When asked about how they will obtain food in the wild, most people say the three obvious things – hunt/trap game, fishing (for fish!) and forage for wild edibles.
This is basically sound thinking, but depending on location, you can diversify and make things much easier.
For example we have already covered eating wild bird eggs , but today we are talking crayfish. Crayfish are often overlooked as a survival food (or day-to-day food for that matter), but in many places our rivers are teaming with them and they are actually very easy to catch, prepare and cook. It is also great fun to do with the kids.
