Top 5 ideal sweets for travelling
With weeks of summer holidays ahead for little ones, it’s time for us parents to turn our attention to how we can keep the little darlings happy on flights, train journeys and in the car. For those unfortunates who are forced to spend hours listening to complaints of feeling sick or are faced with tears about having painful, popping ears, we have a solution!

And you know what? We think they were right! So we’ve put together a list of top 5 sweets for travel sickness. You can thank us later…..
