Checkboxes and Multiple Fields in wp_postmeta - How to Display Values on a Post?

  1. I've tried searching but haven't turned anything up, so apologies if I missed a previous question.

    I have a checkbox field that allows people to choose multiple meal options (breakfast, lunch, supper, etc.) which maps to a custom_field "meal-options". How do I then output all the options they might choose? Right now my code just spits out the first one. I know I'm missing some sort of loop but not sure how to do it properly.

    <h4>Meal Options Included</h4>
    <?php $mealoptions = get_post_meta($post->ID,'meal-options', true);
    if ($mealoptions == 'false') {
    echo "Not at this time.";
    } else {
    echo get_post_meta($post->ID,'meal-options', true);

    This is obviously part of a larger custom post type file.
