Those little pouches of fruit/veg puree?


I was racking my brain for snacks that would be decently healthy and easy to carry and eat. I thought of those but I'm not sure if they "count" as a liquid. Has anyone successfully flown with these in their carryon?

I haven't, but I think it's 3.8oz for liquids so if it's under that, you should be good.

You can call TSA and ask over the phone. I had this problem when trying to fly with fresh fish and they were pretty helpful

Bbut then would it have to fit in the quart size zip lock baggie I wonder?

If it's a gel, liquid, or paste, the container must be 3 ounces or less, and all such containers must fit into a 1-quart ZipLoc bag. Mothers with babies can get around this with baby formula, but they must be screened separately.

Try to pack most of them in your checked bags. I have been able to bring them on a plane before, but just a couple of them. I also brought the little mini Gerber juice bottle.

I bet you can, I stopped pulling out hand sanitizer, hair gel, and toothpaste last year.  I'd just leave it in my carry-on and see if the screeners pulled it out, and so far they haven't.  I even made it through with a bottle of barbecue sauce a couple of weeks ago when I was in Kansas City without taking it out of my bag, and nobody said anything.

EACH ticketed passenger gets a quart sized bag. Put yor baby's supplies in his own quart sized bag, you should be fine.
