Also, just a note: We already know fresh especially freshly home grown foods are best. So save the lecture on that.  ::)  ;)
Having a supply of canned goods set aside in a survival location could make the difference between your family surviving or not...There's always the possibility a group might have to stay underground and/or in an above ground shelter for quite awhile. Who knows what condition the soil will be in, during unexpected situations - or how long it will take to re-build that soil.
Forest fires, fires caused by neighboring building or plants exploding, fireballs, lightning strikes...also flooding... best to have a supply of goods in containers which are practically indestructible...
Well it's easier said than done, to actually prepare. Wishing all you the best of luck in doing this. Who knows what will happen and exactly when...Humans have always tried to prepare...

Shopping for survival food that the family, especially children will eat, has always been a challenge. The points you folks are making about nutrition are very important. I look especially for coupons and savings on canned salmon. Check labels for wild caught and indications of where it was processed. I will not buy anything processed in China or Thailand. Also labeling is changing with buyer demands and more companies are putting "ocean friendly" stamps, "non GMO" etc. I don't buy Atlantic salmon as I understand it's fish farmed and color treated to give the nice color. My grandmother used to can it and make pickled herring. Both worked well for us. The salmon served out of the can in chunks with chopped sweet onion, pepper, sliced black olives and a nice vinegarette is tasty. My grand dad would eat the whole thing himself - with a beer.

Perhaps this was mentioned in an earlier post, and if so, sorry.  Anyway, I've bought just a couple of the #10 cans of stuff, simply because it's really a lot of food for two people to eat, so I don't want to buy very many of them.  But the real reason I bought them was because of the cans themselves.  You can use the can as a mini heater!  You fill it with a roll of toilet paper or half a roll of paper towels, drench it in rubbing alcohol and light it.  It is supposed to last about 5 hours.  It may heat a small room, but I'm thinking about using them to keep my pipes from freezing.  Haven't had to try it out yet, thankfully, but there you go.

Ruth, I forgot to reply to your post. Some good ideas. I'd not heard of that canned salmon recipe - sounds yumm!

Steedy - thanks for the reminder on ways to provide emergency heating. Ideas like that for emergency heat could definitely save lives.

Yowbarb Note: I am trying to find totally reliable info on shelf life of foods and where to find the newer canned goods, etc. I cannot vouch for this fellow. I feel he knows what he is talking about. It is a place to start. He says keep canned goods in a cool dark place. He presents the foods he found which have the longest shelf life listed. He zeroes in on Chicken of The Sea Pink Salmon as the longest shelf life he has found, of commercial canned food.

Just a note...I know this had been posted in the past but try to set aside some baby food and supplies.
Fresh canned is best of course but  if you can stock up on regular baby foods, do it while there is time. There are organic ones and in general the baby foods are getting better, IMHO.
they come in little glass jars, so as with all glass goods, pack them well.
Fruits, veges, cereals, meats.
Baby formulas...have a variety some little ones cannot consume dairy.
Try to have a supply of human colostrum. I have no idea how long it lasts or how good the packaging is... not even finding it for some reason.
In your survival groups, hopefully there will be some little ones being born. Human mother's milk is best, but if not possible for some reason the colostrum can be a real life saver and helps the infant get off to a good start.

There are a fair number of people who do not need or do well on milk, but many do seem to need it.
I would recommend having a supply of milk set aside even if it is not primo.
Skim powdered,  skim whole such as Milkman; canned evaporated milk, sweetened condensed. Oh yes, powdered goat milk too. Goat whey if you can get it.
Yogurt culture ready to use as well.

Yowbarb Note: this article gave me a couple ideas I had not thought of... for sure would like to store dried seaweed etc.
Article doesn't seem to have a lot specific data on how long foods will last, but already know we know that will vary...Things like dried fruit, well they might have to be specially-packed inside containers with oxygen observers etc. Experts, PLS add your comments.

10 Cheap and Healthy Superfoods with a Long Shelf Life
Written by Daisy Whitbread, MScN
Powered by USDA Nutrition Data
Last Updated: April 26th, 2019

Looking for a variety of foods that have a long shelf life? Whether you live in a remote area, are going camping, or are looking to create a stockpile of food in case of a disaster, this list will help you.

Long lasting foods are typically dehydrated, cured, smoked, canned, or pickled. Great long lasting foods include dried beans, dried herbs, grains, dehydrated milk, dried fruits, cocoa powder, dried seaweed, canned foods, pickled foods, and coconut oil.

Below are the details on the top 10 cheap superfoods that will last for a long time.

1 Kidney Beans

Health Benefits: High in fiber, protein, minerals, and vitamins, most beans also contain all the essential amino acids.
How to store: Beans should be stored in an airtight container, and in a cool, dry, place. If stored properly, beans can last for 2-3 years before any nutrient degradation occurs.
Nutrition comparison of select beans and lentils.

2 Dried Herbs

Health Benefits: Dried herbs are low in calories, fat, cholesterol, sugar, and are high in everything else.
How to store: Dried herbs should be stored in airtight containers in a cool dry place. If stored properly they can last for over 2 years.
Nutrition comparison of select dried herbs.

3 Brown Rice

Health Benefits: Grains are a great source of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber, in addition to vitamins and minerals.
How to store: Grains should be stored in airtight containers in a cool dry place. If possible store them in a freezer. If properly stored, grains can last up to 30 years.
Nutrition comparison of select grains.

4 Dried Seaweed
Sushi Nori
Health Benefits: Dried Seaweed is the best source of iodine other than fortified salt. Low in calories and high in fiber it is a great inexpensive super food.
How to store: Store dried seaweed in a cool dry place, and keep it in an airtight container. If stored properly it will stay fresh for 6 months.

5 Dried Apricots


Health Benefits: High in vitamins and minerals, dried fruit can also be a great source of calories, carbs, and energy. Don't eat too many due to their high sugar content, and be sure to keep your teeth clean after eating them to prevent cavities.
How to store: Store dried fruits in an airtight container, and preferably in a cool dry place, away from light.
Nutrition comparison of select dried fruit.

6 Dehydrated Milk

Health Benefits: Dehydrated milk can be an important source of vitamin B12, calcium, and vitamin D (if it is added). Dried milk is also high in protein, carbs, and calories.
How to store: Dried milk should be stored in a cool dry place, and in an airtight container. If stored at room temperature, dried milk will start to go bad in as little as 6 months. Kept cool it can last for 3-6 years.

7 Cocoa Powder

Health Benefits: Cocoa powder can be paired with dried milk, and is a great source of iron and protein.
How to store: Like dried milk, store cocoa powder in a cool dry place.

8 Canned Foods

Health Benefits: Canned foods vary from fruits to veggies, fish, meats, beans, soups, etc. Look for canned foods without added sugars, sodium, or preservatives. However, canned foods which contain ascorbic acid (vitamin C) are recommended. Canned foods can be a great source of almost any nutrient, and can last for a very long time.
How to store: Store canned vegetables in an airtight container away from light and heat. Home canned vegetables should last about a year. For commercially canned products, check the date on the can. A general rule is they will last 2-5 years.

9 Pickled Foods

Health Benefits: Pickled foods can be a great source of fat (like olives), fiber, and vitamin K.
How to store: While pickled foods can last a long time, they typically don't last as long as canned foods. Keep them in a refrigerator or consume them in a couple weeks.
Nutrition Comparison for select pickled foods.

10 Coconut Oil

Health Benefits: While high in saturated fat, coconut oil may help prevent heart disease by reducing LDL oxidation.
How to store: Kept in a cool dark place, coconut oil will last for 2 years.

Good list Barb.  Solani had mentioned fractionated coconut oil as having a longer shelf-life.
