With LA traffic, getting home to prepare a home cooked dinner for your family every night is nothing short of a miracle. Cooking can be a fun family activity when you the time to do it, but when you’re making a mad dash from activities to bed time, squeezing in dinner can be a lot less stressful if you let someone else handle it. Put the pans down and grab your phone instead to place an order with one of these delicious meal delivery services in LA. Read on to discover the best (and healthiest) kid pleasing options.

One Potato

If you love the idea of a semi-prepared meal service (like Blue Apron), but wish the recipes were made to entice the chicken nugget lover in your family, then you’ll want to check out the service that offers all organic meal prep kits based on Weelicious recipes. The idea behind One Potato is to make it easy for parents to serve up healthy meals that appeal both to grown-ups and kids, even the fussy eaters. The best part, however, is that the kits are built to encourage kids to get involved in the dinner making process. That and the fact that each meal delivery comes with free slice-and-bake cookie dough.

How It Works: Once you join, you’ll give One Potato the size of your family and typical meal preferences. They will send you an email with pictures and recipes of the meals you’ll be preparing and eating for the week. Your weekly box will arrive packed with all the healthy, organic, fresh ingredients you need to prepare three different meals. Ingredients are already measured and chopped so all you have to do is put it all together. Each recipe should take 30 minutes or less to prepare. Every week you’ll get new recipes and ingredients and you can cancel or skip a week with prior notice.

Cost: $11.99 per adult meal and $4.50 per child meal for 3 meals per week.
