My Honest Nurture Life Review
As a working mom of two toddlers with a third baby on the way who recently returned to the office, juggling my commute and work and family responsibilities have been difficult. Especially at mealtime. After the long days at the office, I was incredibly tired at mealtime. While chatting with my neighbor who has three kids of her own, she mentioned using Nurture Life during the week for her kids’ meals. I had never heard of Nurture Life. But, finding meals my kids will enjoy is often like a never-ending game of trial and error. So I thought it was worth learning more about Nurture Life.
Nurture Life is a subscription service that delivers fresh, healthy meals for babies, toddlers, and big kids. After checking out Nurture Life’s site, I was surprised by the wide range of meals for my kids. Their ready-made kids’ meals are delivered directly to your door. This sounded great, but I was a little concerned that my kids would enjoy the food, but I found a discount online to try it so I decided to test it out last week.
My Nurture Life Order Experience
Nurture Life’s impressive range of meal options, including “picky eater favorite,” made choosing meals easier. As a parent of two picky eaters, finding something my kids will eat is a job in and of itself. By far, the most challenging part of ordering was choosing just nine Nurture Life meals.
I ordered a combination of kids’ meals, one grab-and-go option, and one snack to get the whole experience. My order came as scheduled, and the packaging ensured each meal arrived fresh.
Prepping Our Nurture Life Meals
Each meal is individually sealed and includes easy-to-read packaging that provides heating instructions, a list of ingredients, and an image of the meal. This became particularly helpful in allowing our toddlers to choose the meal they wanted.
Using the microwave to heat the meals was quite convenient, but I did use the oven a few times. I prepared a different meal for each of our kids at each sitting, which was easy for me and fun for them. They were always curious about what was on their sibling’s plates, which helped them try new things.
What The Real Judges (Our Kids) Thought?
The overwhelming favorite of all nine meals was the Chicken Tortellini. I was surprised that neither of our kids liked chocolate bites. However, I tried them and would rate them 5 stars!
While there was no obvious sign of hidden butternut squash in the Mac & Cheese, the hidden veggies in the Beef Tacos were far from it. Thankfully, our kids liked the carrots and didn’t fuss. Except for the snack, our kids loved each of their Nurture Life meals. Even better is that they finished their plates without prompting nearly every time. This was a huge stress relief and a win for the family.
Thank You Nurture Life
I found Nurture Life to be a lifesaver for our family. Particularly for preparing meals during a busy work week when time is really of the essence. As a bonus, since Nurture Life meals are fresh and designed by nutritionists for growing kids, the dreaded meal-time mom guilt was a non-issue. As a result, I did not have to worry about cooking, and there was almost zero mess after each meal. This alone would make me try Nurture Life. Plus, I had more time to spend with my kiddos in the evening, rather than spend that time prepping meals and cleaning up the kitchen.
Being able to place orders for hectic weeks helps save time and eliminate meal-time stress. For a working parent back at the office with picky eaters, Nurture Life makes mealtime easy. I only wish I had found it right after having my first child.
