For New Moms: Freshology

If you dream of someone preparing your daily meal plan, leaving you just the job of heating up and plating, this is the meal delivery service for you. The Fresh Mommy program from Freshology is specifically geared towards new moms (starting in the third trimester) and really considers the needs of motherhood (like extra calories if you are nursing) and adjusts meals accordingly. Expect everything from breakfast to dinner, and snacks to dessert. The personalized order form takes into account when you had the baby (or will have), if you are nursing and how much you plan to exercise. Expect dishes like basil-crusted salmon with green beans and red rice, and feta and English pea frittata with fresh fruit and chicken apple sausage.

How it works: Sign onto the website to select how many days you’re interested in (14 day minimum; 10 days if you call) as well as dietary preferences and allergies. If you prefer to customize even further, you can call Freshology directly.

Cost: It works out to be just over $800 (includes all daily meals) for a two-week time period.

Delivery area: Entire U.S., with special customization available if you live in Southern California where they are based
