Flying with easyjet to CDG

Hiya just wondering if anyone knows can you take food in your suitcase?

I've read on here loads of people take food with them to Disneyland. But think most are travelling via Eurostar.

We are hoping to take crisps, squash, biscuits, cereal bars, cupa soups, pot noodles, chocolate, tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate etc.

We're are flying with easyjet. Will these items be ok in our suitcases?

TIA

As long as any liquids are in hold baggage and within the weight limit, you will be fine.

Yes they will be fine. We did exactly the same on our December trip.

Just a point but if you are coming home the gates for easyjet are in quite a small part of CDG so there was oly a Relay shop and a small cafe. The cafe didn't have much food left and the Relay shop closed around 9pm. We managed to get some tea but there wasn't a lot of choice. We said if we didn't it again we would make sure we had some snacks in our hand luggage.

Hope you have a fab trip.

Xxx

Yes, we positively stuff our cases with snacks if we're on a budget trip anywhere, but particularly DLP, never had a problem taking food with Easyjet.

no one cares what you carry in your checked bag unless it violates some safety rule ie. combustible liquids for example

Hi I have found some super concentrated juice called go splash the bottle is only 75ml but makes 20 glasses of juice , you get black currant and orange they are sugar free and my kids love them , we plan to fill water bottles at breakfast then add some juice to save money on drinks in the parks .

They are also really we'll sealed and you can take them in hand luggage as they are less than 100 ml .

We flew easyjet last year and has crisps snacks etc in case there was no problem except crushed crisps .

Hi

When I used to take my mother abroad for a week I used to pack a separate rucksack with travel kettle, mugs, tea & coffee etc, snacks, and also bubble wrapped a couple of bottles of the squash that she liked. Then we shared 2 suitcases between 3 of us so we still only had one hold luggage each. That way if the squash leaked it wouldn't spoil our clothes. The tesco concentrated squash bottles are not very big.

We filled one small bottle with neat squash when we went out and she added it to a second small bottle of water as needed so it lasted all day.

If the drinking water fountains in the parks are working they are perfectly safe to use and fill bottles or make up squash in kids beakers. In very cold weather they may be turned off.

Bottled water is cheaper in Chessy station and in the petrol station shop near hotel Santa Fe.

Those very small highly concentrated bottles sound a good idea!

All right, I'll bite - what is "squash"? I take it that it's some type of drink, and not the vegetable (I was picturing people packing summer or acorn squash in their suitcase)?

Thanks caspdex. Thought it had to be something like that. I haven't been to Great Britain in about ten years but was running around seeing things like a crazy person so probably never noticed it. I didn't really think that people were bringing vegetables with them lol.
