How to use BP-5™ emergency rations
BP-5™ emergency rations are the preferred tool when disasters strike.
One box of BP-5 (9 bars) is enough for one adult for one day. BP-5™ can be eaten as a biscuit direct from the pack, or crumbled into water and eaten as a porridge. To make a porridge use 200 ml of boiled drinking water per bar. For each bar of BP-5™ at least 250 ml of drinking water intake should be available. For children between 6 and 24 months of age BP-5™ should preferably be given as porridge.
If no other food is available, the below table could be used as an approximate guideline for distribution*.
