Food, Sizes and Servings

Sheryl Battin



I believe that there has been some question on judging how much food to buy for trips. This is my revised list from a handout from my council. I use it less than I thought I would. I have not checked all of these so the sizes may not be correct. I have noticed that the servings are close to what our Troop of Juniors eat but it is a large Troop where the big eaters and the non eaters cancel each other out so you may need to adjust to how your Troop and Adults eat.
