When I took over a SM for Troop 404 (Middleburg, Fl.) I was at first amused
to see the number of scouts who lived on canned meals and sodas.
I met with my ASM's and we instituted a crash program to teach these young
men how to cook.
After a reasonable amount of time, when we camped, I would provide a menu to
the troop and they were required to prepare those items. Each patrol was
judged by an adult member of the troop (who helped out with the food cost
like any other scout).
Needless to say, I have banned any canned food as well as soda from the menu
on our campouts.
