Why Nutrition is Important for Food Storage

Good nutrition is an essential factor to help keeping you healthy and active. When a disaster happens, many forget that a main part of staying alive is eating nutritious food and drinking water. Having poor nutrition can impair our wellbeing and cause our bodies to slow affecting our ability to problem solve, our overall alertness, and muscle response time. These are vital abilities needed to survive a disaster.
