How much of sticklers are they for bringing in snacks for the kids or whatever? Someone told me they pat everyone down. Is that true?!

I was there with work for opening day.

They search bags and they wand you down with the metal detector wand- if it beeps, they pat you down.
I wasn't patted down but yes, they searched my bag.
How thoroughly, I can't say. She kind of did a quick once over of my bag- didn't dig too deep

I doubt they will dig past your diapers to be honest.

I'm pretty sure you can bring food and water into citi field. It just has to be soft plastic and factory sealed. Your bag has to be a certain size though.

I don’t know if you’re allowed to bring in food/drinks but they check your bag with a little stick thing. I think if you put it on the bottom of the diaper bag or a side pocket or wrapped in a baby blanket you’d be fine. They aren’t really pulling everything out.

I think you're good if you hide it underneath something. We did this once, brought in veggie straws for my son because we knew he wouldn't eat anything there.

Re: Has anyone been to a mets game recently?

Found this for you:

Is outside food allowed in Citi Field?
A: Yes, whether it's homemade or takeout from a restaurant, outside food is permitted in the stadium.
Just make sure the food is easily accessible as security guards must check the contents of your bags or packages before you enter the ballpark ... Also, don't store your food in a hard-sided cooler, a glass container or any item larger than 16-by-16-by-8-inches as it will not be allowed inside Citi Field

Are you allowed to bring drinks into the stadium?
A: Guests may bring in one, factory-sealed plastic water bottle measuring 20 ounces or less and one sealed, soft-sided child's juice box, but they cannot be frozen. Unfortunately, you’ll have to throw away all other beverages before entering the park or leave them in your car. Metal cans, glass bottles, alcoholic beverages and open containers of any kind are strictly prohibited as well.

we bring in snacks all the time - no problems at all.

They're more concerned with opened water bottles or alcohol
