First, Check the Airline's Restrictions
References Transportation Security Administration: If you are checking a bag, you dont have to worry about the liquid restrictions. I tend to agree with Evening - smart choices and appropriate portion control of "real" food is likely healthier and has fewer calories anyway and would be a whole lot less hassle. I would pack them so they are easily accessible by TSA top of your carry-on. Packing Food If you toss all your Nutrisystem food into your suitcase with your bathing suit and toiletries, it'll be crushed by the time you're ready to eat.

You might also use dry ice to keep your cooler cold. Double-check that your lodgings have a freezer, since the cooler will only keep food cold for a day or so. Once you've packed your food, sticking it in the trunk of your car is easy; bringing it on a flight is a bit more difficult. The Transportation Security Administration will allow you to bring food through security in your carry-on luggage. Leave your nonperishables in your bag when they run through the X-ray machine.
If you opt to check a suitcase full of Nutrisystem food, stuff crumpled paper or cotton into any open spaces to cradle the food and keep it from turning to crumbs during baggage handling. If you opt to bring any frozen snacks in your carry-on, they can stay in your bag as long as they're fully frozen at the time you go through security.
If they've started to melt at all, these items will be subject to the TSA's rules. This means each semi-melted item needs to be smaller than 3. Most airlines will also allow you to use a cooler containing either gel packs or dry ice as either checked or carry-on luggage. You must label the cooler and, if you're using it as a carry-on, ensure that it's within the airline's size requirements for carry-ons. Many airlines allow you to bring no more than 5.
Cooking, travel and parenting are three of Kathryn Walsh's passions. CancunMole beat me to it but there's also the food restrictions to worry about, not just the liquid restrictions. I don't know what all of the food restrictions are but I'd research them carefully before loading anything up, I've heard those meals are a bit pricey when you are relying on them so it wouldn't be fun if they just threw them away.
First of all, if you're talking about schlepping food to Mexico , I doubt you're traveling in carry on luggage? If you are checking a bag, you dont have to worry about the liquid restrictions. They only apply to carry on luggage. I've never considered importing anything but snack food for the flight into Mexico and bagels for a hotelier, and sea salt for a Christmas gift so have never checked the restrictions, but if their customs site specifies meat is not allowed - she should bring only the chicken dishes.
Or, stick to the more vegetarian stuff - the pastas - if she is really concerned. If she sticks to real Mexican food while in Mexico she will likely be eating fewer calories than in the typical Nutrisystem dish anyway.
I'm not talking about tacos with cheese and sour cream slathered all over them - that's not real Mexican food. According to this website - bajabound. I'm not sure how Nutrisystem food is packaged but suspect that a Customs Officer may want to open it up to confirm what's in it. If that happens, how quickly would the contents spoil?
So, even if your sister is allowed to keep the food, is it possible that much of it will much of it go bad before it can be consumed? I tend to agree with Evening - smart choices and appropriate portion control of "real" food is likely healthier and has fewer calories anyway and would be a whole lot less hassle.
