Do you eat what's offered or do you bring your own food? Do you ever ask for the special meals? Is one better than the other?

I'm lactose intolerant but the dairyfree meals offered on planes are horrid. Usually bland, boring, tasteless and unappetizing. They seem to think dairyfree should also be vegetarian and no sodium. I've been taking my chances and choosing from the two options normally offered. Usually there's one that will work. It's a good thing my SO is not fussy, we'll get both options and I'll eat what I can and he finishes the rest.

A friend of mine orders a kiddie meal when she flies. She says they're great; hamburger, hot dogs, all the fun foods! Which got me thinking, are there any other tricks we should know about?
