For a Quick Fix: Hello Fresh

A box of fresh ingredients along with easy-to-read menu cards delivered to your door? Doesn’t sound like a bad deal to us. And all of the menus contain dishes with less than 30 minutes of cook time so you can spend more time with the little one. All options are packed with locally sourced (they are based out of NYC) ingredients and recipes that will suit both kids and adults, like mango glazed chicken and cheesy pork enchiladas.

How it works: View the menu for the week and select three meals that fit your fancy. Portions are fit for 2 or 4, depending on the sizes you choose. Each box is shipped out on Wednesday and includes the 3 meals you choose.

Cost: For 2 portions of the 3 weekly meals it’ll cost you $69 plus delivery.

Delivery area: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
