If you're like me, when you were a kid, you couldn't wait to get older and be in charge of everything, especially the meals that were served (broccoli? not on my watch!). Now, I've learned that being in charge of the meals is probably one of my least favorite parts of being an adult. Add some picky eaters (my children) into the mix and it has really just lost its luster. Fortunately, with HelloFresh, I can get everything I need to make delicious meals at home with none of the planning or shopping to go along with it. They have 30+ different meals each week to suit different dietary needs as well as family-friendly recipes perfect for picky kids!

Meal Customization


HelloFresh lets you customize your meal boxes more than ever before; you can change, swap, or upgrade some of your sides and proteins, or even add on extras to make your meal more complete. I've selected a few meals here that show you exactly what you can modify. You can swap out your protein if you'd rather have beef instead of pork, or you can substitute cauliflower rice or broccoli to suit your dietary preferences or just to satisfy your tastebuds or those of your family members.

Add-Ons Galore!


Not only can you swap out items in your meals, but you can also add on additional meals. HelloFresh has you covered with everything from breakfast to desserts, and even oat lattes! You could have egg bites or oatmeal for breakfast, BBQ wraps with a cup of soup for lunch, and then finish the day out with some chocolate hazelnut cheesecake for dessert.

Or you could just add some garlic bread or a crunchy sesame salad to your box and add some protein to make it a complete meal!


You won't even have to shop for that protein because HelloFresh offers anything from chicken to beef as an add-on so that you can make your own meals, too. And if you're stumped on how to use those proteins, you can browse their website for some popular meals and recipes. They provide the ingredient lists for serving either 2 or 4 people making it super easy to build a meal for your family. I know my kids enjoy things that are quite simple, so being able to just get some extra proteins to serve them alongside a more exciting meal for my husband and me is definitely convenient!

If the endless options for everyday meals haven't convinced you, they even offer some great options for entertaining! They recently offered a Father's Day Snack Board or you could take one of these Foccacia flatbreads as an appetizer for your next get-together. I think that these cheesecake swirl bars would be a great dessert option for a party, too!

Final Thoughts

Whether you have run out of ideas for dinners, don't have time to shop, or if you just want to offer something fun at your next social gathering, HelloFresh really does have you covered. I love that they offer such variety and that you can shop for any of your daily meals making it a true one-stop shopping experience, and even better- it's conveniently delivered straight to your door!

I am a homeschooling mother of four; 3 boys and 1 girl. My youngest son was just born in January 2022, my other boys are 4 and 6, and my daughter is 7. I am a former educator and have taught both elementary art and Special Education.

I have been reviewing boxes for MSA since January 2018 and have reviewed everything from activity and clothing boxes for kids to clothing, beauty, and pampering boxes for women. I have also reviewed boxes focused on home goods and even some men's boxes with the help of my husband! 

I love to discover new brands and try new things!
