and, though I wouldn't normally go near them for salt content, the lunchable ham and cheese stack things are good for handing behind you with minimum fuss. Babybel cheeses, sultanas, flapjack (doesn't crumble so much as disintegrate into large chunks!) Brioche rolls, dried cereals.
Mostly though, I would lower your standards re cleanliness (and I hate mess) stick a muslin under the baby and clean them up afterwards
A mixture of different cereals (shreddies, mini shredded wheat, cheerios) with different dried fruit (raisins, dates cut in quarters, dried apricots, apple, craisins) in a ziploc bag. Takes ages to eat and is interesting to pick through.
Salt n shake crisps with the salt packet removed are great.
Thanks everyone! We might also not have to 're-mortgage in order to eat at a service station. Love the cold sausages idea, not sure why so didn't think of it! Might make my own version of the dairy lunchable's. Gave them to my DC's once in an emergency and the then nine months old just looked at them in disgust!
