PHOENIX -

For those of you who are flying over the next couple of weeks, there are some things to remember as you pack.

Traveling with children:

Formula, breast milk, juices and juice boxes are okay to take through security, just let them know as you go through -- they might take an additional sort of screening.

Car seats:
You can check your car seat through at no additional charge on most major airlines.

Traveling with gifts:
Best advice is to pack them in your luggage if you're checking bags, but if you're carrying on, don't wrap them.  TSA will likely unwrap them.

Traveling with food:
Pies and cakes are okay to take through security, but no jams, jellies, peanut butters or sauces.

Removing your shoes:
If you are 75 and older or traveling with a child who is under age 12, you no longer have to take off your shoes to go through security.

35 of the busiest airports, including Sky Harbor, now allow select travelers to zip through security if they enroll in TSA's pre-check.  They don't have to remove belts, shoes, jackets -- basically they're pre-screened via a bar code on their boarding pass.
