Nurture Life Review: Kids Meal Delivery

I’m at the stage in life where I need to prepare 3 meals every night- all different. One meal for the baby, one for the preschooler and one for the adults. The baby is obviously eating purées and baby food while the preschooler still eats pretty bland food (heaven forbid anything is “spicy”). While the adults want flavor, variety and plenty of spice! I was so happy to discover Nurture Life– a meal delivery service for babies and kids! Check out my Nurture Life Review.

Nurture Life provides you with meals specifically designed for your child’s age and stage. Each meal is delivered fresh to your door in cool packaging and is ready to heat and serve. The meals are made with wholesome ingredients and organic whenever possible.

Nurture Life’s meals are freshly made and pediatric dietitian approved. They are ready is 3 minutes or less and costs start at $4.38 per meal for babies and $8.90 per meal for toddlers and kids.

I signed up right away for 8 months plus for the baby and 4-8 year olds for the preschooler.

I was able to select my meals from several options for both kids. I got 8 purées for baby Wyatt and 5 dinners for preschooler Cooper.  

For Cooper I chose:

  • Lamb and Beef Meatballs with Veggie & Feta Orzo
  • Mac & Cheese with Cauliflower
  • Chicken Meatballs with Pasta and Veggies (broccoli and cauliflower)
  • Frittata with Cinnamon French Toast
  • Teriyaki Salmon with Rice and Veggies

For a total of $52.

For Wyatt I ordered:

  • Banana Raisin and Oatmeal
  • Beef, Blueberry, Peach and Allspice
  • Turkey, Apple and Garnet Yam
  • Anjou Pear, Red Beet and Thyme
  • Pear, Apple, Quinoa and Cinnamon
  • BlackBerry, Apple and Chia
  • Butternut Squash
  • Golden Delicious Apple & Kale

For a total of $45.

Cooper’s favorite meals were the Chicken Meatballs with Pasta and Veggies, Teriyaki Salmon with Rice and Veggies and the Cinnamon French Toast. To be fair one of his regular meals is pasta with chicken and broccoli and salmon with rice so this wasn’t a huge stretch for him.

What I really liked though was the fact that the pasta had sauce (we are big fans of PLAIN PASTA here), the salmon had teriyaki and the cinnamon toast was new (and came with a frittata that was more reluctantly eaten but also included veggies!). In fact, one of my main goals in using Nurture Life is to expand Cooper’s palate a bit beyond really plain food. They have some amazing options including southwest style tacos, harissa chicken and chicken biryani. I haven’t quite ventured into these foods yet as I’m proceeding with caution, but I would love Cooper to give them a try.

Our upcoming meals for Coops will be: chicken bites with mashed yams and green beans, pork ragout, southwest chicken tacos (!), southwest sweet potato bowls and cheesy zucchini pomodoro. Fingers crossed!

Wyatt on the other hand loved everything. But as far as babies go, he pretty much eats whatever I give him so I didn’t expect it to be difficult. What I love about the baby food is that it is fresh and I don’t have to do the shopping, chopping, steaming, pureeing or cleaning. It’s already been done and is delivered ready to go.

What I don’t love is that at over $4 per jar, it is pretty darn expensive and compared to the packaged baby food, there isn’t that much difference. Plus, it doesn’t travel that well since it needs to be refrigerated and we are always on the move. So I’m planning on discontinuing Wyatt’s plan and sticking with HappyBaby, which has always been a hit.

Also one thing that I found SO FRUSTRATING is the order cutoff. The order cutoff for the following week is BEFORE your current week arrives and they don’t really seem to send you emails to remind you to change your order. So I ended up paying for one extra week of Wyatt’s meals and being stuck with some selections for Cooper that I wasn’t happy with. At over $100 including shipping, this wasn’t cool.

On the overall, I’m really happy with Cooper’s meals and I feel like he is really getting some fantastic nutrition and not just eating whatever I can manage to throw together. It has really freed up our summer evenings to enjoy longer days at the beach or the pool or just hanging out, which I love!

You can also easily skip a week and change meal options online–convenience I love!

The meals are specifically designed for babies, toddlers and kids ranging from 4-8 and 9-14 so it is portioned out accordingly. There is an option for every kid!

Check out Nurture Life here for your little one!
