Packaged food for camping

Packaged food portions are healthy and equivalent of an average persons requirement. However, camping food should be chosen according to individual capacity so as to remain well nourished throughout your hiking trip.
Most pre-packaged food portions are healthy and equivalent of an average persons requirement. However, camping food should be chosen according to individual capacity so as to remain well nourished throughout your hiking trip.
As it is difficult to have a gas-flame to heat on camping trips, some pre-packaged camping food can be heated with a heating pouch by adding water to a chemical heating source. However, this may tend to get quite heavy and difficult to dispose. In such a scenario, it is better to carry a small stove while backpacking.
Camping food also offers tradeoffs which may not always be connoisseur, but it is infinitely better than what you would traditionally get on a hiking trip. Its light, convenient, and provides a quick hot meal. Try different varieties and flavours of foods that suit you and select what you would like to carry with you. Breakfast food can be a combination of various cereals, both hot and cold as well as oatmeal.
You could combine two or three packages or even different flavours and store them in ziplock bags for convenient handling and trash disposal. You can also add sugar, salt, raisins, dried apples, nuts, dry fruits and dry milk to make it quick and easy to use at a later time.
Instant soup or noodles make a nice, hot and quick meal while packets of tea and coffee will supplement it on an exceptionally tiring and cold day.
