4 Fresh Baby Food Delivery Services for Busy Families

Making homemade baby food isn’t difficult. After all, it doesn’t take much effort to smash up an organic sweet potato, right? But when you factor in the nutrition research, shopping, prepping, cooking... and multiply it by three meals a day, seven days a week, you just gave yourself a part-time job!

These fresh baby food delivery service providers were all created by parents who wanted to provide optimally nutritious and flavorful foods for little ones, without sacrificing precious time to be with their families. The little meals are so good, you’ll want to sample some for yourself!


Yumi

The Scoop

Yumi provides a convenient option for parents who want fresh, nutritious and tasty meals for their baby. Yumi was motivated by scientific research that says a baby’s brain, senses, fat cell production, and the inclination to favor sweets are all shaped during their first 1,000 days.

What’s Inside?

Three different varieties are available, starting with “Basics” – single-ingredient purees like pumpkin, pear, and chickpea. Then there’s “Mixed” and “Blends” varieties like Blueberry Smash (with blueberries, banana, chia seeds, dates, spinach, coconut milk, quinoa, wheat germ oil), and Ratatouille (with summer squash, kale, white beans, tomato, pear, sweet potato, red bell pepper and basil).

Is this baby food or something from a trendy cafe? You may find yourself “testing” spoonfuls before your baby gets a taste!

The Deets

Nutritionally dense food created with the help of chefs and nutrition experts. Fresh baby food is shipped once a week and you can pause or cancel anytime. Weekly plans start as low as $50, but you save an additional 20% by signing up for a monthly plan.

Always fresh, the food is raw or lightly steamed to maintain the maximum amount of nutrients and flavor.

What’s Inside?

Nutritious and yummy combos like carrots and zucchini, pear and banana, or more sophisticated combinations, like carrots, butternut squash with apples and oats. For future avocado lovers, there’s an avocado line, with varieties such as apple and avocado.

Nurture Life

(Enter OPEEQO during checkout to get $30 off your first order!)

The Scoop

Nurture Life understands you want your baby to eat the most nutritious food available, but it can get pretty time consuming to buy, prep, and puree wholesome meals to feed hungry tummies!

What’s Inside?

Delicious and healthy purees such as butternut squash, English pea, and Anjou pear. Toddlers (Ages 1-3) will love offerings like spinach stuffed gnocchi topped with turkey bolognese or the macaroni and cheese with cauliflower.

The Deets

One or two week subscriptions are available based on age. For stage one, it’s $35 for 8 meals per week (four 4-ounce containers), plus $6 shipping. You can save $5.00 if you bump up to the two-week plans.


Little Spoon

The Scoop

It’s hard to keep up with the all the trending superfoods. Little Spoon takes the guesswork out, so you’re not just getting superior quality food, but the right food for your growing and developing baby.

What’s Inside?

Superfood goodness! Little Spoon not only lists the ingredients – they also include their nutritional benefits. On a container of Blueberry Chickpea Spinach Pear Rosemary, it reads:

  • High in fiber and Vitamin C, pears are gentle on the stomach and help alleviate constipation.
  • Rosemary contains antioxidant rosmarinic acid, as well as several essential oils that are known to have anti- inflammatory and antifungal properties.
  • Blueberries are bursting with antioxidants and flavonoids that help benefit the eyes, brain and urinary tract.
  • Chickpeas are a plant-based source of protein and rich in fiber.
  • Antioxidants in spinach help protect against free radicals while Vitamin A is shown to keep vision and the immune system healthy.

The Deets

After a brief questionnaire, you’re given a personalized menu called a “blueprint” to suit the nutritional and developmental needs of your baby. One meal per day, delivered every two weeks is $69 with free shipping. Bonus: Each container comes with its own spoon!
