The last 2 weeks have been all about traveling.

  • 2.5 days in Sankt Englmar.
  • 3.5 days in Zurich.
  • And in between, we had to spend a day out in the city.

I missed making hot meals for Avni, but this is how I made sure Avni ate something during the long sunny warm days out.

For both the train journeys from home, I brought warm ragi porridge with nut butter & breastmilk.

On the first trip, I had access to my friend's kitchen but we didn't have much time since we spent most of our time outdoors.

What Avni ate:

  • Banana, banana with almond butter.
  • Instant oats with hot water + breastmilk + almond butter.
  • Avocado - took two with me from home.
  • Watermelon - my friend had them at her place.
  • Pineapple - it was easy to order in a restaurant.
  • Red lentil pasta (boiled it in my friend's place) + Avocado.
  • Mango soy yogurt (we carried it with us, we had a fridge at our place).
  • Potato (boiled in my friend's kitchen) + olive oil (I carried a small bottle with me) + spices (carried curry powder + black pepper with me).

On the Zurich trip, a typical touristy one, we stayed at a hotel and didn't have access to a kitchen or even a kettle and spent most of the day and evening out.

What Avni ate:

  • Banana & almond butter (carried almond butter with me).
  • Store-bought food bottles (vegetable purées) + olive oil.
  • Mango yogurt.
  • Fresh blueberries bought at the store for snacking.
  • Packaged fruit purées for snacks on the go.
  • Blueberry flavored yogurt-alternative (made with tofu)- found it at a vegan restaurant.
  • Avocado - at a restaurant.

And most importantly, she breastfed every 1-1.5 hours, no matter where we were. So she was well-hydrated throughout the entire trip.

Also, I made sure to bring her meal bowls, snack bowls & boxes, spoons & water bottles.
