Kids' Staple

My super big tip of the day is . . . peanut butter.  Never travel to Europe with kids without a jar (or one of those cool tubes) of peanut butter.  I speak from experience when I say that a child under 12 can subsist for an entire vacation on peanut butter sandwiches and noodles with butter.  Got a picky eater?  You don’t think they’ll be thrilled to try bratwurst, proscuitto, quiche or croque monsieur?  Peanut butter will save you, but you won't find Skippy or Jif in many European grocery stores, so bring it from home.  (No need to bring jelly or jam.  That's easy to buy in Europe or swipe from your hotel breakfast buffet.)

Looks Like Skippy no longer makes Skippy Squeez' It tubes of peanut butter.  It's not even available on Amazon.  Too bad - it was very convenient for travel.  But Skippy Peanut Butter In-a-Cup or Jif® To Go snack sizes are practical too.
