I'd do one of two things (or both).

1. I'd contact the manufacturer, online or via phone or email. Most packages or sites have a "contact us" link.

2. I'd guesstimate, based on the individual components. i.e., 5 oz chicken, 2 oz carrots, 3 tbs alfredo sauce, etc. Livestrong can give you good generic calorie counts for sauces, etc., if you can't find them on spark.

I use option #2 when I'm at restaurants, and it has been close enough. Remember, you can't make "perfect" the enemy of "good." Go with "good" and know that over time it will probably average out.

Good luck!

I eat the healthy choice or smart ones frozen dinners all the time. Here's my dilemma...I eat the meat and vegetables, but not the pasta or dessert (if included). How do I plug that into my food log for the day, and it be somewhat correct?
