7 Rules for Feeding Your Kids on the Road and at the Campground

Let me start by saying that there has been a whole lot of trial and error in the road food department over the last 5 years. We took our first 12-hour road trip when the twins were 3 months old.

I will admit that the smaller part of me was either chuckling or rolling my eyes the entire time I read it. This article is definitely not for those who have little tykes running around while they are preparing camp food. And that’s okay. Not all articles have to be. But kids or no kids, you cannot call a recipe simple if the first step is shelling fava... Read More
