Don't stay near the edge of the screen. This is where an item first appears and you won't have time to see if it's food or dynamite. When dynamite comes between you and food, wait until the path is clear to move up or down the screen.

Remember that you can wait in a single path as long as you like. You won't be penalized, and it may give you more time to plan your strategy.
