Orange Bliss Balls Recipe + Travel Snacks For Kids

Orange Bliss Balls

We’ve just returned from a blissful 48 hours on Hamilton Island, it feels like a dream, but thankfully I took HEAPS of photos and videos so I’ll get to re-live the joy over and over again. In the meantime, these are the travel snacks we took for the kids, plus an Orange Bliss Balls Recipe.

The flight from Melbourne to Hamilton Island was 3 hours, so we only needed a snack to see us through from our airport breakfast to lunch on the island.

We took:

  • Chopped Cucumber
  • Grapes
  • Ginger Biscuits
  • Nut Snacks
  • Orange Bliss Balls
