Healthy Airplane Food: DietDetective.com Annual Airline Snacking and Onboard Food Survey with Health Ratings for 2007
Cooperation from Airline: Very helpful
Health Score: (**1/2) The individually packaged snacks are portion-controlled; however, you can ask for as many as you want, and many people do.
Best Bet: If you're really hungry, try the nuts; they have protein and good fat and will satisfy you. Eat them one at a time. The animal crackers are okay, but not very nutritious. Stick with one snack.
