But all the muffins are amazing especially the double chocolate ones and I really like the waffles or french toast with an egg on top. Because eggs are part of the power fuel foods, I combine them with the breakfast! I am such a carb girl. So the pastas and the frozen quesadillas or the melts are my favorite. I want real food, even if the bars make me full. That being said, the bars are great for being on the run!
Several times they have kept me from picking up a drive-thru meal or something when I had one stashed in my purse. I love all the pastas! Some of the frozen meals are really nice as well because they have fresh veggies, which I love. Here are my faves:. Any of the pizzas some are frozen, some not. The hardest part for me is choosing between snack and dessert.

All opinions are as always still my own! A sedentary 6- to 8-year-old might need just 1, calories, but if he's very active, his energy needs might go up to 1, calories. Nine- to year-olds need anywhere from 1, to 3, calories daily to support their energy needs -- depending on size and activity level.
Larger, athletic kids should aim for the higher range. Each day in a seven-day meal plan should include a balance of foods to ensure adequate nutrient intake. If your child needs fewer calories, aim for the lower-serving range. A child needs between 4 and 10 ounces of grains -- half of which should be whole grains -- a day. Double these veggie servings for kids eating 3, calories per day. For proteins, like meats, fish and poultry, plan for between 3 and 7 ounces of lean protein, such as fish and poultry, daily.
A healthy week's worth of meals includes breakfasts, such as whole-grain toast with nut butter and apple slices; oatmeal with berries and milk; scrambled eggs with diced bell pepper and percent orange juice; or whole-grain pancakes with low-fat yogurt. Serve protein-filled hardboiled eggs with a whole-wheat bagel, or blend a smoothie using milk and frozen, unsweetened fruit.
For a quick and easy meal, pour milk over whole-grain, low-sugar cereal. Lunches might include fresh turkey or roast beef on whole grain bread; low-sodium vegetable soup; a whole-grain pita with hummus; peanut butter on whole wheat bread with bananas; or low-fat cheese with whole-grain crackers.
Serve carrot and celery sticks, grape tomatoes, a handful of grapes, low-fat yogurt or unsalted almonds on the side or as snacks. Skip soda and juice drinks -- serve water instead. For dinner, transform kid-friendly favorites to fit your healthy plan. Make pizza with a whole-wheat crust and top with veggies and low-fat cheese.
Add steamed broccoli to whole-wheat spaghetti; Grill, instead of fry, chicken and serve with a baked potato topped with mild salsa. Wrap lean seared flank steak in a whole-wheat tortilla, and offer avocado dip and baked chips on the side.
