Meal kit delivery services are becoming increasingly popular as it offers the convenience of having groceries delivered to your home. However, with so many meal delivery providers on the market, Nicole Moore, a registered dietitian with the Augusta University Center for Obesity and Metabolism, offers the following tips to help you determine the right service for you.
- Consider your personal needs. Keep in mind your dietary restrictions and health goals. Also, take into consideration your skill level in the kitchen, your food budget, and the amount of time you can devote to preparing a meal.
- Make sure you are in control. In addition to making sure the delivery service is trackable, find out if the company not only allows you to view the nutrition facts for each meal but customize your plan to match your health goal.
- Monitor and reassess. Take a moment to think about how the service is meeting your dietary needs and helping you stay on track with your eating habits. Do not forget to also take into account how time-efficient and cost-effective the service is for you and your family.
