If the notion of having to think of yet another meal to make for dinner (that your picky kids will actually eat), combined with the thought of braving the grocery store, leaves you feeling exhausted—don’t worry, we’ve got you. We’ve found six meal delivery services that are geared towards kids. Order these meals and have at least one task taken off your plate for the week.
No time for the chopping and cooking that most meal kits require, but don’t want to turn to the sad microwave meals in the frozen food aisle? Yumble Kids is the answer. This meal delivery service offers the convenience of heat and eat meals, but puts a fresh, nutritious, and eco-friendly spin on them. Let your kids pick dishes off the weekly menu or save time by choosing a curated box (like the one for picky eaters). The food will be delivered in 100 percent recyclable packaging and is accompanied by fun surprises like sticker packs or cards.
Whether you have a baby, toddler, big kid, or all of the above, Little Spoon has a meal delivery service for you. Little Spoon’s Baby Blends offers fresh, organic baby foods that are made without preservatives, additives, or heat-processing—and come in fun seasonal flavors (like pumpkin spice). Toddlers and kids will love Little Spoon’s Plates, a rotating selection of heat-and-eat healthy meals that are packed with hidden vegetables and free from preservatives.
Is your baby eating better than you do? With a subscription to Yumi, the answer might be “yes”. The gluten-free, dairy-free, GMO-free, sugar-free, and preservative-free food is made in collaboration with celebrity chefs (like the current mashup with Chef Malcolm Livingston II, former head pastry chef of Noma and WD~50). The result? Tasty and nutritious purees and finger foods for ages five months to five years.
Designed by a neurosurgeon, Cerebelly’s mission is to give babies and kids the optimum nutrition for brain development. Take the easy online quiz to determine which purees and smart bars are right for your kids, and get a personalized box based on their needs and preferences. Or, build your own box to pick exactly what you get in each shipment.
Looking for a fun activity rather than a meal kit? Sign up for a Baketivity subscription, and you’ll get sent a new baking box every month. The boxes contain pre-measured ingredients, an illustrated recipe card, a shopping list (for any fresh ingredients you may need), games to play while your treat bakes, and even a hat and apron for the tiny chef.
You might think of HelloFresh as an adult meal delivery service, but they have a family-friendly option that’s great for kids. Featuring picky-eater approved recipes like tacos or chicken, the dishes are easy to make and can be on the table in around 30 minutes.
