In my last post with 6 tips for hiking with kids (which I hope was very useful for you), I promised you to be more detailed on what snacks are good to pack for a hiking trip. So today I´m bringing you an extended guide focusing on what proved well for us in terms of food.
First, I would like to repeat my advice from last time, that you bring along rather more snacks than less and take into consideration that you prepare what your kids like. So what specifically proved well for us?
We use a Czech product “Healthy bottle“* – they have a wide selection of original designs (no Hello Kitty, Cars, etc :)), But what is important, they are made of special material developed for medical purposes. Thanks to it there is no odour and mould in the bottle even if it is used frequently, as it is with other plastic bottles.
It may seem like a lot of food, but from my own experience, I know that children usually crave snacks first at the beginning of the hike (even though they had eaten at home), and supplies can dwindle alarmingly fast. And as I also wrote in my post “5 tips for long car rides with kids“: better overpack than having your children nervous and yelling from starving. Moreover, when additional difficulties such as sore feet and fatigue can happen.
It is also good not to pack everything in one backpack, but put some snacks (like candies or fruit sauces) in your children´s backpacks.
I hope my list has been helpful for you and if you have any other tips what snacks to pack, let me know in the comments bellow.

And of course, I look forward to reading all your comments.
