Emergency Essentials Food Storage Analyzer Review

In an emergency, when food may not be readily available, it pays to be prepared with canned, freeze dried, dehydrated, MRE's and just add water food. Getting the food and preparing for a disaster or emergency situation is only part of the battle. How do you make sure you and your family will still get the nutritional needs necessary. The Preparedness Pantry Emergency Essentials Food Storage Analyzer is a calculator that does all of the work for you! It figures out the nutritional and caloric needs of your family, then calculated the products you should have in your emergency preparedness kit.


I signed up for the FREE calculator and gave it a good go around. Signing up was simple and easy. I just put in my info, number of people and their ages. Then it makes recommendations on products that you can purchase directly through the site. Also, once you have an account set up, it keeps track of the purchases that you've made . That way, you can always see what you have, what you should buy, and what might need replacing. You can even add items that you may have purchased elsewhere so that you can see them on your list.

I give this two thumbs up! What a simple service. So easy to use and an easy way to be prepared for something we may never even think about, but need to be prepared for.

Check out the Preparedness Pantry site here: http://preparednesspantry.blogspot.com/

And check out the Emergency Essentials Calculator for yourself here: http://beprepared.com/article.asp?ai=608&

Gift Card Giveaway


I was offered a $10 off coupon for writing a review of this site. It, in no way, affected my review of the site. I always give honest and thoughful reviews, regardless of compensation. For more info and to read my Full Disclosure/Acknowledgment Policy HERE.
