Have you noticed a connection between what your child eats and how she behaves? Every parent knows the effect of sugary treats. But energy blasts don't matter once you start walking. You might even pack an energy-intense treat for your bushwalking adventure.
Toddlers have small stomachs and burn a lot of energy, so a few snacks can easily substitute one bigger meal. Karina Savage, the paediatric dietitian from Sydney, says that snacks can provide up to 50% of children's nutrition.
Nutrient-rich, entertaining, lightweight... there are many adjectives for snacks when it comes to a day trip. The rule of thumb is that you don't introduce a new food. Especially with fussy eaters, carry only food which your child knows and eats.
We also recommend minimising packaging. Take a cute bento box only if your child won't eat from anything else. A cling wrap, a resealable plastic bag or a paper snack bag are lightweight and don't take extra space.
When you go hiking, take for your child a snack from each of the following categories: Filling, Energising, Calming. The best snacks for hiking with a toddler are:
Nutrient-rich food which slowly releases energy.
The food which gives your little one the energy boost when it is needed.
Sometimes it feels, that you will not walk any further. Your child says that (s)he has enough. That's the time for a baby hiking carrier and a calming food.
Have you noticed that there are no rice cakes, no chocolate bars and no tiny teddies? Rice cakes look healthy and practical, but low nutrients and high GI disqualify them almost instantly. Chocolate melts on hotter days. Pack your food smartly to get the most of your family hike.

We all know toddlers love to be involved in what mum and dad ‘do’. But they can also be unpredictable, and disappear in the blink of an eye. A toddler hiking carrier is one way to keep your little one safe on the farm, and lets them learn and help with daily chores.
