    Please forgive me if this is a stupid question but I haven't traveled in years and never internationally.

    I'm allergic to wheat and it's very difficult to eat out. While I know Sandals & Couples will not have a problem accomodating me, I'm not sure what I can bring with me through security at the airport. I want to bring some snacks to have on both flights because it's not easy to find stuff I can eat at the airport (and certainly not on the plane). We'll be traveling anywhere from 7-10 hours on each leg of the trip so I'll probably get hungry!

    Are there any restrictions on bringing food through security? I know you can't bring drinks through, right?

      my sister goes to school in Nevis and she brings all kind of food and snacks without any problems. She mostly does cans and packages but she has had friends bring stuff like cheese and things. Hope this helps. But overall as long as its not drinks you should be fine.

      you can bring food as long as its not a liquid, gel, or cream.

      for example: jar of peanut butter= NO, peanut butter sandwich= YES. (lame, i know.)
      yogurt= NO, banana= YES. tub of frosting= NO, frosted cinnamon roll= YES.

      also you are correct, no drinks allowed thru security; but you can buy something at a gift shop or restaurant once you pass security and bring it on the plane with you.

      any liquids, gels or creams whether food or not, you are allowed ONE QUART-sized zip-loc style baggie filled with 3.4oz containers only. not 2 baggies, not 3.4oz containers with no baggie.

      specific guidelines can be found at
      TSA | Transportation Security Administration | 3-1-1 on Air Travel



      ps im not a know it all, i work for an airline :)

        Thank you - I'm so glad I don't have to starve while we are in transit!

        Abbie - I love your examples! (and I wouldn't hold it against you if you WERE a know it all!!)
