‘Tis the season for back-to-school posts. But Tess doesn’t start until Sept. 6, so we’re road-tripping for the next week, to points south but otherwise unknown. No reservations, no set plans. Just the three of us in a car with an itch to meander, and an iPhone loaded with lodging apps.
Real Food Road Test:
The Spoonfed Guide to Vacation Food
And food, of course. We always bring food when we travel. But we can’t bring everything, so we navigate the food landscape, too. And that brings me to what I’m calling “Real Food Road Test: The Spoonfed Guide to Vacation Food.”
Each day over the next week, I’ll post a picture and comment on the Spoonfed Facebook page that represents some kid-and-food travel tip, observation, epiphany, whatever — proof that you can eat well on the road. While still having fun. Without sacrificing vacation treats. Without setting foot in a fast-food restaurant.
I have no idea what I’ll be posting. Which seems fitting given that we have no idea where we’re going. But I can promise that it’ll be fun. Hope you’ll follow along.
In the meantime, check out this Spoonfed giveaway for “Birke on the Farm: The Story of a Boy’s Search for Real Food.” Entries close at midnight EST Wednesday, August 29.
Spoonfed is on Facebook. You’ll find links to blog posts, news and commentary on raising food-literate kids, questions and comments from readers, voices, viewpoints, the works. Stop by, like the page, chime in, spread the word. (Thanks.)
