    Here is a similar Topic Thread with some good ideas for traveling in an plane for some hours:


    Sandwiches, wraps and vegetable salads with no mayo are easy to carry and eat on an airplane. Be sure to carry a cooler with ice packs with secure wrappings or containers to prevent leakage. You can also take some canned meat to make sandwiches or wraps.

    Fruit travels extremely well: bananas, apples, grapes, fresh berries, tangerines are particularly easy to carry and eat. Be sure to wash all fruits at home.

    Trail mix with chopped dried fruits, almonds, walnuts and cashew nuts are easy to make and carry, and a healthy and delicious snack.

    Granola bars, energy bars, crackers and pita chips are very portable. Sliced cheese is tasty on crackers but must be kept cold or eaten within four hours after removal from the refrigerator.

    Raw vegetables are tasty on salads or by themselves with a small container with a good dip or peanut butter and kept cold or consumed within four hours.

    You can make instant hot oatmeal cereal in flight if you bring a bowl and ask your flight attendant for hot water and serve with banana slices or fresh berries.

    Or you need to freeze healthy foods to take with you in the plane for three to four days a week, and hope we can give you some good ideas that can help you.
