I am diabetic, a mother and growing up I was a Brownie and a Guide so I am well prepared in always carrying a snack. When travelling, that snack needs to be something that is not squishy so it will be well behaved in my handbag.

Lets be honest, unless you are lucky to be in the more expensive seats, food can be an issue while travelling. The meals are well-thought out due to the restricted conditions but they are never substantial enough to last you through your entire commute and not very Temple friendly and certainly not fresh.

Carrying snacks is partly to do with hunger, partly to do with keeping a good blood sugar balance as well as a treat for killing boredom. When my children were little, the best flights were the ones where I had something to pull out every half hour or so, sometimes being games and puzzles, but most sought-after, something to eat. Tips to keeping your temple happy and healthy during long flights are: staying hydrated, move around to get your oxygen and blood circulating and choosing to not pollute your temple with unhealthy snacks to helps to minimize jet lag.
