Traveling is fun but when it comes to traveling with your family, especially with kids, it’s easy to imagine why some people start to worry. One has to factor in a ton of uncontrollable events that can pop up while the food and air in a new place takes some getting used to. Additionally, children are susceptible to travel-related illnesses such as diarrhea and motion sickness. Planning and smart packing can help you keep your family well-prepared while traveling. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Dr Chaman Ram Verma, dean of NIMS University, Jaipur, gave Zarafshan Shiraz a list of essential items to keep in mind while traveling with children. (Josh Willink)

2. Medical Kit – Whether at home or on the go, a first aid kit or kit has been one of the most useful yet underrated items in many cases.  Usually, people don't realize its importance until they face a medical emergency.  Therefore, it is a good idea to have some painkillers along with basic first aid essentials including bandages, antiseptic liquid, antibacterial creams, small scissors etc.  Don't forget an inhaler, allergy medicine and insulin, if needed/prescribed by your doctor.  .

3. Disinfectant Wipes – While traveling by road or air, you come into contact with multiple surfaces that others will handle.  Also, there are instances where there is no access to water.  An antiseptic wipe will come in handy for this.  Get one that is easy to carry and resealable.  A travel pack of disinfectant wipes will be perfect for cleaning germs from your cell phone, wallet, chair arms and any other surface.  The best part?  The wipes are truly multi-purpose: safe to use on hands, body and surfaces (glass, marble, wood, plastic, and stainless steel), even gadgets.  Antibacterial wipes have a pH that is suitable for the skin.  They are soft and gentle on the skin.  (Pexels)

4. Comfortable car seats or cushions – Depending on your child (and age), some parents are more comfortable with their child in their car seat during the flight.  Being in their car seat can help them gain a level of familiarity and even be comfortable enough to fall asleep.  (Reuters Photo)
