RE: Daily Nutrition values of Kickstart?

We are a family of 4, so generally the serving size is 1/4 of the meal. I aim for around 1500 -1600 calories a day. I include snacks not on the 21 day plan including a clementine, 12 almonds, sour cherries, baby carrots or a small palm-full of peanuts.
I am not trying to be number obsessive, it's more that if I don't eat something on the plan, knowing it's nutritional purpose helps me gauge what to replace it with. The app I use as a food journal lists the nutritional breakdown of what I've eaten during the day, handy if I've been too heavy on the nuts or had canned organic soup and pasta on the same day, showing itself in high fat or sodium amounts. I am concerned that I am not replacing adequately as my protein averages around 42g, and calcium 350mg.
If that is fine, I'll keep going as I am and not worry about it.
