If you have a baby, include formula and baby food.

 If you have pets, you will want food for them as well.  

Store food needs in waterproof containers, capable of also protecting against insects and mice. Use Steel garbage cans or plastic 5 gallon buckets. The vacuum sealed method is also very good.

If you are storing nuts or oatmeal, they smell and taste bad after a while, so they will need to be rotated.

For all storing of food, the rule is: use up the old and replace with the new.
