It wasn’t until I was pregnant with my daughter that I started taking a hard look at the choices I was making in my life. I guess children will do that to you. I made note of the foods I consumed and products I slathered on my growing body. I was carrying the most precious cargo. I knew from the moment I heard that little heartbeat on the monitor I would do everything in my power to ensure I was providing a healthy and safe environment for her! That started with me making wholesome diet choices while pregnant and every day thereafter.
Fast forward to present. I have a spunky, sassy little 19-month old. Let’s just say feeding time is, well, complicated. When she was a baby, she would eat pretty much anything. Now she realizes she has a voice, an opinion, and you better believe she makes her feelings known (LOL). My awesome eater has become quite picky and figuring out new and healthy food choices has become a challenge. Luckily, there’s what the modern mom likes to call dinner miracles; I’m talking about meal delivery services. I was approached by Nurture Life to review their products and provide an honest review. I have to say, I’m blown away!
In this modern age, how often do working moms have time to clean house, let alone make elaborate nightly dinners? I’m a SAHM with a FOMO (fear of missing out) child on my hands and I even have a hard time managing it all! Nurture Life alleviate stress by providing ready-to-eat meals that are so convenient for busy families!

Nurture Life sent us five meals for my little toddler to try! Check them out below:
After trying all the meals, I was surprised that she loved them all, but one! The Tortellini was the only no-go. She actually picked the peas out and ate those, but I’m guessing she just isn’t used to the noodles because she hadn’t had it before. I finished up what she didn’t eat and thought it was fantastic! I actually tried all of them. They were so good and tasted home cooked!
All in all, we thought Nurture Life was a huge success for our family. Naturally, dealing with a toddler makes meal times challenging, but Nurture Life takes the anxieties and stress away. The ready-to-eat meals were reheated and served in minutes, making life so much easier! I was extremely pleased that their meals are all-natural, vegetable-fed, animal welfare rated, antibiotic-free, and contain no growth-enhancing drugs!
I loved how Nurture Life’s website listed the recommended portions per meal depending on your child’s age. With the childhood obesity problem ravishing our nation, I think it’s important to note the appropriate portion sizes based on the growing child’s age and size.
MyPlate is a nutrition guide published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture that identifies the appropriate portions of food groups according to your age. Nurture Life offers a wide variety of produce, starches and proteins that are based on these MyPlate guidelines for all of their pre-made meals.
Not only were the meals a huge hit with my little one, but they were also packed full of wholesome goodness and conveniently delivered to my front door! Have you grocery shopped with a toddler. Yeah, its a nightmare! I’m completely in love with this delivery service and highly recommend it!
