If you are asked “What’s for dinner?” from your family constantly, are tired of eating the same meals, have no time to shop and prep for ingredients, or picky eaters – meal prep is the key to success.

Why are family meals so important?

  • 71% of teens said they consider talking, catching-up and spending time with family as the best part of family dinners. (Columbia University Study)
  • Recent studies link lower rates of substance abuse, teen pregnancy and depression, as well as higher grade-point averages and self-esteem. Studies also indicate that for young children, dinner conversation is a more potent vocabulary-booster than reading, and the stories told around the kitchen table help our children build resilience (Family Dinner Project).

What do I need to bring?

Grab a cooler or insulted bag and show up! I suggest making this a date night with your spouse, roommate, or girlfriends. You get quality time with loved ones and head home with a cooler full of meals. Best of all, there is no clean up. The fabulous staff at Dream Dinners take care of all of that for you. You show up, grab your ingredients and directions in a bag for all meals in less than 1 hour and head home!

The pricing varies depending on serving size of 3 or 6 and how many meals you select per month. For 12 dinners the total was an average of 200$. When you consider that this includes all ingredients and will allow for leftovers for lunches this was a huge savings for my family. There is no longer the need for last minute drive thru or delivery. For an additional 20$ the staff at Dream Dinners will package the meals for you and all you do is walk in and pick up each month. This is perfect for the mega busy families!
