We’ve also designed our variety of meals to satisfy any palate, from your pickiest eater to a flavor explorer.

  • How does Nurture Life’s subscription service work?

    Nurture Life’s subscription service offers convenient weekly delivery of meals that meet your family’s preferences. We understand your family’s needs can change, so we’ve also made it easy to skip weeks, pause or cancel your subscription.

  • What are Nurture Life’s nutritional standards?

    With dietitian-designed meals, we have 5 exceptionally high nutrition standards and commitments for our meals: nutritionally balanced; a full serving of veggies; real, clean ingredients; fresh, never frozen; and make nutritious delicious (because healthy should still be tasty!). Our meals are also always free of nitrates, high fructose corn syrup, trans fats and artificial colors and flavors.

    For more information on Nurture Life’s nutritional standards, check out A Complete Guide to Nurture Life’s Nutrition.

  • How do you prepare Nurture Life meals?

    No prep work necessary! Simply heat our Toddler, Kid, Teen & Adult Heatable Meals and Shareables in the microwave for a meal ready in less than 2 minutes, or place them in an oven-safe container and heat them in the oven. Our Finger Foods can be enjoyed hot or cold, but if you do heat them up, they should be transferred to a heat-safe container. Enjoy our Portable Meals fresh from the package, no heating necessary!

    For full meal info including use by dates, heating instructions, nutrition facts and ingredients, just check the packaging!

  • Does Nurture Life’s menu change?

    Our menu offers 20 Toddler, Kid and Teen & Adult Heatable Meals, 5 Portable Meals, 11 Finger Foods and 4 Shareables. This mix provides your family a variety of choices with organic produce, antibiotic-free proteins and whole grains. There’s something for everyone to love on our menu!

    To keep things fresh, we also consistently introduce new meals to our mix that give your kid the opportunity to try new flavors and ingredients and our take on kid-friendly classics.

    We also have many meals that are available on our menu every week to allow kids to acclimate to new foods and expand their palates. It often takes 9–15 tries for kids to fully accept a food, so offering a new Nurture Life meal more than once will help kids learn to love new cuisines and nutritious ingredients!

    We are always evolving our menu and meals based on our customer’s feedback!

  • What makes Nurture Life’s healthy meal delivery different?

    For too long, parents have had to rely on meals that lack the nutrients and variety that their family, and especially their growing kids, need. Our meals give parents a new way to feed their families without having to compromise on nutrition, taste or quality for the sake of convenience. Here’s why else we think you’ll love Nurture Life.

    Nutrition Comes First

    Nurture Life is not just another food company; we’re a team of nutrition experts, trained chefs and busy parents—all working together to serve the best meals for your family and ours. We don’t settle for high-sugar, high-fat, high-salt foods just because they’re what so many kids and parents have gotten used to seeing on restaurant menus and grocery store shelves. We know that your kids deserve better.

    We believe that healthy futures start now, so for kids of all ages (and for the adults, too!), we always prioritize:
    - A full serving of veggies on every plate
    - Clean, thoughtfully sourced, organic ingredients
    - Antibiotic- and hormone-free proteins
    - Minimal added sugar and salt
    - Dietitian-designed recipes with the right nutrient balance
    - Age-appropriate portions

    We aren’t afraid to highlight what goes into every Nurture Life meal. Balanced nutrition is the first feature on every plate and in every bowl, from breakfast to lunch to dinner. That’s why kids and parents love our meals!

    Flavors Made for Kids (and Parents!)

    While balanced nutrition is the driving force behind all of our meals, we also know that even the healthiest meals won’t help if your kids flat-out refuse to touch what’s on their plate. That’s why we’ve worked so hard to refine our signature recipes. We know that there’s always room for improvement and are continuously tweaking and tailoring our meals based on feedback from the kids and parents we serve—including our own!

    Through this process of research and refinement, we’ve crafted meals that are just as kid-friendly as they are nutritious. Kids of all ages can find a favorite on our healthy kids meal menu, from oh-so-cheesy Mac & Cheese with Butternut Squash to crispy-crunchy oven-baked Chicken Bites. Kid-approved meals like these are why we’re a staple for families with even the pickiest eaters at the table.

    We’re Picky Eater Approved at Any Age

    Living with a little picky eater yourself? We know what it’s like, and we’re here to help you through this phase—whether it lasts a week, a month or more. We’ve marked our most picky eater-friendly kids meals as “Picky Eater Favs” to give you a quick way to try out the meals that other Nurture Life parents have told us are most commonly accepted by their kids.

    At the same time, you never know! Picky eaters are, well, picky—and their pickiness doesn’t always follow logic. Maybe it’s two colors of foods that “look weird,” maybe it’s two foods touching each other or maybe today is just a “no chicken, no way” kind of day. That’s why all of our meals are designed with flavors that kids actually like. Even if a certain meal is not marked as a Picky Eater Fav, it’s still been tested by picky eaters of all ages!

    We Have Adventurous Options, Too

    Research shows that the most effective way to combat picky eating is to be persistent in exposing your kids to new foods repeatedly, and studies also show that the more food exposure kids get (picky eater or not), the more accepting they’ll be toward new foods as they get older. To help you battle picky eating and to expand your kids’ palates from an early age, we also have more “adventurous” meals available, serving up creative flavors and interesting ingredients that your little ones may not be as familiar with.

    Just like our Picky Eater Favs, these kids meals are dietitian-designed and crafted with kids’ taste buds in mind. We recommend trying a wide variety of meals so that your kids can experience all the delightful flavors, textures and colors of freshly made food with no added preservatives. From healthy bowls to warm dinners to Portable Meals, there’s enough variety to give your kids something new—without overwhelming them.

    We maintain a consistent menu so that your kids can become familiar with our healthy meals over time, but we do also offer seasonal recipes and limited-time-only meals from time to time. Check back with our menu frequently to see what’s fresh!

    Flexibility to Fit Your Mealtime Routine

    Nurture Life meals can easily fit into your family’s weekly meal routine, no matter what that looks like. Every parent feeds their kids differently, and that’s perfectly okay! We make sure that our ready-to-eat healthy meals will fit into your schedule, habits and preferences—not the other way around.

    With Nurture Life’s ready-to-serve meals for babies, toddlers, kids and adults, you can:
    - Choose Meals that Meet Your Dietary Needs: We clearly label the ingredients that go into every meal. Before you order any meal, you can review potential allergens and common ingredient preferences (such as pork-free or soy-free), as well as the meal’s full nutrition panel.
    - Eat at Home or on the Go: If you have zero minutes to spare but still want to serve a healthy meal, pack up one of our Portables for your kids to eat on the way to soccer practice or music lessons. When you do have time to savor a meal together, you can instead serve a hot Nurture Life meal at home. It’s up to you!
    - Solve “Dinner Emergencies”: Whether the pantry is empty or you’re just plain worn out, Nurture Life meals are a quick, well-balanced family meal option that requires no prep and no mental energy. Keep your fridge stocked with our nutritious meals, and you can always have a warm, healthy meal on the table in just 2 minutes!
    - Keep a Healthy Option on Hand: Have a teen who’s never not hungry? Instead of store-bought snacks that tend to be full of empty calories, serve a kid-sized portion of a Nurture Life meal! The well-balanced protein, whole grains and veggies will provide a much more nutrient-rich energy boost.

    Wholesome Nutrition Delivered Right to Your Door

    Nurture Life’s weekly delivery puts freshly made, well-balanced, veggie-filled goodness on your family’s doorstep. We know that things don’t always go as planned, so it’s easy to pause or skip weeks as it suits your family’s ever-changing schedule. Whether you prefer to add a few Nurture Life Shareables to round out your homemade menu or you rely on Nurture Life as your main source of easy school lunches, we’re here to be your helping hand.

    Check out Nurture Life’s menu of healthy meals for the whole family, from the littlest babies who just are exploring finger foods to busy parents who are somehow managing to balance it all. We’ve got something nutritious and delicious for everyone!
