Bring food on the plane? Restrictions?

I've been all over the TSA website, and I can't find anything about bringing food on to the plane. I thought I had read somewhere that you can't bring pies or jellies on board. We are leaving at 10:41 am and arriving at 2:15pm (with an hour time change going east). I'm sure my kids are going to get hungry and I don't want to pay $3 for a bag of M&Ms. Does anyone know if there are certain things you can't bring on board? TIA!!!

I'm pretty sure you'll be safe with everything as long as you stay away from liquids. I would stay away from jellies too.

When we flew back in Dec. I had some of those Jell-o cups for my son and I had to get rid of those. But I did have cereal bars and crackers and dried fruit that they said was fine. it was all in the original containers and they hadn't been opened yet so they were fine with that. But I wouldn't try to bring pie or jellies on the aircraft.

You can bring anything that isn't a liquid or liquid like (puddings, jellos, drinks, yogurt). Sandwiches, chips etc are fine. Just not anything to keep them cool. You can also take anything aboard that you purchase after the security checkpoint.

Only exception to the "no gels or liquids" rule is if they are 3 ounces or less or baby food.

Each passenger can carry one one-quart clear zip bag to carry liquids and gels. Each container has to be 3.1 oz. or less, and the zip bag has to go through the security checkpoint in an X-ray scanner tub (not left in a carry-on bag). So... pack some single-serving packets of jelly in the zip bag along with your travel-size toothpaste, liquid cosmetics, etc. Carry the bread separately.

The TSA isn't going to try to list every liquid or gel item that's acceptable. It doesn't matter whether it's food, cosmetics, or Elmer's Glue.... as long as it's a liquid or gel, the rules will still apply.

Pie fillings, of course, tend to be semi-liquid or gel, and are probably going to add up to more than 3.1 oz. (or fit into a one-quart bag). Even McDonald's apple pies can be an issue - is the filling more than 3.1 oz? Regardless, it has to be in the one-quart bag.

Since made-up PB&J sandwiches can show up on the scanner as a liquid/gel, those have been problems for some travelers. Since TSA can't be sure whether there's less than 3 oz. of PB or J on the sandwich, they may toss them because they can't be sure. So, if you want your own PB&J, pack the PB and the J as single-serving packets (or in 3 oz. containers), pack the bread separately, and make up the sandwiches after you board. (The same is true for items like mayo and mustard - if you want them for your sandwiches, do the single-serving packet thing.)

What about the "no food" thing? It's probably etched in our memories from the days right after 9/11. The initial security clamp-down meant that food and beverage service was suspended on the airlines and beyond the screening check-points until better security screening procedures for airport personnel could be put in place. Once all that was taken care of, food service returned to the terminals and planes. Of course, the airlines used this as an excuse to cut back on food and beverage services on the planes (business was really rough, with a big drop in air travel)....

After the shoe bomber incident, the TSA added the no liquids/gels rules, and since a lot of foods and beverages fit into the category of liquid/gel, they have been affected by the liquid/gel rules.

Simple rule of thumb: if it's pourable, spreadable, or smearable ... it has to go in the 3-1-1 bag.

As for keeping kids happy ... get some granola bars. There's lots of flavors and varieties to choose from.

Snack-packs of "cheese and crackers" or "peanutbutter and crackers" would have to go into the 3-1-1 bags ... but those little packages have easily got less than 3 oz of cheese/etc in them.

Remember, too: your KIDS each get a 3-1-1 bag, if they've got their own seat and carry-on bags. So you can pack a half-dozen granola bars or cheese-n-crackers packages into each of their 3-1-1 bags. Especially handy if they're old enough to know, and abide by, "that's IT for snacks at both airports and on the plane".

And if you don't mind them eating junk food? A tube of Pringles chips ... a box of Cheeze-its ... a bag of Goldfish crackers ... those're all bone-dry foods.

Drinks, however, you're out of luck; you'll have to buy something past security.

HOWEVER ... don't despair. I know Logan Airport, in Boston, was very smart about this: they have a strictly-enforced "street pricing" rule. Nothing sold AFTER the security checkpoint can be sold for higher than it is charged somewhere BEFORE the checkpoint, within 15 miles of the airport IIRC. So, no 12oz bottles of water being sold for $8, no $4 candy bars, no $10 bags of chips.

Granted, you DO end up paying high-end-convenience-store prices, rather than grocery store prices. But at least it's not outight price-gouging ...

We brought Trail mix, and m&ms from home and they were fine. Bought some chips after security and they were fine as well. As long as u get a drink on the plane u should be fine.

i know how it is getting hungry during the flight. luckily, the flight from new orleans isn't that long to disney. I normally have a big breakfast and bring some juice for the flight and i'm fine til we land.

Thanks everyone. I wanted to bring PB and J . I wasn't sure if I was able to with the jelly. If I decide to, I will pack everything seperately.

I would avoid jelllies and anything liquidy (like gogurt or something like that), but otherwise you should be fine. I've always packed crackers, etc and had no problems at all!

We had to get rid of DS's peanut butter cups, but my peanut butter crackers were ok to go. As other's said, I'd stick with granola bars, and crunchy snacks.

Hmm. wouldn't have thought that peanut butter cups would get pulled. I guess it's better to stick with peanut M&Ms then. I just came back from WDW. I had fudge in my carry on, and also got a sandwich from Main Street Bakery. I put the mayo packets in the qt size bag and had it go through separately. I think the grocery store now sells small packets of peanut butter. Expensive, but there is a use for this sometimes. I had thought about getting the apple slices and caramel that they sell at the foodcourts but didn't. But I would have separated the caramel (or the ranch dressing that comes with celery/carrot sticks) if I decided to bring those on the plane.
