    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).

    I didn't really let either of my kids eat in the car till probably 2yo. I too was afraid of them choking and not being able to reach them. Now I'm just particular with what they eat because of the mess mainly(mainly no milk products as they stink no matter what you do IMO) oh how my priorities have shifted now lol

    I swore I wouldn't, but I do. I have to say, that my 13 month old, I don't often as I am scared of choking, but the other 2 I do. Every time I get the car detailed, I swear to not let them eat and 2 days later, they're eating in the car. I cannot believe the mess that eating in the car creates....

    Yes, my children eat in the car. When they were younger they never did, but at 4.5 and 2.5 they like to snack on the run.

    For me it completely depends on the age of the child. my kids were extended rear facing so i didn't give food while they were rear facing as i thought the risk of choking was too high.

    once forward facing i would give things like big bikkies and stuff that they can't really choke on now it's anything and everything in the car (DD2 is 21months and eats everything and i've never had her choke on anything touch wood) but i do understand what u mean i always worry that they might choke when you driving somewhere that you can't stop. i hate having food in the car though because DD2 is a scrucher means she was to make a mess with everything

    Of course i let her. It would be bedlam if she didn't eat when she was hungry. Why deprive her?
