Stockpiling cereal for emergencies

Get nutty about granola, stay cheery with Cheerios for survival!
Your kids are the real cereal killers — whether it's the littlest
kiddo stealing the marshmallows in your lucky charms or your
teen having an after-school snack — your supply of cereal is
always dwindling. You need a stockpile of cereal (and powdered
milk) if you have kids in the prepper household!

Below is everything you need to know to keep cereal in the
prepper's pantry for your long term food storage...

Cereal as emergency food storage
Did you know that cereal is among the most requested foods at
the food banks? Cereal is fairly shelf-stable, however, you can
there are many ways to stockpile cereal to ensure you have a
supply even ten years from now if you don't buy another box of

How to stock up on cereal:
You can buy it at the grocery stores when it goes on sale and
keep them in your pantry rotating them — or you can buy cereal
in bulk and pack it for long term storage in buckets.

Saratoga Farms was a supplier who had done the work for you in
their cereal buckets, right, but they're all sold out and no longer
selling them. No worries, because you can do it yourself by buying
cereal in bulk at
Sam's Club, Costco and Smart & Final.

It's not enough to stock away a few boxes of cereal in your
prepper's grocery store. It's a good start, but you can store cereal
for the long term in
Mylar bags and food grade buckets and
including a couple of
oxygen absorbers and a gamma seal lid so
you can keep the cereal fresh.

Variety is key as well. Below are some cereal suggestions for the
prepper's pantry...

#1: Breakfast Cereals.
There aren't too many varieties of cereal available in the bucket,
Saratoga Farms had some varieties:

  • Saratoga Farms Cereal Buckets - Honey Nut. The Saratoga
    Farms Honey Nut Cereal bucket is a must have if you have
    young kids. It's the classic cereal you love. One thing you'll
    notice when opening one Saratoga Farms buckets is that
    they're filled to maximum capacity. They will last 20-years
    unopened. It's a great deal when you compare it with a tiny
    #2.5 can of O-cereal, pictured at the bottom right hand of
    the page, which is just 3.5 ounces of food. The bucket of
    honey nut cereal is filled to the brim to give you the best
    value. You get 5.78 lbs (2.62 kg) of cereal!

  • Saratoga Farms Cereal Bucket - Frosted Square. The
    frosted square cereal is the same familiar cereal, but comes
    in the Saratoga Farms ValueBUCKET which is already packed
    for you in a Mylar bag with oxygen absorbers sealed inside
    and a food grade bucket ensuring your food lasts 20 years.

#2: Creamy wheat cereal.
American's today don't eat near as much creamy wheat, farina, as
they did during the
Great Depression. The most popular brand of
creamy wheat was
Cream of Wheat. Farina is a wheat semolina
similar to grits. It's a ground wheat with a smooth texture and is
white and fluffy. Using milk instead of water will make cream of
wheat more rich and satisfying.

Enriched Cream of Wheat is an excellent source of iron, but it
also has calcium and essential vitamins to start your day.  Mix it
freeze dried fruit or applesauce; or top creamy wheat with
maple syrup or brown sugar. Right is Creamy Wheat for the
prepper's pantry —it has a shelf life of 10 years and provides 36
Augason Farms recommends you add their freeze dried
strawberries, raspberries or blueberries.

#3: Granola.
Granola is both a snack and a breakfast food, granola goes even
beyond this as a food stroage. Pour it in a bowl and add a little
milk for a superb breakfast cereal, or use it as a base for building
a down-to-earth trail mix or for making cookies or muffins.
Granola is good to have in your food storage:

  • Augason FarmsGranola. Oats and Honey Granola from
    Augason Farms is available for long term food storage. Mix
    Augason Farms Oats and Honey Granola with freeze-dried
    fruits for tasty trail mix or sprinkle on yogurt for healthy
    breakfast the #10 can, right, consists of 24 servings and
    6,000 calories. It's a deal when compared ;with the Mountain
    House Granola, but there is a difference. Mountain House
    granola includes the milk and delicious blueberries. With
    Nutty Granola, you'll need to stock the powdered milk!

  • Mountain House Granola. With Mountain House Granola you
    just add water, not milk. Packed with blueberries, Mountain
    House comes with a 30-year taste guarantee! Mountain
    House is scientifically proven to last 25-years, but they back
    you up for an extra five years. Perfect with hot or cold water,
    Mountain House granola and blueberries has fueled everyone
    from United States Special Forces to explorers on Antarctic
    expeditions, and everywhere in between. Made with crunchy
    granola, milk and real blueberries. Stock up for your prepper's

  • Right is a six-pack of Mountain House Granola with
    Blueberries in the Mountain House #10-can is perfect
    with hot or cold water. The Granola and Blueberries has
    fueled everyone from United States Special Forces to
    explorers on Antarctic expeditions.

  • Mountain House also offers packets of granola for
    backpacking or camping. You don't even need a bowl!
    Packed with energizing dried fruit, fiber, and
    unsaturated fats the Mountain House Granola and
    Blueberries breakfast will keep your metabolism
    humming all day long. Contains 2 1/2-cup servings. You
    get 4.0z of food.

  • Backpacker's Pantry Granola with Bananas. If you want
    variety to your meal offerings, add Backpacker's Pantry to
    your lineup. Backpackers Pantry Granola with Bananas is
    more expensive than the Mountain House brand, but you'll
    get variety and almost double the portion of food. It works
    as a satisfying breakfast for two campers, or you can scarf it
    down by yourself when you need a lot of fuel for a big day of
    backpacking. Makes two 13 oz servings. It has 16 grams of
    protein per serving and is made with hormone-free milk! You
    get 9.5 ounces of food, almost double the Mountain House.
    This is delicious granola with a hint of vanilla topped with
    bananas and milk powder.

#4: Oats, oatmeal and Muesli.
Oats are great for breakfast. Oatmeal is a classic cereal porridge
that's making a comeback.
Oatmeal is extremely versatile, but
also Muesli, which is a mostly oat cereal that's so tasty with
dehydrated fruit.

Prepare for emergencies! Stockpile the prepper's pantry with a
variety of your favorite cereals as food storage. You can buy
ready made cereal buckets and #10 cans, or pack your own.

#5: Stock up on bulk cereal.
Stock up on bulk cereal on Amazon or when it goes on sale at
your local super market. Couponing is a great way to stock up on
bulk cereal. Be a "cereal killer" and save! Healthy Prepper below
shares her secrets to killing it on the cereal savings.
