You can (and definitely want to) take food with you. You could get trapped in the airport, or (heaven forbid) on the runway for hours. Not likely, but it has happened before.

I've never had any problems bringing food or drink onto the airplane. The "liquid" restrictions only apply to passing through the security check. You can buy drinks (milk, juice, soda, etc.) and food to take on board once you pass the screening area.

Can you buy milk? We take chocolate milk for our 3yo and they let us through security with it. I explain to them that she would have a fit if she doesn't have it. Twice they checked with the supervisor and it was OK. Also juice is specifically allowed in the new rules. Just don't take too much.

You can buy white milk in my home airport (Raleigh-Durham). I just go to one of the places that serve meals - preferably, one that has muffins and the like. They always seem have bottled milk. It is 2%, which is lower in fat than you would normally give an infant, but good enough for a trip.

I have no idea about chocolate milk - I never tried to buy that.

Oh but that is the kind you have to drink cold. We take the hershey's milk that can last us all day.

You can bring the Nesquick chocolate powder and buy the milk at the airport then mix it there.

Hope this is not too late for your trip, I have been away and did not keep up with this post - sorry for delay in answering you question. As long as your carry-on luggage is within the air carriers requirements you should not have any trouble carrying dry food.

You know what. What do you want us to do? Hit our children. I will tell you a story. I have a 2 year old. If you ever had a 2 year old you would understand what a PAIN IN THE BEHIND it can be. And to fly with one.!!OMG!
I got so frustrated at my son that I grabed his arm hard and almost threw him down on the seat and threaten him that I would threw him off the plane! Am I proud over it. NO! I almost cried! And it doesn't help that the plane is delayed for whatever reason and all of us is stuck on the plane while waiting for takeoff. You think it is misery for you? Count your lucky stars buddy that you are not the parent.
