Family meal delivery services work in the same way as similar providers. They include a weekly selection of pre-made meal prep or pre-measured ingredients for home delivery. People choose their meals and request how many servings they need each week. There are options to avoid certain foods or tailor meals to suit dietary requirements.
For busy families, planning, shopping, and preparing healthful, home-cooked meals is difficult. With this in mind, some may eat out or order takeout for convenience.
These meal options can save time and potential stress. However, they may lead to people consuming meals that are high in calories but low in nutrition. The American Diabetes Association say restaurant meals are usually larger and contain higher amounts of fat, sugar, and salt than home-cooked foods.
Meal delivery kits and healthful ready-to-eat meals may help bridge the gap between convenience and the time people invest in cooking.
Another benefit of meal kits is that they encourage families to cook together while providing children with an opportunity to learn more about food.
Meal kits help people save time as the ingredients arrive pre-prepared. If the meals are ready-to-eat, people only need to heat them up.
Other meal delivery benefits include:
Opportunities to learn new recipes
Opportunities To try Different DietsPotential Discounts When People Order More Meals
Flexible Subscription Options
Organic and sustainable food sources
All these benefits apply to grocery-bought food if a person plans their meals in advance and sets time aside each week for cooking.
