When choosing your meal delivery service, there are a few things that you should consider to pick the best service for your household.
Check specific plans: If there are any ingredients you need to avoid due to allergies or specific dietary requirements, make sure there's a plan that suits your needs.
Compare pricing: Your budget is important when choosing which service fits you the best. Prices vary and you have to consider shipping fees and any add-on costs.
Determine the level of prep: Choose the traditional meal kits where you’ll get the ingredients and you’ll prep and make it yourself or find options that do some of the prep work for you.
Find the right serving size: Each service has different serving amounts to fit different sized families. The most common are two or four servings, but you can find other amounts.
