What the world's armies eat

One of the biggest challenges facing any military is providing each soldier with a lightweight, self-contained, high-calorie meal inside of a combat zone.

These individual field rations called “Meal Ready-to-Eat”(MRE) are designed to give service members well-balanced meals that can last them an entire day.
