Here at Emergency Essentials®, we really try to focus on educating our customers. Over 24 years of experience have taught us a lot of really good things about what to do (and what not to do) when it comes to food storage and emergency preparation. And we see it as our job to pass that on to you!

So here are what we are calling our "14 Tips for Food Storage Shopping". These are the questions you should ask, the facts to check, and the information you will need to make the best, most well informed purchase possible for you and your family.

Over the next few weeks we will be covering each one of these extensively. So read over them, and let us know in the comments what you think!

Tip #2

Think in terms of calories per person per day. High stress situations require more calories. Under normal Circumstances, adults need 2000-2600 calories per day, more if very active. Children need 1500-1600 calories per day or more to maintain growth and energy. (click here for more info)

Be sure you can determine how many calories per person per day you are purchasing. If you are unable to determine the quantities in a kit, combo or year supply, you may Replace yourself not having as much nourishment as you thought. For example, 2,000 calories per day for a month for one person is about 60,000 total calories; for a year, 730,000.

We have an amazing tool called the "Food Storage Analyzer". It will allow you to see everydetail of your food storage at a glance. How many calories each person in your family will have each day, as well as details about nutrients such as calcium, vitamin, protein etc.
