customs restrictions for new zealand

Jump to last reply

I know that New Zealand is strict on keeping foreign soil, grasses, etc... out of the country so we are planning to give our hiking boots a good cleaning before we depart. However, I just went to the customs website and see that we will also have to declare "food of any kind". We often pack some food items with us like snack bars, cereal, etc so that my picky son has some foods he likes and so we don't have to worry about grocery shopping when we first arrive. Will we have problems if we pack these types of items? We'd be fine declaring them but are they allowed at all? Or would we end up just having to throw them out. We wouldn't be packing anything listed on this high risk list from the website: " fresh fruit and vegetables, egg cartons, all honey and bee products, straw, dried flowers, seeds, cane/bamboo/rattan items, pine cones, potpourri and other organic matter."

Thanks for the help.
