    I wish I could enforce that rule. I'm pretty busy (moreso disorganized lol) so I'm often left with little choice

    We just purcased a new car when dd was 10mths old and i swore i'd never be a parent who lets their kids eat in the car and make a mess, squish crumbs into the interior, finding mouldy scraps of apples under the seats and not to mention the smell of food in my new car and it's also dangerous.
    But here i am 8mths down the track and to be honest it's just too darn convienient to slip in a morning tea bikkie and piece of fruit while on the run! When she's starving and we have been out all day and i pop into mcdonald's drive thru...it's so easy to keep her quiet and happy a little longer by handing her a few chips for our way home lol Our baby seat has a drink holder so she drinks too lol

    I do realise it is a risk - she could choke and i wouldnt be able to get to her aid as fast as i need to.
    We could be involved in a minor car accident that may cause her to choke. At least i am aware that she is eating and exactly what she is eating. I do keep an eye on her when she's eating - a quick head check at the lights. I know this isnt enough and its probably not the best parenting on my part. I imagine it would be harder having multiple kids eating in the car - i dont know if i could do that and keep my mind on driving too. I will only allow her to eat getting from a-b type thing.
    On long trips however, it's deffinately a no no . We are usually organised for trips and she is fed before we leave and we will stop to eat if we need to.

    Depends on the distance. We drive roughly three hours for my neurologist appointment, and she gets bored.

    A few bananas, sandwiches and Aldi cookies work wonders.

    I seriously think you could survive for a few days in my car eating the food the kids have dropped!!

    I don't really like doing it, but I hate the whining and screaming more. I mainly gve them dry cereal/cruskits etc - thing that don't tend to go mouldy or smelly or stain. But they do make a lot of mess.

    We always said we wouldn't let them more because of the mess but once our first one hit that age it didn't bother us.

    Thanks in advance. I told him I'd ask the BH Oracle for the answers.
    look each to their own> I would prefer a car without bits of random toast and crumbs everywhere but DS went through such a slow stage of eating his breakfast he was often eating toast on the way to daycare. He is often so ravenous on the way home at night he eats a snack on the way home to avoid him getting psycho. And sometimes it is purely to shut him up I don't think it is dangerous.
