We’ve all been there at some point, right? You’re out and about with the kids and you either didn’t bring enough food with you, or are out longer than expected. Sometimes a vending machine is all that’s available, and purchasing something to curb their hunger is a better option than having them complain until you make it home. Thankfully, more and more machines are being stocked with healthier alternatives, and in some locations there are vending machines dedicated to only healthy snacks (woohoo!).

And when it comes to drinks when you’re out and about or travelling, always go with water to keep you all hydrated. A small real-fruit juice would be ok, but be aware of how much sugar is in them (and most vending machine juices are not going to be real juice!). As a parent it goes without saying that you probably want to avoid dramatic spikes in the kids’ blood sugar levels from giving them sugary treats right before jumping on a long distance flight. Your fellow passengers will thank you too!
I’d be very interested to know what healthy options you’ve found in vending machines in your travels. Where were they and what was the range like?
