Each meal pack contains a sachet of delectable flavoring mix such as chicken arroz caldo, beef congee, fish flakes, champorado (chocolate), and ginataan (coconut milk).
The savory meals contain a dried vegetable mix of squash, alogbate or malabor spinach, camote or sweet potato tops, and or jute leaves. The ginataan pack contains dehydrated fruit mix of orange, sweet potato, banana, and mango.
