Meal Planning: What You Can and Can't Carry On These days, making sure your food is healthy and stored in a safe way aren't the only things you have to keep in mind when preparing a meal for your flight.
1)Liquids still have a 3-ounce limit (exceptions are only for liquid medication, breast milk, and baby formula), so drinks are out until you pass through security. If you don’t want to rely on the beverage cart onboard the airplane, you’ll need to pick up bottled beverages on the way to your gate. Buy a large bottle of water, and possibly milk or juice if you have children, to get you through the flight.
2)Food that you take through security must be wrapped or contained in some way. The exception is whole, fresh fruits; as long as they are uneaten and unpeeled, they do not need to be wrapped or in a container. Foods can be partially eaten, but they must be wrapped up before going through security.
