Why Buy Calories vs. Servings
How often do you eat the recommended servings on the food that you prepare right now? If you're like me, not very often. So, it goes to reason, if you buy your emergency food storage by the serving, should you ever need it, someone is going on a diet, or you are going to burn through your food preps much quicker than you had anticipated.
Think about this, when you go grocery shopping, do you buy food based on how many servings each product has, or do you buy the amount of food that your family actually eats?
How many calories do you eat each day? The FDA bases all of their nutrition recommendations on a 2000 calorie per day diet. So why do the Survival Food Producers and our competitors offer their pre-packaged food packages based on an average of 1300 calories a day? Simple, it makes the food packages seem less expensive and helps them sell more food packages.
How Does this Work?
If Dad eats 2000 calories a day, Mom eats 1800 and little Susie eats 1400, your family has a daily caloric intake of 5200 calories. If you were to buy a package that is advertised to last "one month", based on serving counts, your family may actually only be protected for ten to fifteen days, unless they eat the "recommended serving sizes" determined by the food producer.
So, if you want to make sure that you and your family is solidly protected for one month, and is eating the same amount of food that they are accustomed to each day, all you need to do is to calculate the family's daily caloric intake with our Calorie Calculator to the left. <<<<
Simply put in the estimated daily caloric intake for each person in the calculator, add the number of days that you would like to be protected, then shop for meal packages that contain the total amount of calories that are needed to feed your family. It's that simple.
