Finding the time to cook healthful meals can be difficult for busy families, especially those with younger kids. Kid-friendly meal delivery services may be a suitable option for many of those with less time to spend in the kitchen.
Meal delivery services vary according to the brand. Some offer ingredients and recipes to make at home, and others deliver ready-made meals. People can make a choice based on how much time they have, their cooking skills, and the service’s cost.
Additionally, as these services provide only the necessary quantities of ingredients for each recipe, they may help reduce food wastage.
How does it work?
Typically, people select recipes from a weekly menu to suit their preferences and dietary requirements. They can do this either online or via an app. Usually, people can also customize the recipes to swap ingredients or make specific changes, such as doubling up on protein.
Most companies offer plans according to a certain number of meals per day or week and the number of people they need to feed. Some brands provide meals tailored to particular ages — for example, toddlers or teens.
The company then deliver the measured ingredients or meals along with instructions on how to prepare the recipes.
Children’s meals should be nutritionally balanced, which people can usually achieve by varying their foods and opting for healthful options. By ensuring that their children eat plenty of nutritious foods, limit their intake of fatty and sugary foods, and get enough physical activity and sleep, parents and caregivers can help them maintain a moderate weight.
