PUPILS TASTE THE SCIENCE BEHIND MRE MEALS
Year 8 pupils have been learning about MREs in school today.
MREs (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) are an individual lightweight ration for service members to eat out in field conditions when other food is not available.
Woodlands pupils were surprised to hear about the design of the packaging to ensure that they are highly portable and ergonomic to fit into cargo pockets of military uniforms, and that the triple layering of pouches maintains freshness for at least three years!
They also learned that MREs are sometimes distributed to civilians during natural disasters.
