Full Nutrition™
Full Nutrition™ is all you need
What we believe in
We believe it should be simple to give your body the nutrients it needs every day. We believe in the power of food to boost energy levels, provide clarity of body and mind, and improve overall health and longevity. We believe in providing balanced, nutrient dense meals to help you live, look and feel your best.
About Full Nutrition™
Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is a measure outlined by Health Canada that quantifies the average daily dietary intake sufficient to meet the nutrient requirement of nearly all (97%-98%) healthy people in a specific age group. Full Nutrition™ means meeting the RDA for all nutrients, every single day.

Too often, people struggle to combine the right foods and ingredients necessary to meet the RDAs for all nutrients. After all it requires tracking over 30 different nutrients every day to reach Full Nutrition™. Fed makes it a priority to source, plan and prepare the ingredients and foods that will meet 100% of your RDAs each day. Only one company offers Full Nutrition™ meals — Fed.
Why Full Nutrition™ is important
Full Nutrition™ is about providing your body with food that nourishes. Whether it’s getting through the day or planning for the future, your body needs the right nutrients in the right quantities to function optimally.

Our food industry isn’t always the most transparent. Information can be misleading, challenging to navigate and just plain overwhelming. There is often uncertainty about the nutritional content of your food. We research and plan extensively to ensure people like you don’t have to worry about your daily nutrition. Key ingredients, consumed in the right quantities, will help you meet your nutrient requirements, allowing you to live a longer, more active life.
Nutrients and Benefits
Fed considers over 30 nutrients in every meal. Here’s a breakdown of these nutrients and their benefits.
Vitamin A
Vitamin A is essential for eye health and important for the immune system. It can be found in both plant and animal foods. Plant foods provide a precursor of vitamin A called carotenoids which our bodies must convert into Vitamin A. On the other hand, animal foods provide preformed vitamin A. Both plant and animal sources of Vitamin A undergo activation in the body.  It’s best to get Vitamin A from food to avoid getting too much of it through supplements.
B Vitamins
B Vitamins (includes: Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12) are water soluble vitamins with a range of uses in the body. They are important in normal neurological development and functioning, DNA synthesis, protein synthesis, and the formation of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets  . The bioavailability of many B vitamins is higher in animal foods, but it’s still possible to get all your B vitamins with a plant-based diet. Excess quantities of these vitamins aren’t stored (they are excreted in urine) so it’s important to consume adequate amounts on a daily basis.
Vitamin C and Vitamin E
These vitamins are important antioxidants that protect cells from damage, and assist in tissue growth and repair. They’re also important factors in fighting disease. These two nutrients are best obtained through food and need to be consumed daily as neither are made in our bodies.
Vitamin K
Vitamin K is an important part of blood clotting. There is also some evidence to show that it can also contribute to maintenance of bone density and calcium balance . Vitamin K can be found in both plant and animal foods, but is most abundant in dark leafy vegetables. Regularly eating varied diet, rich in dark green vegetables, will provide adequate amounts of vitamin K.
Vitamin D
Vitamin D enhances calcium absorption, contributing to the development and maintenance of strong, dense bones. It has a role in supporting our immune system and can be made in our bodies after exposure to UV light. However, for those living in colder climates where sun exposure may be minimal due to heavy clothing or limited sun exposure for much of the year, it is important to get vitamin D from food or supplements. It can be challenging to get adequate vitamin D from the regular foods we consume, making full nutritionô meals a valuable option.
Iron
Iron is essential for the development of healthy, functioning blood cells. Blood cells require iron to transport oxygen throughout the body. Without adequate iron your energy levels can suffer. Iron can be found in both plant and animal foods, however the type of iron in each food differs. Plants and enriched foods contain what is called “non-heme” iron. Animal based products contain “heme” iron. Heme iron is more efficiently absorbed and used by our bodies. However, you can improve your bodies’ absorption and use of non-heme iron by a) consuming heme iron foods at the same time as non-heme foods or b) consuming vitamin C at the same time you consume non-heme iron. Fed makes a point of including iron rich plant foods, such as green vegetables, nuts and fortified grains, with a source of vitamin C in all meals.
Calcium
Calcium has a significant role in bone and teeth health. It’s important for muscle contraction, nerve function, and blood clotting. Bones are the storage unit for calcium. If we don’t get enough calcium in our diet, the calcium we need for other functions, like muscle contraction, comes from our bones. Low calcium intake over the long term can lead to weak and brittle bones, increasing the risk of bone breaks and fractures. In order to prevent this, we fill our meals with calcium rich foods like chia seeds, leafy greens, cheese and yogurt.
Zinc, Selenium and Copper
These trace minerals are antioxidants and have a multitude of different roles in the body. They all participate in maintaining a healthy, functioning immune system. Selenium may also play a role in keeping the thyroid healthy. Copper helps the body absorb iron and form blood cells. Zinc participates in many different enzyme reactions including ones involved in wound healing and protein synthesis. Each mineral can be found in a variety of foods and we only need a little per day.
Magnesium, Phosphorus
Magnesium and phosphorus are essential minerals that allow the body to process food into energy. Magnesium alone is involved in more than 300 different enzyme interactions in the body. Phosphorous can be found in every cell in your body. Taken together, they are also important for bone health. We can get these minerals from a variety of foods, and our digestive system and kidneys regulate the amount of these minerals in our body.
Sodium, Chloride
These minerals are necessary for proper cell functioning. They’re usually ingested together in the form of NaCl (sodium chloride or table salt) and are found abundantly in our foods. It is much more likely to get too much of these minerals than too little. Too much sodium can elevate your blood pressure which, over time, can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease and/or kidney disease. At Fed, we limit our sodium content. The total sodium of all three meals will not have more than 2300mg per day, although most days are well below that target.
Potassium
Potassium is another mineral, also an electrolyte, ubiquitous in our bodies and in our foods. It is important for blood pressure control and muscle contraction, including playing a key role in proper heart function . Potassium levels in our bodies are regulated by the kidneys. This mineral plays an important role in heart function. Eating a varied diet of fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy and whole grains — as provided by Fed — can provide adequate amounts of potassium daily. Therefore, it is NOT recommended to take a potassium supplement.
Carbohydrates and Fibre
Our body’s main source of energy is carbohydrates. They’re found most abundantly in foods such as grains (wheat, rice, barley), starchy vegetables (potatoes, yams, peas), legumes and fruit. These foods also contain fibre, which is indigestible by our bodies but very useful in slowing digestion, prolonging satiety and promoting regularity. There are two main types of fibre: insoluble and soluble fibre. Insoluble fibre, which helps move things along the digestive tract, is found in whole grains and vegetables. Soluble fibre is found in legumes, oats and barley, and can play a part in regulating blood cholesterol and/or blood sugar.
Fats
Fat (including saturated and healthy fats) is needed for proper cell function, hormone regulation, energy balance and the transportation of certain vitamins. Fats are the most energy dense food available. Different types of fat — saturated and unsaturated — are processed differently by your body. While both types of fat are part of a healthy diet, too much saturated fat over a long period of time can negatively impact your heart health. Fed aims to keep saturated fats under 22g per day, which is around 10% of your total caloric intake. The remainder of fat in our meals comes from unsaturated fats like omega-3s!

Saturated Fat
Fat (including saturated and healthy fats) is needed for proper cell function, hormone regulation, energy balance and the transportation of certain vitamins. Fats are the most energy dense food available. Different types of fat — saturated and unsaturated — are processed differently by your body. While both types of fat are part of a healthy diet, too much saturated fat over a long period of time can negatively impact your heart health. Fed aims to keep saturated fats under 22g per day, which is around 10% of your total caloric intake. The remainder of fat in our meals comes from unsaturated fats like omega-3s!
Trans Fat
Trans fats are a form of fat that can increase your risk of heart disease. Many animal products (such as meat and cheese) will contain very small amounts of trans fat since they are naturally made in the animal. These are the only trans fats you will see in our meals. Fed does not add any trans fats or use any products containing partially hydrogenated oils (which give rise to trans fat).
Sodium
These minerals are necessary for proper cell functioning. They’re usually ingested together in the form of NaCl (sodium chloride or table salt) and are found abundantly in our foods. It is much more likely to get too much of these minerals than too little. Too much sodium can elevate your blood pressure which, over time, can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease and/or kidney disease. At Fed, we limit our sodium content. The total sodium of all three meals will not have more than 2300mg per day, although most days are well below that target.
Cholesterol
Cholesterol, while often vilified, is essential for building cells and producing important body hormones. Although high blood cholesterol is bad for your heart, most recent evidence has shown that in healthy individuals, dietary cholesterol plays a minimal impact in blood cholesterol levels and will not likely impact your heart health . Cholesterol can only be found in animal products like meat, seafood, eggs and dairy product. These foods also have important nutrients like protein and calcium. It’s important you get 100% of your required nutrients every day, so we keep cholesterol as low as possible while also ensuring you meet your recommended daily intake.
Added Sugar
Many healthy foods contain naturally occurring sugars, such as fruit, grains, and dairy products. However, sugar can also be added to foods for flavour. Added sugars come in the form of granulated sugar, brown sugar, syrups, honey, agave, corn sweeteners and more. Too much added sugar can contribute to obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses . Any sugar added to Fed meals is limited to less than 5% of total daily calories [this is much lower than the current World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation of less than 10% of total daily calories].
Disclaimer
Fed provides you with 100% or more of Health Canada’s set Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for each nutrient. Some nutrients don’t have RDAs including, but not limited to, Manganese, Potassium, Pantothenic Acid, and Vitamin K. While nutrient targets for these nutrients are also dictated by Health Canada, they are based on what is called an Adequate Intake (AI), which Fed doesn’t attempt to meet. Data about the content of Biotin, Choline, Chromium, Fluoride, Iodine and Molybdenum in food is not available and therefore not tracked by Fed.
Impact of nutrition on health
We’ve all heard about the food pyramid and seen the %Daily Value labels on many food and beverage products. However, the majority of people don’t have the time and energy to consume a diet that fully addresses their nutrition needs. As a result, malnutrition is prevalent, even in the industrialized world. We are over fed and under nourished. In Canada, 5 in 10 women and 7 in 10 men in Canada have energy intakes that exceed their energy needs, which can lead to an increased prevalence of those who are overweight and obese. Yet, 76% of the Canadian population is estimated to have a deficiency in Vitamin D.
Through calorie control and nutrient tracking, Fed meals help reduce the risk of diet-related, non-communicable diseases — one of the leading causes of death in Canada.
