Nice to hear workman! What's the name of the channel?

The British have 10 different 24 hour ration menus that are vegetarian. Menu names are V1 thorugh V10, haven't tried them yet though so would like to view a Review on it :)

The swedes have a few 24 hour ration menus that are also vegetarian, tried the spicy bean pasta and regular bean pasta and they tasted good! Not top notch but not bad either :)

La Sweed,
The Channel is "Animal Free MRE", But SOME DAY,
I would like to make my own line of MREs for Dietary restrictions (Vegan/Vegetarian/Gluten/Nut allergy's) and also children MREs AKA "Happy Meals" in mind! Instead of a toy it would be an activity survival book series to collect or heirloom seeds to collect.
Hence- "Workman MRE". I thought using it as my user name might get the word around a bit more!

Cheers!

I really lile the idea of a kids friendly meal! A way to make an excursion into the bush more special, and in cases of emergency a way for the kids to take their minds of what it happening around them :) I can feel as a father of one three year old and a one year old with quite a picky taste. That a kids designed meal would have a lot bigger chance of getting accepted than a mre or bush made food :)

Found a menu list for the british vegetarian 24 hour rations, 2016 edition. Might give you some idea of what they contain :)

Agreed Laswede, I think it is an untapped market to parents who love there children...I Was floored after purchasing hundreds of dollars worth of MREs just to find out my kids wont eat but 10% of them. I ended up still cooking for them, which defeats the purpose of an MRE, If im cooking for them might as well cook fresh for myself also. (If available in an emergency situation.)

This is a Passion of mine to make this a reality. Not just for profit but for personal peace of mind.

The list you sent was AWESOME! Im going to try to eat each one! Hopefully My girls can try them with me also. I have a good list of Kid friendly dishes and snacks to start a 10 menu course to start!!

Thanks for the Support and the help on the hunt!

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with, You have earned a "WorkmanMRE favor"! Good to use or redeem anytime!
I am a graphic designer and an illustrator, Maybe I can help you with a design in thanks!
Thanks Again!

Found a swedish 4 course vegan menu. Looks good but my thought is if 4 packs of peanuts is too much? Seems as a lack of vegan substitutes?
