MREs Military Ready To Eat

Yesterday and today

The military makes a few changes to the menus every year so you will find a different menu listing for each year. In general, though, each MRE contains the following:

▪ Entree: the main course, such as Spaghetti or Beef Stew
▪ Side dish: rice, corn, fruit, or mashed potatoes, etc.
▪ Cracker or Bread
▪ Spread: peanut butter, jelly, or cheese spread
▪ Dessert: cookies or pound cakes
▪ Candy: M&Ms, Skittles, or Tootsie Rolls
▪ Beverages: Gatorade-like drink mixes, cocoa, dairy shakes, coffee, tea
▪ Hot sauce or seasoning: in some MREs
▪ Flameless Ration Heater: to heat up the entree
▪ Accessories: spoon, matches, creamer, sugar, salt, chewing gum, toilet paper, etc.

Each MRE provides an average of 1,250 calories (13% protein, 36% fat, and 51% carbohydrates) and 1/3 of the Military Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamins and minerals. A full day’s worth of meals would consist of three MREs.
