However, there are some guidelines that you should follow when you bring these foods.
Here are some tips on how you can bring food to eat on an airplane:
- Choice of foods. You should choose the type of foods that you can bring in the airplane. Consider the length of your trip. For short travels, it might be enough if you bring a few snacks. If the trip is long, you might want to bring filling foods that will not leave you hungry. Also, remember to choose foods that are easy to eat in the airplane. Some of the foods that you can take with you are crackers, cookies or biscuits, energy bars, cheese, boiled and cut vegetables, fruits, nuts or hard boiled eggs. A combination of these foods can help fill your stomach. It will be easier to go through security search if you put your food inside see through containers.
- Drinks. Of course, you wouldn’t want to eat all the food that you have brought if you do not have drinks to go with them. You might not be able to bring in the drinks that you have through the security checkpoint. What you can do is go through the security check without your drinks. After the checkpoint, you can find some vending machines or stalls that sell water. They may be sold at expensive prices so be ready to have extra money handy. For long trips, it is advisable to buy a big bottle of water. Avoid buying drinks, such as coffee or soda as these can contribute to faster dehydration. If you want to drink juice, just bring a small packet of powdered juice that you can mix with your water.
- Other things to bring. If you have packets of condiments, such as salt, pepper and some spices, you can pack them in a zip lock container and bring them with you. Another thing that you should not forget to bring is moist wipes. There may be some moist wipes or tissue on the airplane but you have to bring yours just in case there aren’t any. This will make it easier for you to clean your hands before and after you eat.
These are some of the tips that you can use if you want to bring your own food into the airplane. If you follow these simple tips, you will surely not go hungry during the trip. You will also have the chance to eat the food that you love. Just remember to check the airline rules and procedures regarding bringing in foods.
