New Baby Gifts – Best Meal Delivery Options

Are you looking for new baby gifts in the form of the best meal delivery options for  a friend with a new baby?

Cute little new baby gifts are all well and good but what you wouldn’t give for someone to fold the washing! When you’re a new parent, every waking moment’s accounted for.  There’s barely enough time to duck under the shower, let alone get out of the house.  You’ve got a tiny little someone you’d much rather be spending your time with!

It’s easy to see how the best-laid plans to eat a balanced diet quickly fall by the wayside.  The thought of meal planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning with a new baby in tow can be overwhelming.  It’s easy to opt to stay home in your pyjamas and settle for baked beans on toast or a greasy takeaway…and that’s how the kilos creep on.  Meal delivery is one of the most thoughtful, well-received new baby gifts you can give.  If you’ve got a friend or family member expecting a bub soon, here’s some of the best meal delivery options in your area.

New Baby Gifts That Count – Fresh Meals 2 U

The brainchild of busy Gold Coast restauranteurs, Fresh Meals 2 U focuses on delivering nourishing and delicious restaurant-quality meals right to your door…or someone else’s.  All that’s left to do is heat and eat!  Your new parent friends or family won’t have to sweat the small stuff in the kitchen because you’ve already taken care of the meal delivery for them.  And that means more time to spend doing the stuff that’s really important.  Find out more here or phone (07) 5529 8421.

Lite ‘n Easy

Lite n’ Easy’s the juggernaut of meal delivery companies in Australia and has been around for more than 25 years now.  Delivering portion and calorie-controlled meals from a seasonal, four-week rotating menu, they boast a range of meals designed with input from qualified dieticians and chefs.  You can customise your meal plan to ensure you reach your goals, whether it be weight loss or just to eat a more balanced diet and save time in the process.  The only downside is that Lite n’ Easy doesn’t cater for food allergies, intolerances or special dietary requirements.  If you’re considering meal delivery as a new baby gift, they’re a great option when it comes to mainstream tastes and food preferences and can be popped in the freezer for a quick microwave option between doing all that washing.  To find out more, phone 13 15 12 or click here.
