Bringing snacks and juice onboard

We have cruised with Disney before but at the time our then 3 year old daughter was still on a liquid diet, on this cruise in August she will be 6 and can now tolerate solid food (she has cerebral palsy). I have seen people talk on here about taking snacks onboard but have then read that certain items aren't allowed - we are sailing from Barcelona in case that makes a difference. Basically I will need to bring certain dry foods for her such as crackers, breadsticks, puffed crisps (chips) or cookies along with small cartons of orange juice that we use to mix some of her liquid feed into through the day/night. None of these items will be open or homemade. Just normal shop bought/prescription foods. Do these need to be packed into my luggage? Or do I need to bring them on as hang luggage? I won't need access to them on the first day so am happy to wait for them to show up in our cabin later (I also don't really want to have to drag a whole bag of snacks around with me) but I obviously don't want to do it wrong either. I think a lot of the questions on here have probably pertained to alcohol and roll-along coolers no longer being allowed, whereas these are snacks/juice (she eats like a baby that is being weaned) - any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The food can be in your checked baggage when boarding the ship although breakable items could well, break.

The liquids will need to be in your carry on when boarding the ship.

Unless you need a special kind of orange juice, they have it on the ship. One less thing you might have to carry on.

As long as the snacks and juice are in factory sealed containers and not put into ziplock baggies or home made, you can bring as much as you want onboard. We are in a similar boat (pardon the pun) as my DD is diabetic and we bring prepackaged snacks and juice boxes to take on excursions.
