Chef Beaver

Objective: I will have fun making food and exploring healthy eating. When planning your adventures, you might like to have

  • an adventure that involves eating outdoors
  • an adventure in which you learn about lightweight/backpacking food

Remember, when sharing food with others, be aware of possible food allergies.

Here are some ideas to help you start creating your own adventures

  • Prepare a meal with help. Tell your family or Lodge about how you made sure to use healthy food and/or all the food groups.
  • Try three new foods that you’ve never tried before. Which foods do you like? Why?
  • Create and make a recipe that includes all the food groups in Canada’s Food Guide.
  • What are four foods that you like to eat and are healthy for you, too? If possible, prepare one of these foods to share with your Lodge.
  • Make, buy or ask a Scouter for dehydrated food. Taste it as is (dehydrated), and then work with an adult to prepare it as if you were on a backpacking trip. Taste it again. What do you notice?
  • Talk to a Scout or Venturer Scout to find out what foods are good to take on a backpacking trip and why.
  • Work with older Scouting youth or with an adult to cook a meal over a campfire.
  • Make a trail mix that everyone in your Lodge could eat on a hike. (Check first for food allergies in your Lodge.)
  • Talk to a Scout about how he or she does dishes and deals with garbage when out backpacking.
  • Why is milk (or eggs) kept in the fridge and why don’t Scouts take a jug of milk (or a dozen eggs) when backpacking? Can you think of a way that Scouts could take milk (or eggs) in their backpacks?
  • Figure out ways to keep food cold or warm using everyday materials. What appliances and tools do we have around the house that help us heat and cool food?
  • Make a picnic for your family to take on a spring or summer outing. Have you included something from all the food groups listed in Canada’s Food Guide?
