A: It’s recommended that most folks stock up on as many Emergency Food Bar Kits as they can.
If you'd like to stock up, please consider the 4-Kit Package. It includes 4 Kits, the FREE Digital Book, PLUS 2 FREE 72-Hour Survival Food Kits. Here's the link if you want to check it out.
One Food Bars Kit provides basic rations to 1 person for 30 days. In it, you'll get 90 bars, 36,000 calories (about 1,200 calories per person per day).+
You can consume more or fewer calories per day; obviously, that will impact the number of days that your kit can last. Every person’s individual caloric need is different. Caloric needs vary based on your age, gender and physical activity level. Again, every person’s needs, goals and desires for nutrition / calorie intake is different.
Similarly, every person’s access to supplement with other foods on hand (canned, bulk, refrigerated, frozen, etc.) and their likelihood to supplement by acquiring additional foods (via fishing, hunting, gardening) during an emergency situation is different.
Our kits are intended to provide you with energy and nutrients during stressful emergency situations. They are not intended to be complete caloric replacements during “normal” times. In general, an average adult needs approximately 2,000 calories per day to meet their energy needs. Our Food Bar Kits provide 1,200 calories per day. For most people, this caloric intake will be enough for survival, although it may not be enough for optimal nutrition, especially for an extended period of time.
In order to supplement your daily calorie intake, to add variety or to provide food for more than one person, we offer a number of supplemental products, including deluxe meal kits, meat packs, fruit and vegetable packs, etc. By combining our Food Bars with these additional products, you can ensure that you have 2,000 calories per day available to you during emergency situations.
We’d be happy to discuss your particular preparedness goals, and to help you select more or less survival food to meet your unique needs. Just call our friendly Customer Service team at 1-800-728-0008. We’re available 24/7 to help.
+You may want or need more calories or nutrients per day. To learn more, please see footnote 1 at bottom of page.
