At Revolution Foods, our meals are designed to align with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans by including fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean protein and limiting levels of sodium (salt), sugar, and unhealthy fats—saturated fat, trans fat and dietary cholesterol. In addition, our meals meet the USDA reimbursement standards for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). All of our lunches include the five food groups, including the grain and vegetable subgroups. We portion our meals using NSLP recommendations. The NSLP requires that lunches meet a daily caloric range based on the average for a 5-day week. These ranges are 550-650 calories for K-5, 600-700 calories for 6-8, and 750-850 calories for 9-12. All of our meals fall within the required ranges and meet the average for a 5-day week.
