Mac and cheese with crumbled beef jerky mixed in. Something sweet and desirable for dessert.

BPJ is certainly correct about considering the age/dislikes of your son.....

My tall thin son is twenty and he eats like a horse. He eats anything.

If your son eats like a horse, then he has the energy of a horse. Hope he can pack weight like a horse and carry enough food for himself...

For Breakfast:
I like taking 2 hardboiled eggs per person (boiled at home and ziplocked), 2 biscuits per person (baked at home and ziplocked), 1 or 2 packs of instant grits or instant Oatmeal(per person), raw bacon for cooking if water is not an issue, or a canned meat such as SPAM (1 can per meal).

For Lunch:
I no longer carry a specific meal for lunch since I/we have never slowed down enough to prepare and eat a lunch. I/we carry a couple of different Trail Mixes, energy bars, cheese and crackers to eat at lunchtime and in between meals.

For Supper:
I will normally carry an MRE or a can of (Beef Stew, Chicken & Dumplings, Chili, etc) aka: C-Ration and some crackers.

Breakfast normally stays the same but I/we do something different for each Supper that we are out.

For a low-prep single overnighter, our family usually ends up with these as the final contenders:

SNACKS:
-crackers, cheese and jerky/pepperoni
-celery with peanut butter
-apples
-grapes (frozen in a ziplock bag the night before)

LUNCH:
-PB/ hot dogs/cheese in wraps (Condiment up the meat and cheese for more flavour! A mini can of salsa and/or jalapanos, sauce/ketchup/mustard from fast food places work well. Take-out jam and honey work well with the PB.)
*OR*
-can of baked beans or stew

DINNER:
-KD with hotdogs/pepperoni/tuna and sweet snap peas if they're in season. (Works with rice too! Make the powdered cheese sauce with powdered milk and margarine. Marg pepper, hot sauce, etc. from fast food places)
-cucumber and baby carrots

DESSERTS:
-marshmallows or some other roasted treat
-choco chip cookies
-peanut m&ms

BREAKFAST:
-COFFEE
-granola, or instant oatmeal, made with hot chocolate and raisins or dried cherries/cranberries

Simple is ramen with a meat packet, and finish with instant oatmeal.

a MRE meat pack, like the meat loaf in the photo, along with about a cup of instant rice is a real filler and easy to make.heat the water for the rice and while it's getting ready drop the MRE in the boiling water.i mix in a few spoons of butter to the whole thing to give more taste to the rice.
