    Mangoes and Avocadoes on the airplane

    This might be a totally daft question, but what's the best way to bring a mango and avocado on board with your baby? I assume you don't slice it up until you actually want it on the flight, right? But how do you slice it up since you cannot bring on a sharp knife etc...

    Thanks!

    One idea is that you could peel the mango skin off and then cut it on board with a plastic knife..

    Squeeze some lemon on it, surely it won't turn brown.

    Hi
    I kept the avocado whole with skin off to preserve it from going brown, then peeled it with my fingernails and took a spoon to feed. My daughter wouldn't eat it with lemon juice either.
    Mango is a little more tricky! Would suggest cutting it into 2 halves and scoring through with knife before travelling.
    Nothing beats the banana for me when travelling!
