Vitapod Lunchbox No.3

We all know planning meals can be difficult – between coming up with a meal idea to trying to find something healthy that your children will also eat. For this series, we wanted to do the heavy lifting for you – by coming up with a delicious lunch to go with a Vitapod drink and a nutrition breakdown to put your mind at ease!  

These meal inspirations have been created for the age group of 5-8 years old. Which means that our meal recommendations are designed to suite the daily fruit, vegetable, grains, protein, and dairy recommendations for children between the ages 5-8 by the USDA. For vegetables, this age group should have 1.5 to 2.5 cups a day. For fruit, 1 to 2 cups a day. For protein, 3 to 5.5 oz-equiv. For grains, 2 to 3 oz-equiv. And for dairy, 2.5 cups.
