Baby Food - connecting flights

We’re currently on holiday in the south of France with our 10.5 month old. We’ve got friends flying to come and visit. One is flying from Dublin but is connecting in Frankfurt.

If I do a Boots click and collect order of baby food for Dublin airport, will it be ok for him to bring all the way through or will it be confiscated at Frankfurt?

If they have to go through security again, they might have some trouble taking baby food through if they are not travelling with a baby. Is it a specialised food that isn't available locally? From what I remember, French supermarkets had a pretty good range of babyfood.

If its over 100ml, he’s not actually travelling with an infant and has to go through security again then yes they’ll take it. French supermarkets are great for baby food though, can’t you get stuff there?

It's a bit of a risk if you're reliant in it. You can certainly take milk and they might have to open one as a sample, but I haven't tried with food. And I also haven't tried without a baby in tow.

First thought would be to buy food in France? They have pretty similar stuff?

Second thought would be a C&C local to your friend in Dublin - or just ask them to go to a supermarket - and they bring it in check-in, if they are bringing any?
