For this one, I'm merging it with other BMQ care package posts only because the needs in BMQ are quite different to the needs of those overseas/deployed.

They'll have to earn those snacks, usually through push ups and only then will they get them if there is enough for everyone.

Don't send anything with high sugar or fat content. The healthier the better.

Probably best to just send them a card, a letter, something a little more personal and will help their morale rather than their stomach... They're well taken care of out there. That's just my opinion though.
Thanks for the suggestion! Is it okay to send him pills like Tylenol/Advil?

The snacks would most likely be shared with the entire platoon right after receiving the package, as it is very team orientated. If this isn't the case, it will most likely be placed into civvie lockup until they're on their weekends. In my experience, I'd suggest just sending toonies or something for the vending machines as those can get pretty rare or you could risk putting a 20 in a machine and not getting anything back lol.
Thanks for the suggestions! I didn't know there were vending machines available. Also, is it okay to send him pills like Tylenol/Advil?

Shouldn't be an issue as long as they are sealed. If they're opened, they will be confiscated as Staff cannot determine the true substance.
