... taking food in your suitcases. As we only eat cerial in the mornings we were hoping to take a few boxes and some sugar with us in our suitcases instead of buying it from a supermarket over there. I was reading The Brit's Guide last night and noticed it said not to take food with you in your checked bags but I thought it was just stuff like meat, dairy and fruits that you couldn't pack and now im a bit confused! Can anyone clear this up for me? Thanks!
