    You will need 'packaged' food. They do not allow home made (at least I'm pretty sure they don't). Pretty much what @Louise41 suggested. Also squeezy food stuff like custard etc as well.

    We've done a few long haul flights. I take small packaged food that doesn't need to be kept cold and is not too messy.

    For the 1 year old, a variety of squeezy packs is pretty handy. Rusks are also good for that age.

    Other snack foods pre-packaged or in ziplock bags are rice crackers, pretzels, popcorn, biscuits(tiny teddies etc) cereal, small bread rolls, babybel cheese, cheese and crackers, dried fruit.Save some packaged lollies or fruit ropes or similar treats for emergency diversion situations. I bought a multi pack of natural lollies for just such emergencies.

    On long haul flights, the kids meals are pretty good but there can be lots of waiting periods.

    It's also good to have lollypops or gummy lollies or dummies for landings when their ears will start hurting.

    The flight is 23 hours including a stop over till we board the next flight.
    My 1 yr old does not eat Packaged food.

    I have those fruit biscuits, I'll get some pizza rolls for them, chips, croissants. Fruit. Etc

    You can take non packaged food onto the first fight but depending on where the stop over is and if you leave the airport you may need to throw it out. So maybe take back up packaged food for the second flight.

    You are going via Dubai? They have some food places that you may be able to pick up some stuff for the 2nd flight.

    Sometimes you can check the in flight menus of your airline before you fly and supplement with food that your children like.

    Depending where you stop -over you can supplement your snacks there also.
