Grocery shopping, with it’s long lines and crowded aisles, can be a drag (where’d they move the almond butter this time?). Lucky for us, the process of physically going to the supermarket is totally optional. The fastest growing and parent-friendliest way to shop for food nowadays is through one of the many grocery delivery sites cropping up. Click through to discover some of our favorites for stocking up on fresh meals. You can thank us after dinner.


The brilliant folks behind Lighter developed this curated grocery delivery service in which they create custom meal plans for entire families and arrange for all the groceries to be delivered. They focus on infusing each meal with yummy whole fruits and veggies (hello, Blueberry Cobbler Overnight Oats and Plant Powered Pad Thai!), so that you aren’t enticed by the vending machine. The best part: You have the option to designate individual family member’s appetites (i.e. a “regular appetite” is for an average woman, a “big appetite” is for an average guy, and a small appetite is for a kid).

Cost: $4.80-$5.80/meal
