If you enjoy cooking, meal delivery services might not be on your radar — but they should be. Many meal kits provide the perks you love about culinary arts: You get to wind down in your kitchen, express your creativity, and experiment with new flavors. And since the ingredients are delivered to your doorstep, you never have to experience the frustration of your grocery store not having what you need for your recipe.

Nowadays, the options for meal subscription boxes are endless. Whether you have specific dietary requirements or picky eaters in your family, you can easily find one that fits your needs. There are dinner boxes that allow you to do the stress-relieving chopping and mixing yourself as well as ready-to-eat meals for quick work lunches and busy school nights.

Before investing in a meal delivery service, consider your budget, the number of meals and servings you need, the amount of time you have to cook, and your eating habits. Looking for a healthy meal delivery? Luckily, every company in our roundup provides at least a few healthy options on its menu. Plant-based eaters have plenty of delicious options, including Sprinly and Daily Harvest. If you want mindful portions, check out Nutrisystem and Boycemode. For family-friendly dinners, HelloFresh, Green Chef, and Home Chef are just a few of the kid-approved meal kit delivery options available. Don't let the prices turn you away: Most meal subscription services provide amazing discounts on your first few orders.

Keep scrolling to learn more about what each meal subscription costs, the menus and meal plans, the quality of ingredients, real customer reviews, and more. Bonus: Our Senior Editor at, Kimberly Holland, and I have tried some of these meal delivery services and included our honest feedback.

Editor's Choice: HelloFresh

meal delivery subscriptions
Hello Fresh

Not only has HelloFresh won over Senior Editor Kimberly Holland, but it also feeds over two million active customers every week. The meal delivery service is so popular because of its versatile menu, reasonable price, and easy-to-follow recipe cards. Each week you have access to new dishes that fall under HelloFresh's six meal plans: Meat & Veggies, Veggie, Family Friendly, Carb Smart, Quick & Easy, and Pescatarian. The rotating menu features more than 25 recipes each week and, in the past, has included chicken sausage-stuffed zucchini boats, one-pan black bean tacos, and creamy lemon dill salmon. The meal kits take anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes to prepare.

HelloFresh works with suppliers that are environmentally friendly and sustainable. The majority of produce isn't organic, but the company is particular with its quality, taste, freshness, and whether or not it's in season. Once you have an account, you can view the nutritional information and ingredient list of each meal by clicking 'My Menu' followed by 'See Full Recipe.'

Pricing: A two-person plan costs between $9 and $13 per serving. The four-person meal plan starts at $8 per serving for plans including three to six meals a week, and it goes up to $9 per serving for two meals a week. Shipping is $9 for all meal plans.

Availability: HelloFresh delivers everywhere in the U.S. except for Hawaii and Alaska.

Editor Review: "This is my favorite right now," Holland says. "The meals are very approachable and varied, but I also feel like it's very 'home cook' oriented. They utilize all the ingredients they send (using zest and juice from citrus, for example), and I've been highly impressed with the quality of food even after shipping."

Customer Review: "I recommend this company for anyone who loves to cook but is just so tired of coming up with a weekly menu," Laura says. "I have a full-time job and a child, so this was the perfect solution for me! And no wasted leftovers!"

Best Healthy Meal Delivery: Sunbasket

meal delivery subscriptions

Cooking healthy meals is no longer a challenge thanks to Sunbasket. Whether you're short on time or want to de-stress in the kitchen, Sunbasket offers nutritious meals for every lifestyle. There are 10 Sunbasket meal plans — Paleo, Carb-Conscious, Gluten-Free, Lean & Clean, Diabetes-Friendly, Chef's Choice, Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Mediterranean, and Fresh & Ready — to help you create a shipment suitable for your needs. The Fresh & Ready meals take three minutes to warm up in the microwave, while the meal kits take an average of 30 minutes to whip up. The Sunbasket menu changes every week, but you can expect to find dishes like Mediterranean shrimp and couscous salad and Mongolian beef and vegetable stir-fry in the rotation. You can order between two and 16 servings, depending on how many mouths you have to feed.

Most of Sunbasket's produce, eggs, and dairy products are USDA-certified organic, and all of the meat and seafood comes from farms and fisheries with responsible and sustainable practices. The proteins are antibiotic- and hormone-free and sometimes USDA-certified organic. The recipe booklets and Sunbasket app provide detailed information on the ingredients and daily nutritional value of each meal.

Pricing: For two people, Sunbasket meal kits cost between $11 and $14 per serving. For four people, all orders cost $11 per serving. The Fresh & Ready meals start at $9 for eight meals each week and go up to $12 for four meals per week. Shipping is an additional $8.

Availability: Sunbasket ships across the country, excluding Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, North Dakota, and some areas of New Mexico.

My Review: Is Sunbasket worth it? As a healthy eater, I vote yes. If you value organic, healthy foods and/or follow a specific diet, Sunbasket makes it so easy to stay on track without sacrificing flavor or portion size. Another reason I recommend Sunbasket is because it reduces food waste. Having the exact amount of ingredients to feed two people (my boyfriend and me) means there's little to no food waste after the meal is made.

Customer Review: "I have been a customer for approximately 10 months, and I receive two meals per week," Katie says. "I LOVE Sunbasket! I cook a lot too, but this gives me more variety and easy prep. Portion sizes are generous. Quality of food is really good, and customer service is high quality. I really enjoy the thought Chef Justine and crew put into their meals. Also, the app is user friendly."

Best Premium Food Delivery: Blue Apron

meal delivery subscriptions
Blue Apron

Blue Apron has four different meal plans: Signature, Vegetarian, Wellness, and Signature for Four. The Signature plan is very straightforward, as it includes all 14 meals on the menu for that week. You can select wellness and vegetarian options, plus dishes that aren't designed for specific diet needs. The Vegetarian plan offers meatless dishes, and the Wellness menu has nutritionist-approved meals that work well for Weight Watchers. Both the Vegetarian and Wellness plans have only about three meal options every week. For families, the Signature for Four plan is an excellent choice. This plan provides four servings as opposed to two, and it has options that aren't included in the other plans. Here are some examples of past Blue Apron menu items: Crispy duck breasts, creamy pesto cavatelli, and grilled steak tacos. It's safe to say this meal delivery service is for adventurous foodies. Meals take about 20 to 45 minutes to prep and cook.

The weekly subscription boxes come with high-quality meats, produce, herbs, and sauces, and have recipe cards for cooking instructions. You receive perfectly portioned ingredients but get to do the chopping, slicing, and dicing yourself. The meals require a variety of cooking methods, so it's a great option for people who want to learn or practice different culinary skills. If you enjoy sipping on vino, check out Blue Apron's wine club.

Pricing: Blue Apron's Signature, Vegetarian, and Wellness meal plans cost $10 per serving, regardless of the amount of meals per week. The Signature for Four meal plan starts at $8 per serving for four meals each week and goes up to $9 per serving for two meals a week. Shipping is $8.

Availability: Blue Apron ships everywhere in the U.S. besides Alaska and Hawaii.

Editor Review: "I canceled them pretty quickly because the shipments were a mess, BUT the food was very elevated and 'fancy,' which made me feel quite accomplished," Holland says. "It helped me expand my ingredient pantry, too, making things I've wanted to try more accessible."

Customer Review: "Blue Apron comes up with such delicious recipes and flavor profiles," Deborah says. "I especially value the dishes that are Weight Watchers compatible. The recipes are easy to prepare and allow me to try unusual flavors and elements I would not normally venture to cook. I sometimes feel like Anthony Bourdain trying out new and exotic dishes!"

Best for Families: Home Chef

meal delivery subscriptions
Home Chef

No matter how much free time you have, Home Chef allows you to whip up delicious meals for you and your family in less than an hour. If you want to cook as a family, reach for the 30- to 55-minute meal kits. Have less than 20 minutes? Consider adding a couple oven-ready and 15-minute meal kits to your order for busy nights. Home Chef's menu is filled with wholesome dishes for kids and adults alike, such as honey butter pork chops and cheese tortellini.

When signing up for Home Chef, you can mark certain food products you want to avoid, like peanuts and fish. There's also four ways to filter the menu: calorie-conscious, carb-conscious, under 30-minute meals, and vegetarian. Best of all, you can customize the protein options in each meal. Swap out seafood for chicken, beef burgers for Impossible Burgers, and regular chicken for organic chicken.

Pricing: You can choose two, four, or six servings and two, three, four, five, or six recipes per week. Weekly boxes cost between $36 and $324, which equals about $9 per serving. Shipping is $14 for orders with two servings and two meals. Otherwise, shipping is $8.

Customer Review: "I've always liked cooking, but I've never ventured out. Using Home Chef has been such an amazing addition to our family dinners," Bobbie says. "I haven't been disappointed with anything that we've tried. What's fun, is now being able to recreate these recipes ourselves. Before, I never would have thought about buying some of these items. Now they are staples in our kitchen."

Best Plant-Based Meal Delivery: Sprinly

Sprinly is the ultimate healthy meal delivery service. The meals are 100 percent plant based and gluten free, contain zero artificial preservatives and refined sugars, feature organic ingredients, and are delivered fresh.

Availability: Fresh N' Lean delivers to all 50 states.

Customer Review: "Every meal I've had is delicious," Sarah says. "I am gluten free, vegetarian, and I follow a strict macro plan, which makes it very difficult to find a meal prep service that can meet my needs with my dietary restrictions. Not only is it all delicious, but the portions are perfect and there's a very wide variety of food in each meal plan I've ordered."

Best Organic Meal Delivery: Green Chef

meal delivery subscriptions
Green Chef

Green Chef is a USDA-certified organic meal delivery service, offering a menu filled with high-quality meats, produce, and dairy products. There are three different meal plans ideal for keto, paleo, plant-based, and healthy eaters. Plus, each one is completely gluten free. The meal options are different every week, but past dishes included vegan-friendly roasted veggie bowls and keto cheesy artichoke beef patties. Between organic ingredients and restaurant-worthy recipes, Green Chef is one of the pricier meal delivery options on the market.

Each Green Chef meal kit comes with pre-measured ingredients, seasonings, and sauces. The recipes only take about 30 minutes with the help of step-by-step instructions with photos.

Best Prepared Meal Delivery: Freshly

meal delivery subscriptions

Freshly offers ready-to-eat meals with single servings. Everyone has different eating habits and goals, which is why the prepared meal delivery service provides a wide range of meal options. There are crafted classics, like homestyle chicken and macaroni and cheese; signature favorites, such as shrimp and andouille paella; healthy dishes, like lemony Mediterranean chicken; takeout creations, including chicken tikka masala; and proteins and sides, like flat iron steaks and mashed potatoes.

To heat Freshly entrées, put them in the microwave for two to three minutes. The meals are delivered fresh — no thawing required. Plans come with four, six, 10, or 12 meals per order, but you can always adjust later.

Availability: Freshly ship everywhere in the U.S. besides Alaska and Hawaii.

Editor Review: "I primarily use them when I'm going to be super busy with zero time to cook," Holland says. "It's definitely easier (and healthier) than takeout for me. I don't think I'd use them regularly because they're expensive, but in a pinch, when I know I'll be busy or just away from home, I'd order these."

Customer Review: "We love Freshly because it takes two minutes to prepare, the food is great and we don't have to spend time cleaning up," Sheri says on the Freshly website.

Best Vegetarian Meal Delivery: Daily Harvest

meal delivery subscriptions
Daily Harvest

Whether you follow a vegetarian diet or simply want to consume more fruits and veggies every day, consider Daily Harvest's healthy meal delivery service. The plant-based company offers nutrient-rich breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and desserts. The best part? You can fit the meals into busy schedules thanks to their minimal prep. All you have to do is transfer the frozen ingredients into blenders, stovetop pans, and microwaves for a few minutes, and they're ready to eat. The only food items on Daily Harvest's menu that take longer than five minutes to prepare are the 20-minute flatbreads and overnight chia bowls.

Daily Harvest provides the ingredient lists and cooking instructions right on the packaging. Most ingredients are organic, but they have an asterisk next to the organic ingredients for transparency. There are three plans available, including: Two weekly plans of either nine or 14 food items and a weekly or monthly shipment of 24 meals and snacks. To place an order, pick a plan and start adding whatever meals you want to your box.

Pricing: Daily Harvest meals, snacks, and desserts cost between $6 and $9 per serving, and the subscription boxes cost between $54 and $216. Shipping is free.

Availability: The company ships to 95 percent of the continental U.S., but you can enter your zip code to make sure it delivers to your area.

Editor Review: "Hands down the best way to make smoothies," Holland claims. "You can get so much variety without having to hunt down ingredients in the supermarket (which, lately, has been sold out anyway). I like that I can try just one of a flavor, and if I don't like it, I'm not stuck using up ingredients. Their grain bowls, oat bowls, and flatbreads are nice, too. A little light for me but yummy and super fresh."

Customer Review: "I've used a few online food delivery programs, and Daily Harvest is my favorite so far," Mel says. "The packaging and ease of preparation is exactly what I was looking for with the top priority being organic, plant-based vegan food with little or no salt, sugar. The soups and harvest bowls are great on the go, or, for a heartier meal, adding rice, pasta, ramen noodles and/or vegan meat makes a complete meal. The smoothies are a nice addition to my regular smoothie routine. I would not on my own buy some of the fruits and herbs that are included. Super happy and looking forward to the next delivery!

Best Keto Meal Delivery: Factor

meal delivery subscriptions

Eating low-carb meals doesn't sound too exciting. But trust me, I've tried Factor's prepared delivery service, and it's suspiciously good. Many customers reach for Factor meals to meet their keto diet needs, but the menu is filled with dishes that any non-keto eater (like myself) enjoy. The meal options rotate every week and always include a variety of healthy entrées for keto, low-calorie, dairy-free, vegetarian, and plant-based diets. In the past, Factor menu items have included Greek meatballs and pesto salmon. Don't worry about cleanup or prep time: You can heat up the single-serving meals in just two minutes.

Factor meals feature a variety of protein sources, fresh vegetables, and healthy fats, and they are usually between 500 and 800 calories. Most produce and dairy products are grown organically, and all meat products are premium quality as well as raised on sustainable farms.

Pricing: Meals cost between $11 and $15 per serving or between $60 and $198 per week. Weekly orders consist of four, six, eight, 12, or 18 meals. Shipping is free. Use code MEREDITH90 to save $90 off your first three weeks of Factor.

Availability: Factor delivers everywhere in the U.S., excluding Alaska and Hawaii.

My Review: I was extremely happy to learn that Factor meals feature (mostly) organic fruits and vegetables as well as animal proteins that are grass fed, pasture raised, and antibiotic- and hormone-free. The entrées align with my wellness goals: Feeding my body with fuel (real foods!) to improve my physical and mental health. And let's just say they blow typical chicken-and-broccoli meal prep recipes out of the water — if you know, you know.

Customer Review: "I love everything about Factor meal service," Roberta says. These are not run-of-the-mill meals! They are delicious and how they get all that goodness into a keto or low-arb diet is beyond me! I love that they come to my front door and go into the fridge. Only two minutes to microwave and voila! A meal I would have never made for myself. It has literally changed my everyday life!"

Cheapest Meal Delivery Service: EveryPlate

"These meals are cheap and convenient as everything is provided for you. The price of meals is equivalent or less than going grocery shopping, except you don't waste any ingredients. I no longer dread cooking as they are simple to follow. I get the meals portioned for two people, and it is more than enough, sometimes there's even enough for leftovers."

Best Vegan Meal Delivery: Purple Carrot

Best for Kids: Yumble
