The Munchachos at HQ got their hands on some recently published research by Emirates and Travel Weekly about travelling with children. We were so excited about what we read and we could not wait to share their findings with you.
Below are some of the highlights:
43% of 1 year olds have travelled by plane
Parents are taking their children abroad at an ever younger age. This is particularly amazing given that the parents themselves first flew at the age of 10.
20% of 5 year olds have travelled to at least 5 countries
Parents are not only taking their children travelling at a younger age, they are also exploring more with them. By the age of five, 20% of children have travelled to at least 5 countries. That is nearly one a year! Which countries have you been to? Let us know here!
3 Main Reasons why Parents Travel with Children
The top three reasons that parents travel with children are to create new memories, spend quality time together and most excitingly, to encourage their children to be more curious about the world.
HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO?
Children are not only starting to travel at a younger age, they are also exploring the world at younger age. Their parents are showing them the world to create new memories, spend quality time together most excitingly, to make them more curious about the world.
This is exactly what we are working towards here at Munchachos. Our specially created munchables and funtastic app are designed to perpetuate children’s curiosity about the world and to take you on a mini adventure every single day!
