While you can not count on every agent being so accommodating, I have found that I was allowed to bring my hummus or chicken salad in my carry on by letting the TSA agent know that I was on a special diet, and can't eat the food on board.

I have also had luck bringing cut up fruit apples and carrots, sliced cheese and rice crackers. Like MrsVJW, I've also brought small containers of peanut butter in my ziplock bag, with no problem. Sliced apples dipped in peanut butter are one of my favorite travel snacks.

Hi everyone!

Just an update to say that I had no trouble bringing food through the airport. I was worried because I had an apple and even a burrito (packaged) as well as mini packs of pb and prepackaged cheese. Anyway, I sailed through with no problem. The US security agent just said that I wouldn't have been allowed to bring a citrus fruit over (e.g. oranges, grapefruit, etc). I also had almonds and some junk food too ;)

Thanks again for all of your replies!

Surprised no one mentioned packets of tuna! I pick these up at my local Safeway. Some are already seasoned---check the ingredient list, obviously. I usually get the plain ones. I travel by air frequently, several times a month, and tuck one or two into my wheeled carry-on for longer flights. Have NEVER had TSA security question me. (Remember to bring a plastic fork!) I also have a tiny bottle half ounce bottle of balsamic vinaigrette that saves me when I pick up an airport salad on the go. You can never be sure of what's in packaged airport salad dressings.

Someone just told me about Go Picnic meals today (gopicnic). Wow. This is great.

Here's my question though: I do not like to buy things online, so has anyone bought their gluten-free meals at airports (or other places) on a regular basis? If so, where??

For instance, does Atlanta (airport) have them?

Thanks!! (And I really need to thank the person who told me about these.)

I'm so happy I found this! I was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease and am flying to Africa soon. I hadn't considered the fact that I won't be able to eat much from the plane... But after reading this I realize I'm going to need to plan ahead. Thank you to everyone who posted ideas. I really appreciate finding all of this! :lol:
