Where Every Family Matters

22 Meal Kit Godsends for Dinners This Fall

They just may be the best thing to happen to busy moms and dads in a long time. Long live the dinner meal kits!

Eat healthy, embrace your experience then share a pic of the sumptuous dinner you just prepared! You’re a meal-kit mom! The 2.2 billion dollar industry has wormed its way into your busy household and saved your hectic dinner hour. Oh wait, it hasn’t made it to your kitchen yet? Haven’t you looked into your crystal ball yet? That’s right: One peek and it’s all there: after-school activities, driving kids all over town, oh and those wails of “What’s for dinner?” coming from the back seat. Even if you’re the most organized mom (or the world’s greatest cook), you can easily get worn down by the after-school-and-dinner routine.
    Be ready this fall by planning ahead for dinner now. Consider adding a delivery service so you can get your family healthy, tasty meals with minimal stress on your part.
     Most meal kit services are subscription based and work fairly simply. You pick how many people to feed, the number of meals you want per week, the preferred delivery day and your food preferences. You can look forward to fresh ingredients, easy to follow recipes (for the most part!), quick prep and portioned servings.
