  • Nothing with peanuts or peanut butter, just because people with these allergies could be harmed. But just about anything else that is allowed past the security check- you'll need to check on what is allowed. cut up vegetables, things that don't smell, so I wouldn't do bananas. Raisins, cookies, crackers.

  • We took the individual packages of cereal and I let her snack on dry cereal. Since it was the small boxes and never opened, it passed security. You'll need to check and see if packing your own will pass through. Just go to the website of whichever airline you're traveling on and they will have a list of the unapproved stuff.

  • When the kids & I fly I take trail mix, granola bars, sandwich crackers, fruit snacks, etc.
    Basically anything that travels easily, leaves little mess, and is filling.

  • You can buy food after the security check, and you can bring unopened containers of baby food and formula. I googled and couldn't find what I was looking for. It may be that you'll need to purchase snacks after you get through the security check. We did last December.

  • You can bring food from home. I always bring food and have traveled on many different airlines. The only thing is you can't take drinks past security. I breastfeed, so I don't know the rules on formula. I usually take an empty reusable water bottle and just fill it at a water fountain once I get past security.
