"I'm impressed how well all the great camping standby meals for kids are covered here. With a 10 and 12 year old and many years of scouts under my belt, I tend to 1) bring a very small cooler (such as for a 6 pack), 2) use either…"
"It will probably give you cancer, but omelets in a bag are handy and tasty. Just put a couple eggs in a ziploc bag, scramble it with your salt, pepper, cheese, etc. and boil it. Also, for guaranteed diarrhea, "walking tacos." Cook up some…"

"I go camping all the time with Scouts (10-14years) they love Hamburgers, hotdogs and Stews.

Scouts Tonight were planning to cook pancakes over a stove they…"
"Hi well she is only five, so she will have particular taste and favourite foods. Ask her what she would like to eat at camping, and/or what she likes at home. Use your observasion skills at home to see what she likes at home, and try to match…"
"When I go camping I have the luxury of an ice box so I can take in fresh veg and make salads to accompany all the meat .
Two of my faves are couscous ( kids should find this easy to make ) add sliced chillis peas and spring onion . Another is corn…"
"One item that my family loves when camping is the pie iron. We bring along pizza sauce with some cheese and peperoni and make hot melty pizza sandwiches. Even your regular meat and cheese sandwich taste better toasted with the cheese melted. For…"
"Campfire chili dogs are great if your daughter is in to spicier food. They're relatively easy to put together -- basically just hot dogs with some extras -- and very tasty. And for breakfast there are some surprisingly tasty variations you…"

"Wow, congratulations. My goal is just to have a more healthful diet. I am not overweight, but I do have a family history of diabetes, and I know eventually when I'm older that eating junk food will have greater consequences. Thanks for the…"
