Camping meals need to make the whole family happy. There isn’t an unlimited supply of food for them to just make something else if they don’t like the dinner plan.
Cereal doesn’t cut it when you have been outside playing all day.
Peanut butter and jelly will only go so far. I personally could eat it every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But the family would probably mutiny.
Planning Your Family Meals
It isn’t always easy to sit down and plan what you are going to make while you are out camping for 3-5 days. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
That is a lot of food to plan for. Multiply that by 3-5 family members and their likes and dislikes and you might want to just serve peanut butter and jelly.
Having a meal plan in advance will help you to grab all the food you need to pack, the kitchen gadgets and supplies you need to make enough meals to keep everyone fed and still have fun.
Breakfast Camping Meals
Breakfast meals that you can make ahead for your camping trip. Easy meals that will feed the whole family. Breakfast will give you the energy to spend the day outside playing!
Pack a quick lunch or bake one on the fire. After playing all morning, everyone will be super hungry and ready for another meal. Make something ahead of time and eat it cold or cook something yummy on the fire.
You can always pack hotdogs and burgers for a camping dinner. What about all the other fun dishes you can make. Try some fish tacos or a foil meal. Beans and rice in a Brazillian dish will make the whole family happy. Try one of these yummy dinner recipes for your next camping meal.
This is just a small list of foods that you could add to your list for camping. There are still the classic foods to pack as well.
Hot dogs and burgers always make great camping food. S’mores for dessert are never a bad idea. There are a number of ways to dress these up as well.
We didn’t even talk about tomato soup and grilled cheese. Regular sandwiches and chips. The list could just go on and on!
Which foods do you pack for every camping trip? Do you have a family favorite that goes on the menu every time you camp?
