I am flying to the Honduras in a few months, and I need advice. I have flown and traveled a ton since being dxed and never had a problem, but I was wondering if anyone knew what the international restrictions were on bringing food into a foreign country are. I was going to pack a couple of cases of Lara bars and other pre-packaged food to hold me over when finding food will be a problem. Does anyone know?

It really depends on the regulations of the country that you are entering. Packaged food should be OK and I've never had a problem with anything sealed. It's the organic matter that isn't - produce, meat, etc. If you bring cooked food for the plane you have to dump it before clearing customs. There are usually signs and amnesty bins on the way to customs. I hope you have a great trip.
