Just the thought of shopping for a family meal after a busy day at work can be exhausting. Enter meal delivery services. My Food Bag was the first to bring ingredients and chef-created recipe instructions for evening meals to our doors. Its popularity has seen other companies move in to get a slice of the pie.

We trialled 4 of these services – My Food Bag, sister service Bargain Box, Emma’s Food Bag and WOOP.

For 2 weeks, our volunteers weighed delivered ingredients so we could assess the premium you pay for daily dinner inspiration. We also asked them, and their kids, to rate the finished meals.
