    Recommendations needed for family's 1st trip to Aruba

    I am so excited that we will be going to Aruba in July with my 3 kids, ages 7,5, and 9 months. We are staying at the surf club and will have a full kitchen (thank goodness.) I have been studying all of your posts.
    I would definitely love some recommendations from others that have traveled with young children.
    I am trying decide on how much to bring. I need formula, diapers, and wipes. I figured I would pack these thing just in case Lings does not have the one we need.
    I am also planning on bringing breakfast foods, snacks, juice boxes, mac and cheese, and apple sauce. I am not sure about the cold items. My sons like cream cheese on rolls. Can I find that at Lings? I also need Lactose free milk. I did email Lings but did not get a response.
    I also though about making chicken cutlets, freezing them and packing them for the kids. I would hate to spend big $$$ on meals for the kids that they don't eat. Has anyone ever brought frozen veggies down with them?

    Thank you for your help!

    Welcome to the forum.

    A lot of good info on packing and bringing food to Aruba. I always try to remind folks to just check with your airline as to weight limitations and extra fees on baggage. Also, if you take a cooler full of food, check as to any special limitations they may have on that as well. Better to be safe and prepared than an unexpected surprise at the airport.
