Family life is hectic! There’s always something going on, whether it’s an after-school club the kids need to get to or a family get together you’d forgotten about. No two weeks are the same, plans change and sometimes you just can’t control everything. You need flexibility when it comes to mealtimes and a meal delivery service is the way to get that - believe us, we’ve tried them all out. Meal delivery services - like Dinnerly and HomeChef - give families flexible subscriptions so you have the freedom to pause a week or reschedule for when it suits you. We’ve chosen the best on the market to find you great recipes, quality ingredients and most importantly, convenience, for dinner times you and your family will enjoy.
Meal delivery services might all do the same thing on the face of it - deliver you tasty, exciting meals for you to prepare at home - but the way they do this can be incredibly different from one another.
Some meal delivery services might offer you special plans for specific dietary preferences, such as vegan, paleo or gluten-free; others will usually have a classic plan and a vegetarian plan, while others might ask you if you'd like a low calorie or low carb plan, or even a pescatarian one! It really pays to do your research.
Having said that, all meal delivery services tend to work in the same way: each week, you choose the meals you'd like to make, order them and have them delivered straight to your door. You can then make your meals using the handy recipe cards and instructions included in the delivery box.
It depends who you ask - if you're used to buying a lot of food and having it all go to waste, then yes. If you're not sure how to make food for yourself or cook, then definitely yes. If you're used to eating out a lot, or ordering takes out, then meal delivery kits could definitely be a better, cheaper solution for you.
