Confessions of a Dietitian

Emergency Food Preparedness is very real these days.  With pandemics, isolation and natural disasters happening all over the world right now, it is a good time to examine your emergency plans and food preparations.  This post is all about ideas for making your very own 72 hour emergency food kit.

With all the craziness in the world lately, many of us are reconsidering our preparedness. There is a lot of unknown with the Covid-19 pandemic.  Many stores and businesses are closing. Some supplies are scarce and hard to come by.  Financial uncertainty and job insecurity are rampant. The possibility of lock-down is a very real thing to consider if you live in a large city. An important question to ask yourself is:

Do I have enough food stored in my home to feed my family for 14 straight days if needed?

Then in the midst of all the pandemic concerns, the Salt Lake City area experienced a 5.7 earthquake.  This sparked many Utahns to think about natural disaster preparedness too.
