Trqveling with young children

I've read in several guide books that travellers often contract dysentery and am worried about travelling with a 2 year old and an 8 yr old. Has anyone travelled with young children and how have you avoided them getting sick?

I suggest that you go to travmed.com and see what it has to say about the topic. Another and better option would be to visit your local travel clinic for advice. I don't think that you should entrust your children's health much to the anecdotal evidence of strangers.

Never heard that before. I took my children when they were small and had no problem. Bottled water is widely available all over the country. Good luck.
