When you’re planning to travel with toddlers, whether by plane, car or public transport, taking along the right products can make your trip fun and easy.

You might be planning your first family holiday, a road trip to visit friends or a long car journey. Here are some ideas for products that have you and your toddler in mind.

They can help to transform your trip by making it more comfortable and easy for you to get from A to B.

1. Grab some delicious snacks for on-the-go

Whether you’re running errands or packing for a road trip with your toddler, pack some delicious, toddler-friendly snacks into the nappy bag.

Kiddylicious Strawberry Puffs are a yummy choice for babies from around 7 months +.

These Fruity Puffs are easy to grasp and safe for babies to self-feed, with a hint of real fruit and no artificial flavourings or colourings.

There are three delicious flavours to choose from and they’re perfect for snacking on the go.

One TMB community member said, “My 1 year old absolutely loved these strawberry puffs a brilliant finger food and snack while you are out and about”.

The alpha is extra safe, utilising a 5-point safety harness and chest clip with a removeable padded liner for newborns. While it’s super lightweight and easy to install, it’s also extremely sturdy and durable, too.
