Hi, we are travelling to New York next weekend.

My DS is 20 months. We are travelling from glasgow to heathrow and then heathrow to JFK so a long day of travelling!

I'm looking for find good snack ideas for the plane.ds won't eat sandwiches so I've got some brioche rolls he likes. I've also got packets of mini bread sticks and mini cheddars. He likes grapes, apples and clementines.

I know I'll have to leave any uneaten food on the plane.

How about something like babybels that also have the novelty factor of the unwrapping etc?

Planes rarely stock much milk, so if DC is a milk guzzler you at want to take some powdered with you, or visit an airside coffee shop and ask them to sell you some.

Great ideas. Thank you. I did wonder about what is served for children to drink. He is ok with water. He'll drink pretty much anything to be honest. I'm just going to take his empty cup in his bag.

At that age I usually took:

Empty beaker - fill with water after security
Box of Cheerios/ raisens/ mini bread sticks
Box of satsuma pieces/ slices cucumber/ blueberries
Nains oat biscuits ( come individually wrapped in packs of 5.Few flavour)

We usually aim to get through security at airport and all have a proper meal before flighing anyway if more than a quick European flight, as often they will then fall asleep after hour on the flight anyway. So at least if the meals terrible they have eaten something anyway. The snacks are more to pass time than actual hunger
