Introducing Nurturie: A Healthy Meal Delivery Service for Kids
You’ve had a busy day and you still have to plan and prepare dinner, make that two dinners, as your child refuses to eat anything that isn’t a buttered noodle or dinosaur-shaped protein. Add to that chopping everything into bite-sized pieces or pureeing meals for fresh baby food. Getting fresh, nutritious, age-appropriate meals that your kids will happily eat, on the table, day after day, is hard. Enter Nurturie. This new meal delivery service was created just for kids (infants, toddlers and bigger kids) to satisfy little palates with fresh, wholesome, ready-to-eat foods for breakfasts, lunch, dinner, and snack time.
Nurturie gives quality time back to busy parents who want to ensure their growing children are eating well. And it couldn’t be simpler to use—select meals from Nurturie’s expanding menu and fresh, nutritionally balanced, kid-tested meals arrive at your doorstep. Just heat, eat and enjoy! Nurturie’s opening menu includes 35 tested favorites with many new options in the works. Meals are available for a la carte ordering and can be bundled into your own weekly meal plan delivered on Sundays and Wednesdays. Products are delivered in compostable, single-serving packages that are microwave and oven safe. Meals are guaranteed fresh for three days from delivery (and up to two months for infant purees if frozen) as all meals are preservative-free. No subscriptions or one-size fits all meal plans required—just what you want, when you need it, locally prepared and delivered fresh.
Started by Regina Reale, Nurturie’s mission is to offer a convenient source for quality children’s meals—‘Healthy Meals Kids Love. Delivered!’ A mother herself, Regina became overwhelmed when she found that her toddler’s fussy palate was too often satisfied by nutritionally weak foods, leaving her not only burdened by cooking and organic ingredient sourcing but also by finding recipes that her daughter would eat. She, therefore, discovered cooking methods that incorporated a variety of nutritious ingredients into ‘kid-friendly’ dishes. The very first step in creating Nurturie was developing a core menu of these recipes that would make even the pickiest child happy. Every single dish has been taste-tested by a panel of children and parents with both groups rating them as hits (some parents even asked if they could get a serving for themselves!). Plus, all dishes are created with guidance from nutritionists to make sure kids get just what they need. Regina is the Founder and Nurturie's #1 customer.
Created by Culinary Director Chef Katy Sparks and cooked daily by her team of chefs, recipes give life to Nurturie’s motto. Chef Sparks’ Buckwheat Zucchini Pancakes with a Cherry Maple Dip packs loads of zucchini and walnut flour into nutrient-dense and naturally flavorful pancakes. All Natural Turkey Veggie Nuggets with Maple Cranberry Dip are packed with fiber and hidden carrots and cauliflower and even Cheese Pizza is built on a spelt crust, loaded with a tomato-vegetable sauce.
Nurturie also pays special attention to sourcing the highest-quality ingredients from local purveyors such as Berkshire Mountain Bakery, Faroe Island Salmon, Senat Poultry, Baldor Foods and Ace Naturals. Ingredients are organic whenever possible, grass fed, wild caught, sustainably-farmed and unprocessed. Nurturie offers the finest ingredients in recipes with real flavor that prepares kids for a lifetime of healthy eating. ‘Healthy Meals Kids Love. Delivered!’
Nurturie meals are handmade in New York City. Delivery is currently available in Manhattan and the outer boroughs but the Nurturie team plans to expand delivery to other major cities.
