Are you more lenient about unhealthy food options when you travel or do you insist on the same healthy choices you have at home?

My daughter loves to order pasta when we are out, because white pasta is a treat for her.

We are usually more lenient when we are out and about, although we try to steer them towards the more healthy options.

I try to stick to the healthy items that I am used to at home. I might try a new dessert while on vacation, but I will follow that up with sometime at the hotel gym or pool.

Umm when we are traveling my kids usually have the same types of food they have at home.

Yes, we are more lenient when we travel. If we weren't, I think we'd go completely insane. And by 'we', I mean 'me.' LOL

 i think it depends - when we are driving is about the only time we will go to fast food joints - but when we are visiting family etc I do try and stick to the same eating habits i would at home

We try to choose more healthy options but it is vacation and we don't go often so we are more lenient I would say. 

My kids love pasta too!

We have been in the past, but since "Food Inc" we will be more aware of where we're stopping, and what we eat.

I generally pack so much snack food that we rarely have to stop anyway. But there will be NO more fast food.
