Ready, set, go everywhere!
Make your plan to stay healthy on vacation.
A little extra planning will take you far
Staying healthy with cystic fibrosis (CF) is a challenge no matter what, but it can be even more difficult to stay on track when you’re distracted by the excitement and stress of traveling.
As you embark on your next vacation, keep both your and your family’s nutritional needs in check. Here are some quick tips that can help you travel well wherever you go:
Plan ahead – Anticipate situations where proper nutrition may not be available and plan to bring meals and snacks that can be eaten on-the-go.
Stock up on snacks – Shop with purpose and buy high-calorie, easily accessible snacks like trail mix, dried fruit, granola bars, cheese and cracker packs, and pretzels. Keep perishable items, such as cheese sticks, hummus, cottage cheese, and yogurt, cool with an insulated lunch bag or cooler.
Pack your vitamins – Bring your vitamins with you and set reminders in your phone to take them daily.
Planning and packing meals ahead of your vacation
It may seem like a bit of a hassle, but a little extra effort could help make the most of your vacation.
