5 TSA-Approved Snacks for Your Next Flight

Contrary to popular belief, you are allowed to bring food from outside of your local airport onto the plane. Most snacks have been deemed okay to fly; you can bring sandwiches, small containers of hummus, pizza, pasta, almonds, and even live lobsters in your carry-on so long as they are carried in a sealed leak-proof container. If you’ve got a long flight coming up, skip the fast food line and pack one of these five TSA-approved snacks.

  • Sliced up fruit. A fruit salad packed with watermelon chunks, sliced strawberries, and blueberries doesn’t just taste great—it can also help keep you hydrated while you fly!
  • Roasted edamame. Edamame beans have tons of filling proteins to keep you awake and alert if you have work to do on the plane. Try roasting your edamame with a flavored oil for a spicy kick.
  • Roasted seaweed. Known in Japanese as “nori,” roasted seaweed contains plenty of Vitamin B12, which is used to help support brain functioning. It’s also tasty and naturally low in calories!
  • Beef jerky. Your favorite road trip snack is also ideal for the airport because it’s filling, dry, and can be tossed in your carry-on. Beef jerky now comes in a wide variety of flavors—so don’t be afraid to pick up a few new choices to try at the airport.
  • Dark chocolate. Craving something sweet? Dark chocolate contains antioxidants that can keep your skin looking bright—even for a 6AM flight!
