    Higates flapjacks (from Home Bargains) solid as a brick packing 400+kcal each. If you buy them online by the case the price comes down to 30p each and are vegetarian friendly.

    No cook main meal one packet options

    You can rehydrate Magi noodles with cold water and eat them that way but the recipient would have to be desperate. Far kinder to break out the small meths stove or twig burner and boil a cup or two of water. If they need feeding that bad then they could probably murder a tea/coffee as well...
