As you stock food, take into account your family's unique needs and tastes. Try to include foods they enjoy as well as those high in calories and nutrition. Foods requiring no refrigeration, preparation or cooking are best.
Individuals with special diets and allergies will need particular attention as will babies, toddlers and the elderly. Nursing mothers may need liquid formula in case they are unable to nurse. Canned dietetic foods, juices and soups may be helpful for the ill or elderly.
Make sure you have a can opener and disposable utensils. And don't forget nonperishable foods for your pets.
