The camping food list is sorted in categories to make your packing and buying easier. Once again leave out what you feel is unnecessary or add your favorites.
Before we start with the official list, always make sure to have plenty of drinking water especially if you don't know what the quality of the water will be where you're going.
Take plenty of healthy snacks like nuts, dried fruit, granola bars and some others like chips/crisps, biscuits, etc.
Here is a 7 day camping menu all worked out for you.
Canned foods are easy to add to any meat dish or use as a side dish. Available in a wide range of products and easy to transport. The only downside is that it takes up a lot of space.
Carbohydrates is great for energy and an important part of everyday diet. Useful to have all purpose flour to bake a quick bread, scones or pancakes.
Chutney, pickles, soy sauce and general condiments are great for adding flavor to any dish. Preserved salads like bottled beet root and the handy pre-made salads such as three bean and carrot salads are convenient side dishes for any meal.
Prepare small zip-lock bags or any other small containers with tight fitting lids for in between snacks. Fill with a mixture of nuts, raisins, pretzels, dried cranberries or any other dried fruit add some jelly beans or small chocolates and dish out whenever anyone needs an energy boost or a snack in between meals.
Long life products have a long shelf life and handy to have when fresh milk and yogurt is not available.
Always find out if fresh products are readily available at the camp grounds or if there are shops nearby.
This camping food list is a broad outline and should be adjusted to your personal needs and preferences.
