Catching a flight with your child can be great: there’s the look of awe on their face as the plane takes off and you point out the window at the amazing view, and if they’re under 2 years of age they fly for free, which is always nice. But the downside is that pretty much every aspect of plane travel now takes much longer than it used to and requires careful planning. With Sinchies reusable food pouches, you can take the pain out of flying, save yourself some money, and avoid any nasty spills.
Arriving ‘on time’ at the airport with your child often means getting there an hour earlier than you would if you were flying by yourself or with your partner. There are prams, portacots, car seats, and an extra suitcase for all the baby clothes and paraphernalia that have to be checked in. Then there’s the pre-flight feed and change of nappy, and preparation for the flight itself.
Sinchies can help you cut down your preparation time at home and make sure you get to the airport in time. And once you’re on the plane, Sinchies can prevent any awkward moments when you find yourself holding a half-eaten meal with nowhere to put it.
Healthy food for kids on plane trips
There’s usually not a lot of baby- or toddler-friendly food at airports, and on the rare occasion that there is, they’ll charge you an arm and a leg for it.
Save yourself some money by popping some food into a Sinchies reusable food pouch before you leave home for the airport. The food and drinks will be kept fresh, and you won’t be at the mercy of the airport food court menu.
You can pack simple things that are unlikely to cause a big mess, like:
Pack a treat for your child
It’s also a good idea to pack some of your child’s favourite treats for the plane trip. These don’t have to be unhealthy; they can include things like sultanas, muesli bars, fruit bars, etc.
You’ll thank yourself later when you’re thousands of metres off the ground trying to wrangle a toddler and you have a trump card up your sleeve to calm them down. The other passengers will likely thank you too!
Sinchies makes flying easy
Using Sinchies reusable food pouches for plane travel can also save you embarrassing—and not to mention annoying—spills and mishaps with half-eaten food.
If the flight attendants are occupied in other areas of the plane when your child says they’ve finished that half eaten bowl of pasta and sauce or sandwich, you may be inclined to just shove it into the top of your bag and deal with it later. We’ve all been there. But all it takes is the standard pressure change on landing, or a bout of turbulence, and that half-eaten pasta can turn into an instant crime-scene in your bag.
Sinchies are resealable, so as soon as your little one is done dining on the plane, simply reseal it and pop it back in your bag without worrying about a messy explosion.
Take the worry and mess out of plane travel with Sinchies. We can help make it convenient for you and healthy for your little one.
You’ll both be flying high in no time.
