I just picked DD1 up from school with one of her friends and drove them to dance classes. They literally run from the classroom to the dance class to make it on time. If they didn't eat in the car they'd not be able to do the class. Not sure what else we're supposed to do if you don't have eating in the car. If we eat once we get to dance class they have all of about 90 seconds to have afternoon tea and get indigestion.
I am interested to know what those who don't allow eating in the car would do? Genuine question. I hate the mess on Monday afternoon from that one car ride but can't see any other way (or they don't eat).
