Loved the tips we shared in Installment #1 of Travel Tips? Then today’s your lucky day!! Here’s installment #2 –
You’re bound to get hungry on a flight – especially if you’re going international. If your on a 14 hr flight sometimes snacks won’t suffice – thankfully there are a couple options for you to make sure you have an allergy safe meal aboard.
Fruit Platter: Upon special request many airlines offer a fruit platter. The fruit platter is usually great for people with food allergies because rather than the curries, noodles, and pastas it’s pretty clear what allergens the plate contains or may contain. The only thing to note about the platter is you must put in a special request before your flight otherwise they might not have it on board!
Cup A Noodles / Chicken Bullion Soup: For Nut-Allergic people like me these “to-go” soups/pastas are great options! All you have to do is ask a flight attendant to bring you a cup of hot water, pour it into your to-go noodles cup, and you’re ready to enjoy a nice, hot and filling meal on the flight!
Bread! Whether the flight attendants bring out bread in a basket or they give you a roll with your meal, bread is one of the most common food items you get on the flight! Though one should always read the label to make sure you are safe and comfortable, it’s good to know that the bread is almost always safe. Bread for flights is mass produced and airlines rarely treat their passengers to a “lap of luxury” type meal with fancy nut breads – those are more expensive. So if they label checks out well on these breads, your most likely safe to enjoy them!
