I usually eat something on the way because all of our meets are usually a ways away. (We have one Saturday morning at 8:00 AM, bleh!) usually a small fruit cup and maybe some chick minis at Chickfila or something even lighter. Never chocolate milk for me... I am lactose sensitive... That won't end up well, especially if I start on beam
oh and I never eat during my meets. I'm just not hungry when I'm nervous. But a girl on my team brings a WHOLE bunch of Pringles, cheezits, pretzels, you name it, she brought it. I don't know how she does it! But if you're super hungry, pack some crackers or a protein bar for during. Every person is different. Oh and one more tip, if you're the type of person to be really nervous, ask your coach if you can pull out your iPhone and listen to some pump up music. (Hall of Fame, The Fighter, Girl on Fire.) it helps me a lot. Just breathe and do your best!
