Camp Diets

Balanced Diet:
A balanced diet is frequently recommended by nutritionists, but what particular balance is best for men working in the field? How much of what type of food should be consumed on a daily basis? Is a high carbohydrate, low fat diet best? Or is a high fat, high protein, low carbohydrate program better? How much carbohydrate/protein/fat is considered high or low? Is the food pyramid the best way to determine a balanced diet? What about eating foods from the basic food groups (meat, dairy, grains, fruits and vegetables).

Camp Diets:
Equator Catering can put together 7 to 14 day nutritional, varied and interesting balanced diets for our customers. All diets are correctly balanced and based on the five main food groups. It is then easy for us to increase or decrease any of the food groups in our menus to allow for the physical aspect of up country / field work.

All menus are easily revised to follow more specific dietary requirements, and cultures. Equator Catering can produce menus that will suit all dietary cultures from local Ugandan fare to Asian and Oriental menus.
