Taking your kids camping is one of the most exciting adventures in the world.
You get to spend time in the great outdoors. Furthermore, you get to show your children that there’s fun beyond staring at their screens.
One of our favorite parts of camping is food. There’s really nothing like enjoying tasty grubs whilst being in the wilderness. So if it’s your first time going camping with your family, then you’re in luck.
Here’s a budget-friendly family guide to weekend camping meals.
- How much food should you pack?
The worst that could happen is under-packing food your family. No one wants to explore the great outdoors on an empty stomach, right? At the same time, it wouldn’t be good overdoing it. Otherwise, you’ll end up with excess baggage that’s just far too uncomfortable to carry around.
A healthy estimate is 1.5 to 2.5 lbs. of food (or 2,500 to 4,500 calories) per person per day. This of course, depends on a person’s weight and exertion level.
- Bring and befriend the grill
There’s really something about cooking with fire that is constantly enticing. The food seems so much tastier, especially when you do it in the middle of a forest or overlooking a stunning mountain.
Don’t forget to bring a grill with you. You can cook multiple types of food all at the same time. Plus, you get to enjoy camping without sacrificing flavor.
- You can feed a family of five for three days for $50
Camp meals shouldn’t always be expensive. This sounds impossible but someone’s actually done it. Plus, all the meals were healthy and tasteful. Here’s how you can do it.
