3 Tips For Eating Healthy With Kids While On Vacation

Pack Healthy Snacks- The family with stable blood sugar will have a much more stable vacation.Family

Ideas include bananas, apples, grapes, trail mix (Almonds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, raisins), gluten-free cookies & pretzels, nut Butter individual packages, "baby food" pouches for the kids (the pouches filled with fruit or veggie puree), and homemade muffins.

If you are on a road trip and have room for a cooler, pack meals to include carrot and celery sticks with hummus and Applegate lunch meat and cheese.

Make Water Your Friend - It is very easy to get dehydrated while traveling, especially when you are out in the sun more than your body is used to. Keep a refillable water bottle with you, or stock your hotel refrigerator with bottles of water instead of sodas. Take it with you in your backpack, diaper bag and in your car.

Plan Ahead- Research family friendly restaurants and their menus within your road trip and at your destination. You may even want to research the local famers markets in your destination.
