How much protein should my child eat every day?
It all depends on your child’s age, gender and weight, but a rule of thumb is that, for a child over age three, 10–30% of the calories that are eaten should come from protein. On the average, this means about 19 grams of protein every day for children aged 4–9, and 34 grams of protein for kids aged 9–13. During the teen years, boys need about 52 grams every day, and girls need about 46 grams every day.

What’s in—and not in—Lorissa’s Kitchen products?
We strive to have the cleanest ingredient list possible:

  • 100% grass-fed beef and chicken and turkey raised without antibiotics
  • No added growth hormones, nitrites or nitrates, or MSG
  • Gluten-free and keto-friendly
What is grass-fed beef and why is it important?
Cows that eat only grass and other foraged foods produce grass-fed beef. This method is better for each animal’s well-being as well as for land management when compared to conventional beef produced by mostly grain-fed cows. Many studies have shown grass-fed beef is also leaner and higher in vitamin D, omega-3s, and other key nutrients. Plus, many people also prefer its taste.
Are any of your products gluten-free?
All of Lorissa’s Kitchen protein snacks are gluten-free.
What does it mean when chicken and turkeys are raised without antibiotics?
Antibiotics are sometimes given to farm animals as a preventive measure, or to treat infections or prevent an illness from spreading. We only use chicken and turkey raised without antibiotics, because overuse is leading to antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, and work with farmers to find other ways to ensure chicken, turkey and cows stay healthy.
What is the shelf life of Lorissa’s Kitchen products?
All of Lorissa’s Kitchen protein snacks have a 12-month shelf life, unopened. Once opened, Lorissa’s Kitchen strips and cuts should be consumed within three days or stored in a refrigerator to preserve freshness. Lorissa’s Kitchen beef sticks should be consumed the same day they are opened.
Are Lorissa’s Kitchen products nut/tree nut allergen-friendly?
The law requires strict labeling of the “Big 8” allergens: Milk, eggs, fish, Crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans. If these items or any protein derived from them are in our product, they have to be listed on the ingredient declaration.
