Those things are ok to take along. If you are flying back to Mexico via the US I would not recomment to bring "suspicious" foods from Russia to your home. The airport security, when you will be entering the country, may not allow you to bring them in.

If you bring fresh fruits you must go through agricultural control. Actually I always bring fruits from tropical countries, gothrough green corridor and have never been catched but the customs oficers may have different attitude to foreigners.
As for canned food, cereals etc. you may bring them or you may buy them in any supermarket here for cheaper.
