I’m always on the lookout to cooking simply for my family, while also trying to find new favorites that are both nutrient-dense and kid-friendly. Meal kit delivery services have continued to grow in number and popularity, perhaps even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recently, I opted to try some products from Hello Fresh. I received two meals at no charge and was not additionally compensated for this review. All opinions are my own.
Who They Are
Hello Fresh provides meal kit delivery to suit your specific needs. You can select from flexible plans, whether you are a vegetarian, a pescatarian, looking to lose weight, or feed picky toddlers. The company especially touts their variety in meals, flexibility in deliveries, and ample protein with each meal.
The six major plans offered by Hello Fresh include:
- Meat & Veggies
- Family Friendly
- Quick and Easy
- Calorie Smart
You can also choose to have either three, four, or five recipes per week, for either two or four people. You can make your selection from the weekly menu, which offers a great variety to suit your preferences.
According to the company website, the cost varies depending on the particular selections, with meals starting as low as $7.49. You can pause your meal kit delivery service if you don’t need it one week, and you can also cancel your subscription at any time.
My family and I tried out the Buffalo Chicken Tacos and the Tex-Mex Pork Enchilada Bowls. Both meals were flavorful, easy to prepare, and kid-friendly. I agree that the company does not skimp on the protein, which is a huge plus!
I thought the recipes were very easy to follow, so much so that I even multitasked effectively, making both at the same time, for a mix and match Mexican-style feast on a busy weekday evening.
I like the make-your-own plate approach at dinner time, especially since we all have slightly different eating preferences. I eat low-carb to help manage my type 1 diabetes and it was easy to avoid the unwanted carbs, by focusing on the slaw, veggies, and protein, while also substituting my own low-carb wraps for the traditional ones.
The food didn’t just please the adults but was also toddler-approved. The meals had just the right amount of spice – bold enough to be flavorful but not too overwhelming for a child.
Overall, I was impressed with the company’s services. The variety of options (you can choose from a menu of over twenty different meals every week!) are especially great, as you can mix and match for the various preferences in your family. I really appreciated how easy-to-prepare the meals were, too! I have sampled products from various similar companies in the past, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hello Fresh to anyone looking to save some time in food prep, while eating well, and also minimizing food waste!
