Nurture Life
  • Submitted By Aimee
    I found this company when I was searching for baby food when my littlest was a few months old. I ended up signing up for all three of my kids and they love it! It certainly makes busy week nights after extra curricular activities much easier to manage since I don’t have to cook and bonus, they’re healthy! If you’re a working parent like me who places a high value on wholesome meals for your kids, I would definitely recommend!

    As a working mom that has a long commute and gets home late, just spending time with my daughter every night is critical to me. Not having to make her wait for me to make dinner by having meals I can just heat up allows me to focus more on her and our special one-on-one time together. It's been instrumental in creating a work/life balance for me.

    They send an email each week saying to make changes by Thursday, but when I had to cancel a weeks subscription and emailed Wednesday morning, they said sorry, I didn't allow enough time and would be charged for two orders that I will have to throw away. The food is only good for 24 hours after opening. It comes in large containers. My infant only eats 1/4 of container in 24 hours so much of the food goes to waste. The strawberry pure tastes like it comes from frozen, not fresh strawberries. The numeric flavored meals are too strong for both my baby and toddle. I tried giving it away, but my neighbors kids don't like it. Weird thing is, when I make my own for for my kids and add numeric, they love it. Some meals are good. Most my baby does not like. For example when I make salmon and carrots, my baby loves it, but won't eat their version of jared salmon and carrots. I throw a lot of it away each week. I'm better off making my own food.

    I tried the service to see if my kids would like it since my wife and I work a lot and don't have time to cook during the week. The site was pretty easy to use and the options they offered seem to be pretty good. The shipment came on time as I was told. However, the taste of the meals were not very good. The salmon dinner was ok and my kids both ate it. Later, we tried the nuggets, chicken, and mac/cheese dinners which were pretty horrible. The taste was dry, little taste, and smelled bad. No better than a frozen "tv" dinner. it is definitely not worth the $$. We are much happier with Home Chef Delivery service with provide excellent tasting food. Although you have to prepare and cook it, they taste really good and better than eating out. Oh, also, because I missed the cutoff date, I was forced to pay for another weeks of food. I emailed to let them know there was not enough time to try the food the whole week to give it a fair shot thus I did not cancel earlier. However, they said no and shipped the food anyways even though I told them it would go to waste.

    Small portions, I would recommend it for kids 4 and under. Very expensive, over $6 a meal. And hard to hear a word back from customer service. Also, read their FAQs carefully. I don't recommend. You're better off buying a frozen kids meal from the store. Same nutrition and lower price.

    Unfortunately there isn't enough nutrition in each meal. I don't want to give my toddler chocolate covered pretzels either. I was looking for ways to make very healthy food more appealing to my toddler, but this doesn't achieve that.
  • Submitted By Michelle Palmer on 10/24/2017
    My kids are eating healthy veggies they never ate before and that is good enough for me.
  • Submitted By Zoe Collins on 08/11/2017
    Everything is lovely, really, but i think it could be cheaper, I mean, it's kids portions, they could bring it down to 4 or 5 bucks easily.
