  • DofE Approved Activity Provider Lupine Adventure has produced a great series of flash cards to help participants plan expedition menus in a fun way. These cards have been developed to help teach expedition menu planning. There are over 50 cards with different common food types taken on expeditions. Students can use the cards to compare the benefits of different foods and lay them out to make a menu for the day. There are blank cards at the end if you wish to add your own.
