“While many parents strive to be the next Martha Stewart or Gordan Ramsey by cooking up a storm for their family every night, it may not always be feasible. So, having handy options like meal kits helps to take the guesswork out of mealtime,” says Melissa Halas, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, founder of SuperKids Nutrition, and a fellow Mama. “Family meals and cooking together is the best way to expand kids’ taste buds and spirit of adventure for new foods…[and] they are a great solution for those weeks when you just can’t add one more thing to your to-do list. ”
