Definately, preparing any kind of prepackaged food does not fulfill the
Freeze dried food from camping stores is extremely expensive and it is
pretty simple to make your own dehydrated food meals from ingredients
available in most grocery stores without having to dehydtate the raw
foods yourself. This is an advanced topic, tho and probably not suitable
for first class work. I would not permit a Scout to work on the cooking
requirement on a backpacking trip unless he were prepared to take the
advanced challenge of creating the meals from separately obtained dried
ingredients rather than simply opening a package and reading and
following the instructions.
First class should mean first class, not well, I guess that's good enough.
