Salmon balls, tea lights and wet wipes. These are just some of the things Sweden has advised every household to stock up on in the case of war.
Its government has sent leaflets to 4.7 million households explaining how to best prepare for various major crises.

These include terror and cyber-attacks, natural disasters, serious accidents and military conflicts.

Those who prepare improve “the ability of the country as a whole to cope with a major strain”, the booklet reads.

“Think about how you and people around you will be able to cope with a situation in which society’s normal services are not working as they usually do,” it adds.

The leaflet, which is entitled If Crisis or War Comes, has been distributed amid concerns over Russia’s military activities and the rise of terrorism and fake news.

Under a section called “home preparedness tips”, there is an eclectic list of some of the key items it says every household should have access to.
It stresses the importance of having non-perishable food “that requires little water or can be eaten without preparation”, such as:

  • Bread with a long shelf-life (eg tortillas and crackers)
  • Precooked lentils, beans, tinned hummus
  • Sardines and ravioli
  • Quick-cook pasta, rice, instant mashed potatoes
  • Prepared blueberry, rosehip soup, energy bars
