Howdy,
I got 100 cal packages of nuts & fiber bars. Should I take them out of their sealed wrappers and put in clear small zippo bags. I also got 80 cal prepackaged string cheese & fresh green beans.

The cheese wrapper is clear so it should not be a problem. I have googled this and went to gov website but couldn't get good guidance.
Thanks,

I wouldn't think you would need to remove the nuts, etc. from their original packaging. In fact, if something was in home-made baggie packaging, I would think it might be more suspicious. Call your airport and ask about it if you are concerned.

I thought it was liquids and gels they were worried about, not food.
Accourding to the TSA website:

http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/assistant/editorial_1667.shtm

All food must go through the X-ray machine. Do NOT bring food to the security checkpoint unwrapped, as shown in the image on the right.

Food must be wrapped or in a container. Unpeeled natural foods like fruit are okay, but half-eaten fruits must be wrapped.

Never had an issue taking food on a plane. As long as you don't have fresh fruits and veggies and are entering another country you should be fine. I take snack foods on planes whenever I fly!

Yep - ditto to everyone else. I fly a LOT and I haven't ever had trouble with food on any airlines - as long as it's not something packaged in water.

Yep - you don't have to remove anything from packages. Liquids are the only restricted thing (and produce if you're going between countries).

Thanks. I will pick up lettuce salad and add my own nuts & cheese. Empty water bottle and fill it up at same place I get salad. Lemon juice packet for dressing & dt coke with SB choc fiber bar. I tried dried green beans in the store. 120 cal for 1/2 cp. I could eat 2 cups of them without registering I did that. So I opted for fresh and going in zippo snack bags.

OT, but I read this as "Snakes on a Plane", and had a vision of Samuel L. Jackson...

"Enough is enough! I have had it with the terrible snacks on this terrible plane! " (cleaned-up version)

LOL what a nice chuckle. :dizzy:

I enjoy how I am not finished finding ways to stay POP. I have travelled many times while losing but this time, after experimenting with my lunch choices in anticipation of our big Western trip, I said, I don't want high sodium grilled chicken if I can bring my LF string cheese and 100 cal nuts. As a treat, I will have a SB fiber bar with dt coke. I don't want the fiber bars in our home but for traveling, it will definitely feel like a treat.

I also have had capricious security checks, so I am a bit nervous about bringing my snacks.

So on the dubbed TBS version, the line was "I have had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this monday-to-friday plane".

Which of course I also instantly replaced with snacks. Monkey fighting snacks! Like Bananas!

Karen925, why thank you.

[Snack on, sistah. Healthily, of course.]

Thank you also, OodlesofNoodles.

I need to find a Before picture & do one of those posts that everyone does, with the Before/After. [Adds it to her "To Do" List.]

I used to work in airport screening...in Canada, but the rules aren't that different, especially in regards to liquids, creams, gels and aerosols. I never took snacks from anybody, but just make sure that any liquids are 100 mL or less, and can collectively fit in a 1 L bag. I think someone else mentioned it in in this thread -- the TSA website is probably your best bet.

Ookpik,
Its great to see someone who knew the rules for snacks in Canada! I was just about to ask. I've never attempted to bring snacks with me on a flight, but with one coming up in two weeks and not wanting to eat their foods it seems like a good idea :)
