Why Use MRE Meals?

MRE meals are meals ready to eat. They are an ideal meal to take on hiking trips, camping and for doomsday preppers. Thanks to their lightweight portability they are easy to store and easy to pack for hiking and camping as well as for other times when you need to have some food on hand.

Many people buy them by the case. You can buy a variety flavor case or all one flavor and mix and match what you pack.

Since they are so lightweight even the youngest family member can carry his or her share in their own backpack. 

Originally developed by the military, the MREs have launched out into the civilian sector. Today, there are many great wholesale companies that sell MREs both online and in brick and mortar stores.

MREs are an ideal nutritional package with everything you need for a healthy meal all in the same package. They range from 600 calories to 2000 calories depending on the kind that you've purchased.

Another great benefit to MREs is that you can heat them up with a flameless heat source that comes with them. In just 10 minutes you can go from a lightweight MRE package to a healthy, nutritious hot meal.

Another great way to utilize MREs is for boy scout trips, girl scout trips, and church youth groups. After a long day hiking, it's nice to have a quick meal and no one has to stress over building a campfire in areas where it's not advisable. 

The more you buy the more you save and MREs offer a great value and a healthier alternative to fast food. Ready in just minutes, anyone can add a few tablespoons of water to these and activate the heat pack.
