PERTH WINTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS: Bring the fun back into the kitchen! 

Winter is here and it’s getting very chilly outside for us West Australians – it’s time to rug up and crank up the heater! The July School Holidays Perth are probably the most challenging for the parents in terms of coming up with activities and keeping your little ones entertained, especially when the weatherman is not the kindest to us. My Foodie Box meal kit delivery is here to guide you through and take the weight off your shoulders when it comes to coming up with dinner and lunch ideas, doing grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning up, keeping kids entertained and all that at the same time.

My Foodie Box is all about family, starting from our very own daily work environment at our HQ in Maylands. My Foodie Box meal box delivery service is designed for busy families who feel like there is just not enough hours in one day! Don’t worry, that is where we come in.

Whether you are always on the go with barely any time to eat, let alone cook, or trying to feed a family of picky eaters on busy weekdays, you will find a meal kit box that is healthy, full of nutrition and flavour – simply just perfect for your whole family!

Quick and easy meals don’t have to be unhealthy! Thankfully we have been seeing a change in the mentality of healthy eating is expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient. That’s such a myth and inaccurate in today’s world. People often think that quick and easy meals only come from fast food restaurants. Luckily that’s not the case anymore and there’s so many ways to make healthy living a lifestyle for the whole family without breaking the bank. Parents and kids alike need quality fuel to get through the day, whether they’re at work, school or home. It’s all too easy to rely on the foods kids like at the end of a long day, rather than what’s balanced and nutritious. Healthy versions of classic favourites ensure you and your little ones reach a compromise. A primary focus for My Foodie Box meal kit delivery service is to keep kids fuelled up and focused (and parents happy) all day long and having some fun at the same time!

Think you might have some future chefs in your house?

Get the whole family involved in the kitchen with these 3 easy kids friendly recipes of well-known classics with our healthy twist on them (and kids won’t even know!)
