Nurture Life, the first and only subscription meal delivery service focused specifically on children, launches nationally this November. Created to serve time-pressed parents while meeting the evolving nutritional needs of growing kids, Nurture Life offers fresh, wholesome, organic, ready-to-eat meals delivered weekly, straight to the consumer’s door. The innovative service is designed for babies, toddlers and kids from six months to 18 years of age.
“Nurture Life fundamentally changes mealtime for busy families,” said Nurture Life Co-Founder Jennifer Chow. “Quick and easy often means compromises, especially when it comes to food. Nurture Life offers parents an alternative to hours spent cooking or tradeoffs in the quality and healthiness of frozen or takeout meals. We’re excited to offer parents time and peace of mind with our healthy, wholesome and convenient meals created for parents who want the best for their kids.”
Founded by tech-industry veterans and parents themselves, Steven Minisini and Jennifer Chow, Nurture Life was born out of their personal challenge to promote healthy eating for their kids while juggling busy schedules. With the guidance of the company’s culinary team and pediatric dietitian, the service incorporates the highest quality produce, proteins and ingredients into each meal. Organic and locally sourced, whenever possible, Nurture Life meals never include peanuts, tree nuts or shellfish and are free of artificial ingredients, refined sugars, trans fats and high fructose corn syrup. To eliminate cross-contamination on the most common allergies, meals are prepared, cooked and packaged on-site in Nurture Life’s state-of-the-art Chicago production facility.
Offering flexible plans that grow with families, Nurture Life’s unique subscription platform provides the convenience to configure and scale meal selections to fit a family’s needs over time. With multiple weekly plan options, including eight or 14 meals for babies and five or 10 meals for toddlers and kids, the service’s prices range from $45 to $119 per week. All meals are cooked and portioned based on the child’s age and nutritional needs, with weekly menu rotations featuring seasonal choices, as well as classic favorites so that kids can experience a variety of tastes and ingredients. Nurture Life delivers a week’s worth of meals tailored to the child’s feeding stage, such as Butternut Squash Puree for babies just starting solids, Pear, Apple, Quinoa & Cinnamon Puree for babies ready for combination purees and Salmon, English Peas, Golden Potato & Dill finger foods for babies learning to feed themselves. Toddlers and kids can enjoy Chicken Tenders, Mashed Yams & French Green Beans, Teriyaki Salmon over Brown Rice and Spinach Stuffed Gnocchi with Turkey Bolognese. Each order is packaged in an insulated box to maintain freshness. Meals are delivered cold, never frozen and simply need to be stored in the refrigerator until reheating.
A time and stress-saving solution for families of all shapes and sizes, Nurture Life takes the pressure and guesswork out of planning and cooking meals. Headquartered in Chicago, Nurture Life ships to the Midwest and East Coast, including major cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Dallas and Atlanta.
Kettlebell Kitchen, the New York City meal service with a focus on healthy eating, will launch home delivery this coming December. Founded in 2013 by former Army officers Joe and Andy Lopez-Gallego, and Chef Greg Grossman, Kettlebell Kitchen meals are currently available for pickup at 300+ gyms and fitness studios across the Tri-State area. The expansion will introduce Kettlebell Kitchen’s personalized, nutrition-driven meals to a wider set of consumers. Co-founder Chef Greg Grossman [OREYA Restaurant, recipient of an “Excellent” rating by The New York Times] will continue to innovate menu offerings and expand Kettlebell Kitchen’s verticals for healthy eating, weight loss, muscle gain, and sports performance.
“We know how stressed and busy New Yorkers can be. By providing one-on-one nutritional support and cutting out shopping, cooking, and cleaning time, we are bringing them a new level of convenience,” notes Co-Founder Andy Lopez-Gallego.
Kettlebell Kitchen provides consumers an opportunity to eat a variety of flavorful meals that help them reach their dietary goals. Every member of the program works with an advising nutritionist, who helps curate an experience that offers immediate results. Co-Founder and Chef Greg Grossman ensures the selection of offerings (including breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are high quality, featuring seasonal ingredients and chef-level preparations—engineered to fuel the body and provide energy and nutritional value.
“There’s a common misconception that healthy or fitness-geared food shouldn’t taste good. By using high quality proteins and fresh produce, we are debunking the myth,” says Greg Grossman.
