Cannot bring fresh fruit or veg so eat or toss those bananas, apples, etc. Before you enter.

Yes you can bring dry cereal. As it's not a "gel or liquid" it can even be in your carry-on. And certainly OK in checked luggage. It is agricultural items that have restrictions like fresh fruits and vegetables.

No vegemite, CheeseWhiz, or circus peanuts.

(Seriously, though: Only fresh produce is a problem. Packaged cereal is fine.)

I'm guessing NO to the homemade apple chips, if they were commercially processed yes, but I would call to ask:

I don't think you can bring apple chips. I'm pretty sure they'd still be considered fresh produce for the agricultural inspection/restrictions.

Some kinds of fresh produce are allowed from the mainland. You must fill out a declaration form and have the items inspected.

I believe the cite above is for travel from the mainland, not foreign countries.
