"dads inspired by K rations"

K rations were food rations used by United States mobile troops during World War II. Designed in 1941, by Dr. Ancel Keys, a University of Minnesota physiologist, they were intended to be used for a maximum of 15 meals before supplementation or replacement with other rations. However, in practice their use was more widespread than this, and the K ration was criticised for the insufficient calories and vitamin content it provided to soldiers. The K ration came in a box with three inner boxes for breakfast, dinner and supper and included foods that could be preserved such as canned meat, cereal bars and biscuits, as well as cigarettes, toilet paper and chewing gum.
