What types of snacks are recommended for the international programs?
Food that is canned, sealed, or packaged is usually allowed through customs, but during the program snacks are just as easy to purchase in each country. No fresh produce, meat, plants, or dairy products will be allowed through customs, and even packaged foods may need to be declared. If you plan to bring food items home, remember to keep receipts for items you purchase overseas to show customs when re-entering the United States. Without receipts, U.S. Customs agents may assess additional duty charges and can set the value of purchases at their discretion..
