Well no, it's a perfect opportunity to let them experience " eat what you're given or go hungry."
I survived 7 years of boarding school, I can tell you from experience they will eat.

Today I picked up my son went home after drill and realized he never had any of my dehydrated foods , and I was tired so seemed a perfect time to just heat up some mountain house beef stew for us both.
Boy tore it up, hes gonna need a bath but ate a good portion.
So for those of you with kids have you introduced them to the food you have set aside for an emergency?
If not why not?
I know part of the reason is he didnt need a high sodium content at his age, and part waiting for him to be good enough with a spoon to eat on his own.
It is good I think for all of us to try any dehydrated foods, canned foods, or preserved foods periodically to make sure we can still eat it.
