What to take while RV travelling between Canada and Alaska

We are Canadians and are taking an RV trip between Canada and Alaska. What are we allowed to take for food when crossing the boarder. All sites are confusing and there are different answers for all questions

I can't recall any food issues btw Canada and US, but it has been awhile since I have driven Out.

From govt site about food - perhaps that will help. You may not know specifics until you cross - I am sure it would mainly be anything fresh, so eat up before you cross:

Not that I know of what foods are legal &/or not, but I've never had a problem with anything I've bought in a grocery or liquor store.

About the only border I have had problems with would be going into California . . . they are very strict about many plants & fruits. :)

We've traveled back & forth with food, beer, etc with no issues.

The pet vet papers must be current.
